Bits from Last Week's Radio

"Bits from Last Week's Radio" was a short-lived radio programme that aired from Jan 1995-July 1996. There were 24 hour-long episodes and it was broadcast on BBC Radio 1. It starred Greg Proops. It was written and produced by Ear Drum Productions on behalf of Unique Broadcasting and recorded at The Sound Company in London by Joss Sanglier

The show was a mixture of music and sketches linked by Greg Proops with the sketches made to sound as if they were items collected from radio shows. In reality, of course, they were parodies written and produced by the team and performed by two teams of performers. The teams were split into "The Americans" and "The British," and were recorded separately. Sketches covered subjects such as Hospital Radio, the supposed original recording of the Hindenberd Disaster, the shooting of JFK, phone in programmes, religious programmes, news programmes and more.

Although the sketches were heavily produced to be as realistic as possible, at the end of the mixing process they were then degraded to make them sound as if they were recorded by listeners, or were from a very old archive. Particular attention was paid to, for instance, if the item would have been recorded from one reporters microphone. The sketch respected this and everything was recorded using just one microphone to give the right effect.
