My Edinburgh fringe run starts a week on Sunday – https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/sherwoodjam
Tomorrow night is election night, and I will be broadcasting on Guerilla Cricket, the internet radio station that normally broadcasts, well, games of cricket. But we are diversifying for one night only from sport into democracy.
I have a long-standing obsession with election night broadcasts. You may have seen me on ‘Sixty Years of Swing’ with Peter Snow, and if you didn’t, you can still see it here – http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05tb251/sixty-years-of-swing
I will be presenting the coverage, with the help of Carrie Quinlan, star of all the best comedy on Radio 4, including the News Quiz. Andy Zaltzman will be joining us on the phone. As will BBC cricket commentator Daniel Norcross, who will be sniffing out tenuous cricket angles in the evening’s proceedings.
The show will feature Guerilla Cricket’s trademark combination of jingles to illustrate the key events, and a constant Twitter conversation with the listeners. You can tweet us @GuerillaCricket throughout the show.
Show starts at 10pm, and we’ll probably go on til about 5am, or longer if it looks like something exciting is about to happen. Listen in at http://www.guerillacricket.com or download the TuneIn app on your phone, and find ‘Guerilla Cricket’.
Chat Show Roulette is a new Radio 4 show hosted by Justin Edwards. Each guest improvises a brand new character getting interviewed on a chat show. And when the interview requires some music, I start playing my keyboard, whether the guest likes it or not.
Episode 1 was last week, and featured Kevin Eldon, Susan Calman, and Marek Larwood. It’s on iPlayer – http://t.co/eqkHhYONRR
Episode 2 is tonight at 11pm. We hope you like it.
