Radio Sitcom/Sketch Shower

En av mina största nöjen när jag pendlar eller vill slappna av är att lyssna på Engelska BBC Radio 4 radio sitcom eller sketch-shower. Problemet med dessa är att det ofta inte är lätt att hitta dom bästa, samt att det kan bli svårt att ladda ned dom från Internet.

I ”samarbete” med Archive.org så har jag listat några av dom roligaste och mest underhållande radio shower som jag lyckats leta fram, om du också vill prova på detta fantastiskt underhållande medium. För att underlätta så har jag länkat till Archive.org sidorna redan. Det enda du behöver göra är att scrolla ned och välja i vilket format du vill ladda ned showen i. Normalt sett är detta MP3, då det fungerar på samtliga plattformar.

Om du använder en Android telefon så rekommenderar jag Smart Audiobook Player, vilket IMHO är den bästa spelaren för Android plattformen. Om du använder Apple iOS så anser jag att den bästa ljudboks-spelaren är, och förblir, MP3 Audiobook Player.

Låt oss börja titta på listan MED inbördes ordning. Jag listar dom jag tycker är bäst först, dock är alla riktigt bra och värda att lyssna på.

Bleak Expectations

The Museum Of Everything

John Finnemore’s Double Acts
The writer and star of the multi-award winning sketch show John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme and the sitcom Cabin Pressure writes these standalone half-hour comedies. Each one is a self-contained story, with its own cast, and all strictly adhere to the overarching theme of ’ideas John has had for this series’. They range from hot-desking office workers attempting to conduct a romance at the rate of four minutes a day to a band of explorers beginning to wonder if they’ll ever reach Australia’s Great Inland Sea.

A manic mixture of sketches and stand-up wherein Lee is supported by comedians such as Milton Jones, Mark Watson and Rhod Gilbert, plus music from a stellar array of guests (including Tony Hadley, Tom Robinson, Midge Ure, Suggs, Alison Moyet, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Jamelia), all of whom are dragooned into the tomfoolery and mercilessly lampooned.

Hobby Bobbies
Nigel is probably Britain’s longest serving Police Community Support 
Officer, and Geoff is probably the laziest. They make quite a team.
