Sandi's Final News Quiz

It was Sandi Toksvig's last News Quiz as host this week and I got to make this montage for the end of the show - There are certainly worse ways to spend a day than listening to 9 years of News Quizzes. 

And then, at the end, I put all the master tapes in the wrong boxes to really screw things up for the next person who tries.

And while we're on the subject of archives, both BBC Radio Wales, and BBC Radio 4 Extra have been repeating old episodes of Elis James' Pantheon of Heroes. Producer Sharif Shahwan has taken the opportunity to start a clips page - perfect for people who always wished our show was 2-3 mins long.

All The Dragons

For the next few days every single episode of Here Be Dragons Series 2 will be available on the BBC Radio Wales website. 

And actually, while you're there, do check out the rest of the BBC Radio Wales' comedy section. As well as repeats of Pantheon Of Heroes (a show I co-wrote with Elis James and Benjamin Partridge), you'll find The Unexplainers, the Machynlleth Comedy Festival Showcase and Alan Thompson and Rob Brydon Reunited. You'll also find Rhod Gilbert's Saturday morning show, the latest edition of which was presented by myself and Benjamin Partridge (and I think we'll be standing-in for Rhod once again in mid-June).

Away from Radio Wales, I'm working on Sandi's final series of The News Quiz, The XFM Breakfast Show (once Jon returns from his holidays) and a brand new sitcom for GOLD written by myself and John-Luke Roberts - Bull

But I'll bang on about that a lot more closer to the time.
