That Mitchell and Webb Sound

I was recently introduced to That Mitchell and Webb Sound(comedy sketch show that ran on BBC Radio 4 2003 & 2005) and I can safely say that it’s without doubt the funniest thing I have ever heard. Mitchell and Webb may, more recently, be known more for their on screen antics in the form of Peep Show,and for anyone who is a fan of the TV sohow I would advise strongly you get your hands on the first two radio series.

I’m told that they are also repeating the show on BBC Radio 4 at the moment so check out the schedule there if want to catch these guys in action.

Also, if you’re really desperate to get your hands on a copy of the first and second radio series, drop me an email and ill see what I can do.

Orla Barry
When it’s an art exhibition!!

Walking around Orla Barry’s exhibition up at IMMA over the weekend I couldn’t help but feel that if Orla had discovered Blogging way back when, that these random musings, observations, pictures and video would have ended up on orlabarry.blogspot.com and not on the walls of the Irish Museum of Modern art!
