As part of BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Autumn schedules, broadcaster Steve Penk (above) introduces a selection of new and old Radio Nightmares. There’s little funnier on live radio than when things go wrong, listeners absolutely love those moments.
In a special showcase Steve Penk digs out some of the funniest of them old and new, as well as giving listeners exclusive access to his collection of audio archives.
Steve says ‘I’ve always loved those special unscripted moments on live radio, where somebody gets a fit of uncontrolled laughter and then can’t stop, or something goes slightly wrong, it makes brilliant radio.
‘A few years back I presented a series of Primetime Television shows for ITV in the UK featuring the best of those telly moments that have gone wrong (TV Nightmares) but nobody has ever done the radio equivalent on a large scale throwing it open to the entire radio industry, until now.
The Program will be a celebration and a joyful showcase of all those wonderful moments we all love to hear, and I’d like to hear from anyone in Radio who’s ever had a Radio blooper moment. I want to feature as many as I can. Please send us your audio to be considered for the program.’
