Armando Iannucci's Radio One Music ShowsTaking a similar format to Chris Morris & Lee & Herring's radio shows that were broadcast around the same times, Armando Iannucci was flanked throughout these shows by Peter Baynham & David Schneider.
Also making appearances (with varying degrees of regularity) are Richard Herring, Stewart Lee, Rebecca Front & Steve Coogan.
Iannucci's considerable editing skills are given showcases with The Best Of....Simon Bates' "Our Tune" while his imagination runs riot over a number of subjects & phone in ideas.
Rich, Stew, Peter & the others contribute characters & seemingly ad-libbed ideas throughout the shows. Broadcast over two series (the first consisting of two half-hour shows, and the second of four hour-long outings) Iannucci's tenure of the airwaves was considerably shorter than either Lee & Herring's or Morris's - but don't overlook these wonderful shows, because - as Armando himself says - "Anything you ever heard on radio one over the past five years is about to be put through a blender & restitched together the wrong way round."
