In this special pre-Sony Awards podcast, number 110 [it’s with Orange Mark, bear with us], we actually get dressed into our monkey suits as we prepare to attend the “radio Oscars” in London’s actually-real Mayfair. Uniquely, the podcast is recorded on Andrew’s laptop, without the new mic; yes, we are kicking it old skool, but counterintuitively we are sitting in an actual BBC studio at 6 Music, booked out by Andrew’s 6 Music producer Jonny, which is all soundproofed and everything. Talk is mainly of Britt Ekland, sex with Neanderthals, Jeremy Paxman, Nigel Farage’s trouser leg, Rome, Hitler, infecting Brian Cox’s laptop with a dead squirrel and the Great Fire at the British Library. Wish Richard luck – by the time you hear this AIOTM will either have won or not won a Sony Award. And congratulations to Stewart Lee on his Bafta nomination, which is no way overshadows Richard’s achievement.
And we apologise to anyone who walked past the studio and saw Richard’s bum at the glass in the door while he was changing. [Not pictured]
