6 episodes

Described as "witty and addictive", this humorous show pokes fun at the fake-smile-filled, and back-stabby world of the British media industry. Follow along with the often amusing and occasionally heart-breaking story of Nick Bellamy - a young British media hopeful - as his path steers him around egomaniacal bosses, slutty and manipulative co-workers, and accusations of chair-sniffing, all in the hope of one day becoming a successful radio DJ; perhaps, even, The Mourning DJ.
(The first two seasons have now been archived. Thanks to better equipment and knowledge obtained since the beginning of this series, they're being remastered.
They'll be available to listen to again, soon.)
If you enjoyed the Ricky Gervais hit "Extras", you'll probably enjoy this.

    The Breaks

    The Breaks

    Nick recalls the time he serenaded the lead singer of a well-known Oxford indie band.

    His flirtation with girl band member Keri Facinelli comes to a head - but not in the way you are probably thinking. His well-intentioned but roughly executed creativity lands him in the middle of yet more drama.

    Strawberry Blonde Season

    We continue our journey with Nick Bellamy as he struggles on at troubled radio station Air fm. In the previous season finale, we learned that the object of his college affections - Linda Applewhite - was hired as his co host and producer. We find out how that's going.

    Another live on air call poses something of an opportunity for a content idea...

Addictive Audio At It’s Finest!

I thought I’d like this... I didn’t know I’d have to binge listen to the whole thing in a day!

What a show!

I’m hooked after just listening to one episode, core blimey does Neal tell a story and tells it well. Even though the episodes are short, you feel gripped on every word he says, you don’t notice the length of the show. I’m new to the show so I’ve got the fortune of listening to his back catalogue and I honestly cannot wait.

If I could more than 5 stars I would. Subscribe now!

Intelligent writing

I caught up with the bonus episode after Series II where Neil V, answers questions about the series and his take on the UK radio industry.
With this as background, series III has arrived and is very well produced and the saga continues.
Like most authors there is an element of cathartic release ( esp. if you follow him on twitter) but it manages to avoid becoming bogged down in pity and instead is amusing and original.
