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.

If you enjoyed the Ricky Gervais hit "Extras", you'll probably enjoy this.

Insightful funny and MEGA cuteypatootey

I've never been to England so I've certainly never had any experience of the English media but the way this guy talks about his early years trying to crack the radio stations is just charming and endearing. As an avid podcast listener I heard about this one because it was recommended to me by a girlfriend in Europe and now I'm two episodes ahead of her and nearly done with the first season.
I can't wait to hear more of this show. God bless you Nick.
