Steve Coogan, Tim Key and Dom Sells Pants in Leicester Square! #325

The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X Podcast

It’s podcast time! That’s right - the latest episode of The Chris Moyles Show On Radio X Podcast is here. We kicked off the week by speaking to Steve Coogan about his upcoming tour ‘Stratagem with Alan Partridge’. He told us Alan will be offering ‘life changing’ advice to the audience after becoming a self proclaimed life coach over lockdown. It was a double guest Tuesday as we were then visited by Tim Key! Tim told us all about his new book of poems and conversations, ‘Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush’ which reflects on the various lockdowns. Chris inferred that Tim really missed the pubs in lockdown after reading a few of the poems and Tim was surprised how quickly that fact had come to light! Dom also went on an adventure into Leicester Square this week to sell some of the Chris Moyles Show Pants! After a fair amount of rejection - Dom’s interesting selling tactics saw him flog a few pairs and receive an old ten pound note. Well Done Dom.And if that wasn’t enough, here’s more…- Matt Can Play The Didgeridoo! - Dom on the Alan Titchmarsh Show- Dan O’Connell, aka David BrentEnjoy!The Chris Moyles Show on Radio XWeekdays 6:30-10am

Hugh Quarshie and Steve Coogan, the Paraorchestra, Daisy Haggard

Front Row

The murder of Stephen Lawrence in 1993 and the subsequent police investigations threw up a lot of questions about institutional racism and corruption within the force. Another enquiry which began in 2006 was led by DCI Clive Driscoll, who decided to go right back to basics and investigate the crime anew. In a new three-part drama on ITV, Steve Coogan plays Driscoll and Hugh Quarshie plays Stephen’s father, Neville. We speak with them both about the murder, the trial, the enquiry and what a drama like this can add to our understanding of a tragedy.Conductor Charles Hazlewood created the Paraorchestra 10 years ago, and in their first year of public performances they already ticked off playing at the 2012 Paralympics closing ceremony. It’s the world’s only large-scale ensemble of professional disabled and non-disabled musicians, which tackles the traditional and not-so-traditional. Charles Hazlewood and musician Tilly Chester explain the orchestra’s past and future, and why Paraorchestra is such an important ensemble in today’s musical world.The first series of dramedy Back To Life aired a couple of years ago, to wide spread acclaim. A new series has just begun on BBC3. Conceived, written by, and starring Daisy Haggard it tells of a woman who has just come out of jail after serving an 18 year sentence for murder. She returns to live in the town where the murder happened, trying to get on with her life: reestablishing relationships, suffering the derision of neighbours and avoiding confrontation. The new series launched last night and Daisy joins us to discuss writing a very dark comedy.Presenter: John WilsonProducer: Simon Richardson
