Proof of my radio comedy prowess has surfaced.
I've recently found the Lee & Herring Radio 1 Show floating about on the magical internet, from way back in 1994/5.
And finally a nagging teenage memory of having phoned into some show or other has been solved. For ages I thought it was The Armando Iannucci Radio 1 show, but no such me-ness was to be found within. All cleared up now.
If you care, and you do, my decade old 17 year old voice can be heard below:
My very voice
I was 17, ok.
They are ogg files. This is not a mysterious audio format from the Hidden Realms. It's perfectly normal. The fact that Windows Media Player and Real Player seem unable to play them is not proof that oggs are obscure - it's proof that Windows Media Player and Real Player are utter rubbish. Winamp 5 can play with them with no problems at all, unless you are Kieron, and hence the enemy of all technology.
If anyone has the ability to turn ogg into mp3, then email them to me - I'll smile down upon you from Comedy Heaven forever more. And just because it will make Stuart Campbell quiet his whiny mouth.
If there's anyone who reads this blog who doesn't like Boothby Graffoe and his cavalcade of misery, and hence have the good sense to want to hear Lee & Herring's non-Fist of Fun Radio 1 stuff, then it would seem that you are interested in the illegal pirating of the BBC's intellectual property, despite their never attempting to release the series commercially, nor ever repeating it after 1996. You dirty, evil, thieving pirate scum. Email me for details. Even Mitch Benn.
