The Larks Ascending by Tim WorthingtonThe Larks Ascending
A complete guide to comedy, humour and downright oddness on BBC Radio 3, from Kenneth Williams’ archival documentaries about strolling players who never existed, through Rowan Atkinson’s academic profiles of public figures who never existed, right up to Armando Iannucci’s interval talks about composers who did exist, but they’re fitting around him and his using his ears whether they like it or not.Find out more here.

Can't Help Thinking About Me by Tim WorthingtonCan’t Help Thinking About Me
An hilarious tour of how and why I ended up on the BBC News channel with a big caption saying ‘CLANGERS EXPERT’. From growing up in a noisy household with clowns on the Christmas Tree to asking some elderly Elvis Presley fans if they’d mind keeping the volume down, you’ll find the answers to so many questions nobody ever asked in here. There’s sex, there’s drugs, there’s rock’n’roll… and there’s Skiboy!
