Welcome to Radio Active – ‘Britain’s first national local station’ – as presenters Mike Channel, Anna Daptor, Mike Flex, roving reporter Nigel Pry, and Mike Stand take the hiss out of the airwaves with a hilarious parody of our radio times. Featuring the HeeBeeGeeBees, Status Quid and Kenny Rogered, this unique radio station also has some royal visitors, goes on the road to meet the general public and announces the winners of the Radio Active Awards! It’s 19 minutes past exactly, as the get-up-and-go-show brings you traffic reports, time checks, music, more time checks, ridiculous Recipes of the Day, Miranda the Medium – and some good news about Bucks Fizz.

Starring Angus Deayton, Helen Atkinson-Wood (Mrs. Miggins in Blackadder), Geoffrey Perkins (BBC TV’s former Head of Comedy), Philip Pope (Old Harry’s Game) and Michael Fenton Stevens (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and co-written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill).

This cult classic BBC radio comedy was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 during the 1980s, and later transferred to television as KYTV.
