I loooovvveee John Finnemore!
Everything he does is clever as well as funny, he deserves it. (and I can't stand Danny Baker!)
I was so sad when Cabin Pressure finished, I hope he does another sitcom soon.

Yes! John Finnemore is my audio crush. His souvenir programme gets me through my running exploits!

I love JF but I think that's tough competition because there's a lot of love and sympathy for Danny Baker, and LL's programme the day Bowie died was outstanding radio.

There's going to be another series of Double Acts at some point, which is good news. Don't know if he will manage to get another series out of the Souvenir Programme format. I've enjoyed both enormously.

Double Acts was also excellent, and I thought a bit of an enjoyable move from the sketch/sillier comedy.
Souvenir Prog is bloody hilarious still, but I do think that he might not be able to string it out much longer, is it just me or is the end sketch "well, since you ask me for a tale of...." getting a bit stale now?

Yaaaay!

Yes yes! Absolutely my favourite broadcaster!

I really want him to do another sitcom, glad Double Acts has got another series!

As an Archers listener, I need an antidote to relentless gloomy news, so I am delighted to say that he won! Whoop whoop whoop! grin grin grin
