The Now Show Returns - Preview
Hold on to your hats! The Now Show returns to Radio 4 tonight at 6.30pm.
Here's Producer Julia McKenzie with the gossip:

So a few calls were hastily made and luckily the excellent BBC Radio regular Laurence Howarth (Safety Catch, The Jason Byrne Show, Look Away Now) was able to step in to be an extra member of the cast whilst Steve frantically zipped through the script re-allocating parts.
Here's a sneak preview:
Get well soon Hugh, we want you back next week! NB this week's stand-up guest is Ian Stone and next week we'll be joined by the mighty Jon Culshaw.
