Rupert Jones & Thomas Bowker – No Working Title
Rupert Jones, 24, got involved in Hospital Radio at the tender age of 14. He eventually got his own show, albeit with an audience of up to 4 people, when he was 16. Thomas Bowker, 24, grew up in Bristol and despite his mum and sister having the local accent; he appears to have lost it. Rupert and Thomas met through student radio at Cardiff University where they were both studying Journalism, Film & Broadcasting.
Rupert explains, "We first met near the end of the first year of University when I had the dubious honour of 'training' Tom at 7 in the morning, to present a show on his own. After one such training session I invited Tom to stick around and appear on my amazing Breakfast show (also with a listenership of about 4) and despite being quite rubbish, we got on well and seemed to find the same things funny. For the second year we decided to do a show together and set about writing loads of features, sketches, parodies, songs and anything else that popped into our heads."
Towards the end of their university course they decided that a job in radio would be quite nice and not too much work and so set about sending demo's to stations. After 18 months, posting around 90 demo tapes, and driving a six hour roundtrip every Friday night to present an unpaid overnight shift at a radio station they landed jobs in commercial radio in Oxford where they 'try to be funny'.
Sketch: No Working Title was recorded at the Drill Hall on 20th February 2007.
