Award-winning sketch show from the writer of Cabin Pressure and Double Acts. In this episode, the best sound in all of music, and someone asks for a massive favour.

John Finnemore presents another half hour of his award-winning sketch show, joined by his regular ensemble cast of Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Simon Kane, Lawry Lewin and Carrie Quinlan.

This week we hear the best sound in all of music, and someone asking for a massive favour. There's also an inaccurate sketch, but that's alright because John issues a correction and, well, since you ask him a very direct question...

John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme was described by The Radio Times as "the best sketch show in years, on television or radio", and by The Daily Telegraph as "funny enough to make even the surliest cat laugh". Already the winner of a BBC Audio Drama Award and a Radio Academy Silver Award, John was named the 2016 Radio Broadcaster of the Year by the Broadcasting Press Guild for his work on Souvenir Programme.
