John Peel’s Shed By John Osborne (Show And Tell)

By | Published on Friday 31 August 2012

Radio – “part of your downtime but never your conversation” – let alone the focus of the stage. From Radio 1’s millions of regular listeners to the sole window cleaner tuning into a community station, John Osborne immerses his audience in a love affair with the medium that means more to him than background music. Encouraged by a box of records won through a John Peel radio competition, Osborne takes us through his eclectic music tastes and radio stories. His passion and wit, glittering in his eyes and glimmering in every anecdote, ensure hearty belly laughs resonate around the theatre. There’s no doubt this man is a true Radio Head, and it seems his mission is to convert you too.

Underbelly Cowgate, 7-12 Aug, 11.35am.
