Nothing to Do with a Writers' Commentary - Part 2

5/4/2020
In the second of two programmes recorded on March 1st, above-the-title talent John Dredge and his co-writer / producer Richard Cray wobble on about the making of Series 5 of the Nothing to Do with Anything Show, pretty much giving away all the secrets. Why not take them all down in a notebook, arrange some time at your friend Ben’s studio, copy the show verbatim and get a series on Radio 4 well before they do? They won’t hold it against you. Much. Today’s big questions (thankfully without...

Nothing to Do with a Writers' Commentary - Part 1

5/3/2020
Enjoyed the fifth series of the John Dredge Nothing to Do with Anything Show at British Comedy Guide? Eager for more? Well, here’s the next best thing. On March 1st, John and co-writer / producer Richard Cray sat in a couple of very comfortable armchairs and waffled away for several hours when they should have been quality checking the episodes. Thankfully, this was covered for posterity – and possibly as a warning for future generations. Among the burning questions answered (sort of) in...

The John Dredge Nothing to Do with Anything Show: Series 2, Programme 6

1/6/2013
Lo, we find ourselves at the end of another season of nutty audio raves from John Dredge and his heavily-coerced team of Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft until such a time as they are prepared to go “boing” in the same room as each other again. But never fear, odd listener, for they go out in fine style with an appearance from the latest in extra-terrestrial specimens – and all for the price of a single Green Shield stamp. Now, there's value, value fans! Plus...

12/30/2012
John Dredge says goodbye to 2012, also known as the Chinese Year of the Accoutrement, with yet another one of those crazy end-of-year round-ups of the year’s most shocking household implements. There will also be odd noises of all shapes and sizes, plus an argy-bargy of aquatic goodies including the sound of a very large splash, courtesy of our friends at Thames Water. All this, plus Leighton Buzzard in Color - whoopee! With Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft.

12/23/2012
The omnipresent John Dredge returns – or does he? Some say he’s never been away - but tune in to find out anyway. Listeners in New Malden should take note that our roadshow team of one is also in the area, so please stand well back and allow her to pass along Coombe Road unhindered. Also this week: Who's behind the cartoon door? Is it Lord Hailsham? Or is it Richard Cray, Mark Davison, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft? It's difficult to tell in this light.

In this week's edition, sideboards rule the roost and there's cubes a-plenty when Reigate comes into the picture - yet all is not as it seems (observe the conundrum as our theme tune is marched straight out of the studio). Pop personalities and phone-ins galore are also very much in short supply tonight, so grab your armchairs and await further instructions / know-how.
