As the end steadily approaches for our little show, what more is there to say that hasn’t already been said? Probably not, “you’ve inspired me to do radio,” or ”Oscar, could you look after my kids”. With only two more shows to go until we resign ourselves to the whispers of history, we decided to bring back all the old features for a last two-part reunion, including the highly successful ”silence” and “more music”. Three hours, four Yorkies and one f-bomb later it was all over, leaving us with only one show left before we’re finished for good, a life-defining moment that we’ve handled in very different ways. I haven’t cried so much since the last time I watched Gladiator. Oscar hasn’t smiled so much since he managed to twist my bollocks right round with his bare hands, which he did the last time we watched Gladiator. The only problem now is knowing what to do with him once the show’s finished, as I can’t decide whether to put him down or have him returned to the wild. It’s a shame, because London zoo would take him back again if only he’d learn to stop harassing the chimps.
This week: All the features return for an extra-length special; mad uncles, buff gorillas, Mugabe’s little secret and Benny the pig returns to help solve a murder mystery.

I turned round halfway through Kasabian to find Oscar putting his four minutes to good use:
Other than this there’s very little on his CV.
