This guy is pretty good. Steve Jobs at the Dragons' Den.

There's a feature like this on the hour of slack, no?

The George Alagiah has such perfect diction and delivery that I wouldn't be surprised if he now just has a robot read the night's news while he's sitting under an palapa on an island somewhere. Apple should license it to use as the male English voice of Siri.

Brilliant, that's like good old Parker Tapes-era audio Cassetteboy - hours of material painstakingly whittled down to a brief splurge of terrible, terrible jokes.

My favourite will always be Di and Dodi Do Die (which I can't seem to find online), closely followed by their evisceration of the young Jamie Oliver: 'I don't have many good friends. Good friends, you know, who you can really trust... Retro salad, yeah?'

No, this is CassetteBoy vs The Dragons' Den. And it's funnier than the Steve Jobs bit, I think.

That should earn Cassetteboy the job as London correspondent for Fox News.

The word "seamless" might have better applied were it not for all the seams.

I love this kind of thing, and I'll be spending favorites like a drunken sailor, or Tehloki, on anyone who links to other examples in the comments.

Oh, I like this. Reminds me of Nigella Talks Dirty and Gordon Talks Dirty (both NSFWish).

bicyclefish: Yeah ok there are some seams then. But seriously, if you don't look but just listen, you almost cannot hear them other than in the field reporter sections. It's quite well done in that sense.

"PR Gnus" by Mr. F. Le Mur. There's a whole bunch more on their Archive.org page.

Cassetteboy are wholly responsible for my brother and I cracking up every time we hear The One Show's opening trumpet, as we can't help but picture Adrian Chiles playing it on a saxophone. The Bladdy Apprentice is still the best though.

As the first Youtube comment correctly states: Doing Fox´╗┐ News would be easy, all you have to do is upload an episode. Unedited.

I laughed like a drain. Reminded me of Adam and Joe's No News.

I was gonna post this after checking my youtube feed tonight. For spoken-word audio-collage, I love Cassetteboy, along with Wayne Butane and Fortyone. Hereford Hereford Hereford.
