Radio Yorkshire, which last week got its first RAJAR at 71,000 weekly listeners, has a new comedy show for 2015.
The Ross and Josh Show started this week with a Bank Holiday Special between 12pm and 3pm on Monday. The programme will then run every Saturday morning and Sunday evening from the weekend of June 6th.
The show is presented by comedians Ross Brierley and Josh Sadler who have built up a following around Leeds and the rest of Yorkshire as stand ups and with their “The Not So Late Show”.
Ross says: “The show will be bringing red hot chat, special guests and generally daft behaviour to Radio Yorkshire and we’ll be enjoying every second. Our experience in the world of stand-up comedy and our live talk show will hopefully stand us in good stead when it comes to spouting hilarious nonsense on a Saturday morning.
“We hope to bring the spirit of chaos from our live shows to the airwaves and some wonderful guests on the show, including our good friend Baby John, and a healthy smattering of the North’s finest stand-up comedians.”
Josh added: “You need 400g of self raising flour, two tablespoons of baking soda and …. sorry, what was this for again? I’ll be channelling my broadcasting hero, Italian TV Chef Gennaro Contaldo as best I can and …. you know, that sort of stuff.”
Radio Yorkshire’s Director of Broadcasting Sam Brydges said: “A move into radio comedy is something we’ve been thinking about for a while. Ross and Josh’s brand of humour will be perfect for our audience. I laughed anyway.”
