This week sees the final epsiode of the first series of John Dredge’s Nothing To Do With Anything Show. Today’s indie comedy special includes the brand new single by Fractious Nit and a chat with pop twinnock Rex Twix.

The music mayhem continues with Madonna and Morrissey (shown above wearing masks of each other in a jolly little jape) arguing in the kitchen, and there’s another mention of New Malden and the odd uncanny reference to….. steam engines.

Not only that but John is still on the look out for people to take part in the Get in the Sideboard with a Crazed Lion feature, so do get in touch. Read More

If that wasn’t enough we’ll be relating the the ongoing adventures of Basil the Cylinder, the answers to last week’s holdall-based quiz, and a whole host of absolutely amazing things which have also completely slipped our minds. Read More

After a short respite, podcaster extraordinaire John Dredge does a Marty McFly as we couldn’t leave you empty handed. If you haven’t already hopped into the DeLorean with John here’s the very first episode of The John Dredge Nothing To Do With Anything Show.

Todays bumper edition features Frinton TV’s Twig Harper presenting the first of a brief 200-part series one thing of another. Hard to specify really.

Ever wonder how to act should a bowler hat be catapulted as you from a cannon? This podcast is for you.

All this and a genuine policeman in this selection of audio accoutrements, all presented by string consultant and tuner of banjos to the Royal Family, Mr. John Dredge

John Dredge Interview: “Make sure your podcast includes deer!”

February 26, 2013 | Howard Gorman

John Dredge has been providing readers (and listeners) of Comedy Chords with his insane take on the world via the zany comedy podcast series ‘John Dredge’s Nothing To Do With Anything Show’. This bizarre blend of weird skits, surreal spoofs and frighteningly fractured features has already been compared to the likes of The Mighty Boosh and Kenny Everett, featuring as Radio Times podcast of the week and praised by the both Chortle, Metro and erm, Comedy Chords.

THE JOHN DREDGE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SHOW – SERIES 2, PROG 6

February 19, 2013 | Howard Gorman

Lo and behold, sadly we have reached the climax of the latest series of zany audio raves from John Dredge and his heavily-coerced outfit made up of James Shakeshaft, Richard Cray, Greg Haiste, and Anna Emerson. What a ride it’s been with the podcast praised by the likes of the Radio Times (see above) and Chortle stating it’s what “Kenny Everett would be doing if he was alive today.”

There’s no time to fret though as they leave the building in fine style with the latest in extra-terrestrial specimens putting in a guest appearace and all this for the price of a single Green Shield stamp.

There’s also a suprise appearance from none other than David Lynch. (Oh, damn – I’ve just gone and spoilt it.)

Fear not though, this is by no means the end of John Dredge’s manic fifteen minute show. Word has it there’ll be more shennanigans in the very near future and we’ve still got series one to keep you going until then. Also, watch this space as we’ll be asking John just what’s in store right round the corner.

February 12, 2013 | Howard Gorman

John Dredge bids farewell to 2012 in this weeks podcast. It was also known as the Chinese Year of the Accoutrement, with yet another one of those bizarre New Year round-ups of the year’s most shocking household implements.

This week also features odd noises of all shapes and sizes, plus an argy-bargy of aquatic treasures including the sound of an extremely large splash, courtesy of our friends at Thames Water.

If these soundscapes weren’t enough we’ve even got Leighton Buzzard in Color – whoopee!

Appearances are also made by Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft.

UPDATE:

SPECIAL GOOD NEWS FROM JOHN THIS WEEK. The Radio Times has only gone and chosen the Nothing to do With Anything Show as podcast of the week. Read all about it in this week’s issue, out today!
