Radio and television presenter, musician, writer, friend of the stars and all round cheese fetishist Mark Radcliffe has been making a little go a long way for several decades now.

His success story includes his Radio 1 partnership with former Fall guitarist Marc Riley, the pair working together at the station for 14 years under the moniker Mark and Lard.

In 2004, Radcliffe joined BBC Radio 2. He presents the weekly programme The Folk Show for Radio 2 and co-hosts Radcliffe & Maconie with Stuart Maconie for BBC Radio 6 Music,

He’ll have plenty of stories to share when he brings his solo show to The Fishpond, Matlock Bath on December 3.

Expect songs of middle -aged angst and ennui along with tales of ineptitude and encounters with some of music’s most famous names who he has on speed dial. Even if his calls are blocked at the other end! He’s finally run out of friends and so now has no choice but to go it alone.

Tickets are £8 in advance, £10 on the door, available via the Fishpond website or by calling 01629 55006.
