The Mourning DJ - A Radio Dramedy

The Mourning DJ - A Radio Dramedy

By Neal Veglio & Citrus Wang

Described as "witty and addictive", this humorous show pokes fun at the fake-smile-filled, and back-stabby world of the British media industry. Follow along with the often amusing and occasionally heart-breaking story of Nick Bellamy - a young British media hopeful - as his path steers him around egomaniacal bosses, slutty and manipulative co-workers, and accusations of chair-sniffing, all in the hope of one day becoming a successful radio DJ; perhaps, even, The Mourning DJ. (The first two seasons have now been archived. Thanks to better equipment and knowledge obtained since the beginning of this series, they're being remastered. They'll be available to listen to again, soon.) If you enjoyed the Ricky Gervais hit "Extras", you'll probably enjoy this.

The Breaks - Episode 19 - The Mourning DJ: A Radio Dramedy

Nick recalls the time he serenaded the lead singer of a well-known Oxford indie band. His flirtation with girl band member Keri Facinelli comes to a head - but not in the way you are probably thinking. His well-intentioned but roughly executed creativity lands him in the middle of yet more drama.
