"

The award-winning satirist reflects on his early days in radio, with some long forgotten sketches from the archives.

Armando is interviewed by Dave Batchelor, who was instrumental in his move to BBC Radio Scotland. He remembers having a hoot, playing with sound effects and hosting a music show called Bite The Wax, with occasionally limited pop knowledge.

He also recalls being sounded out as the host of the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, and the inspiration for future Radio 4 hit On The Hour.

First broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland in 2006.
