First-time listeners to Mark and Lard's show (BBC Radio One, Monday-Friday, 2pm) will probably be baffled, and wonder what the hell the two cheeky Northerners are on (about). But stick with it for a few days, and soon you'll be unable to tear yourself away from their unique brand of humour. They even manage to cunningly slag off Radio One's currently dance-heavy output without getting themselves in trouble with the bosses.

The skits which the duo have performed over the last year are hilarious - from phone-in quizzes such as Chalk & Cheese, The Spice Is Right and Family Fortune Cookies to their "pretend quiz" sketches Mystery Voice and Beat The Clock. The celebrated Cheesily Cheerful Chart Challenge and Fat Harry White (Mark uses an effect to make his voice deep and does double entendres) segments are great fun as well. Every day its the same thing, but it's always chucklesome. Occasional segments include the very funny Lard's Animal Sanctuary and the Nostalgia Spots. You can even phone in or e-mither (e-mail) a request for a patented Lard "mustn't grumble", "no neeeeed" or "biggidy biggidy bong". To cap it all off, every so often they even have studio guests, such as the lads from The League Of Gentlemen.

If you like the show, you may be interested to know that Mark & Lard are members of the mighty Horse - The Shirehorses - and have released an album with them. Titled "The Worst Album In The World...Ever!", it features spoof of popular tunes, such as TaLa by Peela Tater (Kula Shaker's Tattva), Gazeebo's Lardy Boy (Placebo - Nancy Boy) and The Frank Spencer Blues Explosion, plus many more!
