As a former breakfast radio DJ on BBC 6 Music and team captain on the veteran music panel show Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Phill Jupitus has access to some of Britain's brightest and best loved DJs and stations-from Terry Wogan to Chris Moyles, Johnny Vaughan to Tony Blackburn, Heart and Capital to BBC Radio 1, and the R4's Today show. He'll start with the biggest DJs and most listened to shows in the country and take us on an eye-opening journey through the the teams of people who make the mornings, how they do it and more importantly why the nation loves breakfast radio, in spite of the increasing number of alternative forms of entertainment. Phill also enters the surprisingly cut-throat world of breakfast shows on local and even hospital radio, learning to understand the importance of the most listened to show for these stations. The playlists, the controllers, the jingles, the jokes, the breakfast DJ as "celebrity"-all of this is here making for a mischievous and revealing romp through the shows the UK wakes up to every day.
