Raise the Oof

Radio 4 favourite and comedy legend John Shuttleworth is back with more hilarious stories and songs performed on his trusty Yamaha organ (with built-in auto accompaniment!).

In Raise The Oof John celebrates 40 years in showbiz. “Actually, I feel rather calm” muses John, “although after forty years and still no chart success, perhaps I should be slightly anxious. My wife Mary says I should get a proper job, but there's not time - I'm about to retire! Besides, Comet - where I used to demonstrate audio equipment - no longer exists. As for the sweet factory in the Rotherham area where I worked as a security guard in the 1980's - that’s now an Axe Throwing Centre. Oof!"

But he's still posting off his songs (on cassette tape with Dolby so it's not too hissy) to cutting edge pop acts like Chris Rea and the Lighthouse Family, plus he's still being booked for nostalgic singalongs at the local hospice (for petrol money only) so he has every reason to celebrate his long and illustrious career. Do come along and join John in punching the air, and helping - in an orderly and controlled fashion - to Raise The Oof!
