Best Scripted Radio Programme nominee – National SRA Awards 2007
Konkers is a sitcom demolishing the myth that student life is all hedonism and confidence. Instead, we present a line-up of the lonely, misguided and unfortunate students of Konkerbury. The kind who stay in to finish their essays, who suffer long-distance relationships, and who go to rubbish house parties. One of them talks to no-one but his pet owl.
With an ensemble cast of comedy characters, elaborate stereo sound design, and 30-minute episodes, it was the first programme to enter production for CSRFM, ahead of the station’s launch in January 2007, and brought us to the attention of BBC Radio Kent.
