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.

The show’s gargantuan marketing campaign included a tie-in satirical website, a series of short films, and one-off guerrilla magazine called The MNE.
