Radio show  
If you don't follow Matt on twitter, he posted this last week:

@porksmith: Got my own show on Absolute Radio (Virgin) as from 12th July 8-10pm Gawd help you x

Looks like they have a DJ page up for him now:

Still unsure as to whether or not this is an actual gig or a one-time thing, though the above page only seems to mention 'this Sunday.'

Bonus: The schedule page says the show will be on webcam(!) as well as "Call Matt on 0330 123 1215 (national rate), email via the website at absoluteradio.co.uk, or text 81215 (50p + n/wk chrg)."

I've made a couple of posts elsewhere asking if anyone is able to capture the show as I won't have a chance to get online and listen at the time. If I get a copy, I'll share :)

He's one of the few people I will never mute or unfollow on Twitter.

It could be a sort of test to see if it works before committing to any kind of ongoing thing (and filling in someone else's slot would be a good way to test the waters). If it's a disaster, then obviously it won't be repeated. If not, who knows?

But he does say "as from", which suggests it's not just a one-off. Hm. Have you tried asking?

Yeah, that's the weird thing. The twitter post says "from Sunday," everything else I can find says "this Sunday."

I've tried replying to Matt on twitter a couple of times (on different subjects, but he apparently doesn't bother with that (or can't figure it out, I really don't know).

Haven't tried e-mailing the radio station yet, though.

Aaaaah, just saw this reply to my thread on the same subject at the Snuff Box forum:
"I caught the last 10 minutes of Geoffs show on Sunday night, he said said Matt will be covering for him while he's on holiday for two weeks. Who knows, if he's good enough he may get his own regular slot, I've seen it happen before."

Ah. Mind you, that would be a nice tricksy way to get people listening. Have Matt Berry take over when someone goes on holiday.

(I had a DM from him recently, so he has at least started to reply on the odd occasion, just not with the usual @replies. He probably gets a few tweets though, and I got lucky.

There's also that he might not want to mention it until he finds out how the first one went.)
