It was a fast-paced, fully-loaded bandolier of character comedy that brought such man-weapons as Coach Coach, MasterMind, Daniel Day Lewis, The Drifter and Cube-Voice Guy, plus live music and improvisation from whoever happened to be sat on the front row. Following the pilot, there were two series each focusing on a different character.

The first Chai Tea Radio Show of 2008 starts off with the kind of stuff that should be played at a folk dance and embraces 1980s video gaming freaks. A trainspotter is interviewed rather intermittently because he chases after a freight engine every time one goes past. The Oystar band pop up to be profiled and discuss their no. 25 chart hit 'I Fought The Lloyds', a song you should play loudly if your bank has ever screwed you over. King & Wong return as King Wong. Best band name this year....
