John Shuttleworth - The Shuttleworths 4
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

John Shuttleworth is a character created by musician Graham Fellows. John Shuttleworth is a fifty-something unemployed D.I.Y. fan living in Sheffield with his wife Mary, his two teenage children Karen and Darren, and his next-door neighbour and sole agent Ken Worthington.

With the help of his Yamaha portable synthesiser, John Shuttleworth writes fabulous pop songs inspired by his daily life. He belongs to Ken Worthington's 'stable of stars'. When John is not writing songs and playing his synth, John likes nothing more than to go to the Garden Centre for his tea.

The inimitable John Shuttleworth brings listeners six episodes of celebrity interviews, dodgy keyboard music, and even dodgier jingles. The series thrives on its good-natured sense of humour, and if the result is less confrontational than a great deal of modern comedy, this has not prevented Shuttleworth from gaining a loyal following amongst discerning listeners.

This CD features Series 4 of the cult comedy series from BBC Radio 4 in which Graham Fellows plays John Shuttleworth, an aspiring songwriter, and all the other members of the Shuttleworth family and their friends. The result is a small, sealed world of closely-knit (and mixed-up) people.
