Alan Partridge set to return

A-ha! Radio Norwich’s greatest DJ is set to return to his beloved public later in November, although he won’t be on the television.

Instead, Partridge has teamed with beer brand Fosters to bring his Mid Morning Matters show to the internet, via Fosters Funny.

“That it has taken Foster’s to help realise my dream of joining the information superhighway is a damning indictment of the established broadcasters whose shabby treatment of me on Sept 10th 2001 was frankly shabby. I made dozens of calls the next day, all of which were ignored,” said Partridge.

“My appreciation must go to Armando Iannucci and Baby Cow for ignoring the lies, god bless them. In the meantime I look forward to “hanging out ‘n’ chillin” with the MySpace generation,” he added.

While you’re waiting to hear Partridge’s silky voice once again, why not enjoy some of his more classic moments?




“Before we all sink into a slough of digital dystopian despair, it might be worth considering this: is this a sign of the strength, not weakness, of revelatory journalism in the digital age?”
