BBC 4 did a special on Bill Mitchell a few years ago. This is a recording of that special in which we learn more about Bill Mitchell's career.
Back in 1988/1989, Capital Radio wanted to refresh their "idents".
Originally done by Bill Mitchell in 1978/1979, he goes back into the studio to record more in 1989.
These are the raw studio tapes that contain Bill's many bloopers, and show off his comedic talent.
In the control room on this day was Dave Simons, and you can hear him chiming in every now and then.
