Here’s a link to an article that appeared today on the UK’s biggest comedy website, Chortle, about 12 hidden comedy gems from the Resonance FM archive. I’m pleased to write my most recent work for Resonance, The Café Chronicles, is listed in the 12. You can of course find the complete 10-part first series of the show on this website as well as the hour-long Christmas Eve special.
Airing on Christmas Eve, 8pm on Resonance 104.4fm.
(Repeated Boxing Day, 12pm)
Daniel Ruiz Tizon returns with a Christmas Eve special of The Café Chronicles from the South Lambeth Portuguese café he has holed himself up in since the summer of 2001. As the gentrification sweeping through Nine Elms and Vauxhall accelerates, The Café Chronicles documents the characters and community threatened by these changes. This packed festive edition features chin fissures, cartoon flattened pastries, leviathan eclairs, hairy chested waiters in open necked shirts shedding chest hair in customers coffees, and Old Twitter, the octogenarian couple with their newspapers breaking yesterday’s news today. And Daniel looks back at an old Christmas exchange with a café regular that kick-started the erosion of his long-prized anonymity in the café.
Here’s my guest appearance on today’s Bibi Does Soho with Bibi Lynch on Soho Radio. We talked about The Café Chronicles and the upcoming hour-long Christmas Eve special on Resonance FM, and I fulfilled a lifelong dream of getting an obscure Tears For Fears track played live on air.
From Monday 6 August at 10am, repeated at 6:30pm, and running every weekday until Friday 17 August, I'll be presenting daily 5-minute missives from the South Lambeth Portuguese café I've holed myself up in since the summer of 2001. As the gentrification sweeping through Nine Elms and Vauxhall accelerates, The Café Chronicles documents the characters and community threatened by these changes.
It’s a world of tobacco, discarded chicken bones, faded denim, easily slighted personalities, exaggerated Mediterranean gesticulations and coffee, the glue that holds the old community together and you can hear the 10-part series only on Resonance 104.4 FM.
The show's 10 episodes will also be repeated as a 50-minute Omnibus edition at 10am on Sunday 19 August.
Daniel Ruiz Tizon, a man on his fifth nose, is, he’d like the world to know, Available, and dissecting the minutiae of everyday life.
