Did anyone happen to be listening to Mark Steel's In Town last night on Radio 4 (2nd June 201)?

If you've never heard it before, Mark Steel goes to different towns and does a stand up comedy show specific to that town.

Last night he was in Shrewsbury, and it's worth a listen.

No doubt it will bring back memories (how do you pronounce it? ShrOSbury or ShrEWsbury) and the Tythe Barn in the college grounds even gets referenced, although somewhat indirectly.

Here's a link to the online stream which will only work to the 2nd July 2015.
