Eric and Gripper, BBC Radio 1
The cult stories of Eric and Gripper set in a Wiltshire village were broadcast on UK BBC Radio 1′s Weekend Breakfast and Weekend Mid Mornings between 1994 and 1997.
Referenced in a Divine Comedy song, “Eric The Gardener” in 1998, Eric and Gripper were surprising and subversive interludes in the BBC Radio 1 pop sequence format of the time. Eric’s dog, Gripper would bark to be let out - just when the story got interesting – breaking the tale into two sections, allowing presenter Kevin Greening to play a song in the gap. Most of the 125 stories - written and performed by Andrew McGibbon – will all be available for download.
