Shuttleworths, Vol. 4. Chicken UK 8. CD.
The Shuttleworths was a comedy show that aired for four series on BBC Radio 4. It featured "versatile singer/songwriter from Sheffield, South Yorkshire" John Shuttleworth, his wife Mary, their two teenage children Darren and Karen, neighbour Ken Worthington and a host of other minor characters. All parts were voiced by comedian Graham Fellows.
The humour of John Shuttleworth is gentle and observational, bearing comparison to the work of Alan Bennett, being similarly rooted in a Northern English perspective. Although John is clearly never going to be a star, we are not invited to mock him, more to identify with him and his hopes and dreams. His songs, though unlikely to top the charts when covered by Clannad or Paul Young, as John perennially hopes, are nonetheless whimsical and clever beyond his understanding.

Shuttleworth was initially confined to home-produced tapes that were only circulated among Fellows' friends (some of these tracks later compiled on 'Blue John') but he gradually became more mainstream, with appearances on Radio 4 ('The Shuttleworths' series), Radio 1 ('Shuttleworth Showtime') and on Jonathan Ross's 'Saturday Zoo' on Channel 4, eventually progressing to his own TV shows ('500 Bus Stops', 'Europigeon').
