This is a simple game.

What you have to do, it take an existing Radio 4 show, remove one letter from the title, get something with some degree of meaning, and explain what the new show is about. Here follows my own list of suggestions (Word in brackets is the original):

Afternoon Lay (Play) - Where everyone turns the radio off and finds something else to do (Not mine, Clive Anderson read this one out on air, and started me off on this idea)

File o Four (on) - Clip show

Lick on (Click) - Sex show

Font Row (Front) (Row here as in an argument, the original as as in a column) - Arguments over what to call the baby

Material Word (World) - Studying the origins of words

In Our Tim (Time) - Another sex show

Money Ox (Box) - Farming show

Other ideas welcome

The Archer (The Archers) - Widely-despised soap opera about Robin Hood.

A Good Red (A Good Read) - Radio's only fashion-advice program.

Book-Cub (Bookclub) - Kids review children's books.

Lose Ends (Loose Ends) - Clive Anderson presents the show where panelists attempt to untangle knots in Christmas-tree lights.

The No Show (The Now Show) - Helping addicts kick their habits since 1989.

I could go on, but I have to move house. Eek!
