Radio career

Bob Mills presented his own weekday programme in the 1990s on Greater London Radio from 10pm to 1am, where he would impress with his wit and dexterity. This was during the period when other comedians also had their own programmes on GLR such as Mark Lamarr and Phill Jupitus. Bob's feature of 'Veneer of the Week' was inspired by his driving along the North Circular Road and seeing the sign on Shadbolts, the veneer sellers, advertising their latest offering. He thought that this had to be brought to public attention. He indulged himself in the last ten minutes of his show by playing music by Elvis Presley.
