Series 2 of the great spoof radio phone in series from Radio 4. 3CD set, covering all 6 episodes, hosted by "awarding winning" Gary Bellamy, who just about holds it all together. Played just straight enough so that some people thought it was a real phone-in and complained! The eclectic combination of topics callers are invited to comment on include; "War and Chocolate", "Plastic Surgery and Natural Disasters" and "Education and Ghosts"
A host of regular callers from the first series are back, largely voiced by Paul Whitehouse and other "fast show" alumni, and are brilliantly done, as you would expect. Very funny.

i first tuned in after hearing the trailer featuring a character (Harry Enfield) calling in to discuss chocolate, shouting 'shut it' to quieten his interrupting dog. some of the characters are excellent, i have a particular soft spot for the session with a estate agent guest. there are many great details in the callers comments and their often bigoted generalisations all of which serves to make me want to listen to it over again. slight critisism is the old lady characters which really don't seem authentic, and i also made the mistake of playing this to my 11 & 14 yr old children who have ended up repeating some of the more unsavoury characters ('shut it' and the politely spoken lady describing how she passed three dog poos and a vomit on the way to the bank, being particular examples)

I purchased the first one, and of course, this one and I have l have played them on my little cd machine many times. It is difficult to get fed-up with a show so funny. The people on the two shows are a talented bunch. I could say more but, "What is the point?" On the other hand, the "Shut it!" guy and the guy who wants to know, "...why tramps keep shouting at each other all the time?" He can laugh even when he is being cheeked to - a lesson for us all.

If you've ever spent a few weeks, months, years listening to either LBC 97.3 or Talksport Radio this series will strike a cord with you. Where a series will normally lampoon the host, Down The Line not only does that - it lampoons the audience.

Most people that ring into phone in shows are extreme right or left wing, religious nuts or just plain crazy. Sure, we've all listened to a phone in show but when you pick up the phone and dial that number - you cross a sanity line! This is where the Down The Line audience come into effect - a set of characters who would be just as easily placed on The Fast Show (Higson, Day and Whitehouse's TV masterpiece). The host Gary Bellamy bumbles his way through a parade of nitwits and social outcasts. Sterling performances by Higson, Day, Whitehouse and Felix Dexter really capture the tone of modern telephone phone in's.
