Brentwood, 2.07pm: 15°C, broken clouds

Chris Stagg

I joined the Phoenix FM team in September 2014. You can hear me every week on my 90s radio show, TFI90s, between 6pm and 8pm on Thursdays. I also have an arts and culture podcast called Words & Sound, with guests, reviews and interviews.

I'm a freelance writer and illustrator; I enjoy writing fiction and I'm a great lover of comedy and darker elements of the craft. You can find my personal website at
