Why has Real Radio brought its jingles in-house? Do women and men make different kinds of production? Can you really rebrand a station for just one day and make it successful?¬†So many questions it’s like an Andrew Neill promo.

There’s also a special treat for fans of vintage radio comedy and the sound of children playing Angry Birds in the background. Work-life balance, ok?
