ABOUT THE BRADSHAWS
'The Bradshaws' is a British comedy soapette running continuously on radio for 35 years (and still counting), and featuring the family Bradshaw - Alf, Audrey and little Billy, plus friends and relatives such as Michael Morris, Uncle Wally One-ball, Fleabag the cat and many more.
The Bradshaws comedies shouldn't be confused with the Bradshaw Mountains, a mountain range in central Arizona, USA, which is significantly taller.
The stories, are written, voiced and produced by just one person, Buzz Hawkins, who (staying with the height theme a little longer) is far too small to do all these things on his own. But he does, so ner!
Anyway, instead of us having to type loads of stuff and possibly getting repetitive strain injury, may we suggest that you can learn far more about the Bradshaws by listening to the stories on radio, on CD, online or on your own. You could also learn more by reading the Bradshaws hardback comic book 'The Bradshaws An' All That', but that may involve you buying a copy from our Corner Shop or borrowing one from a more generously-spirited friend - if you have any.
Have a look around our website and you'll find lots of info here too. Or, simply put 'the Bradshaws' or 'Buzz Hawkins' in your favourite search engine and you'll find tons of links - mostly lies, but interesting nevertheless - including, possibly, some poor quality Youtube videos of the 1994 TV series. Don't say you were not warned.
Have fun and see you soon!
The Bradshaws Team
P.S. The project to produce a second series in its original style has now begun!
WHO'S A BUSY B THEN? ...
Buzz is currently working on the first Bradshaws novel and a new series of Bradshaws videos (in the same style as the original Granada TV series), plus a non-Bradshaws novel and .. phew!
But, as he misses you all so much, he's still comes out to play with Billy and his mam and dad (plus his guitar, of course) in venues not far from you. If you can't get there, you can always invite him to perform in your local hall or club (honest!)
CATCHY CHORUSES & DAFT BITS
Featuring Bradshaws songs and sketches, and Buzz's unique comic songs like Sadie,The R aji Singsong, Country Billy Gerkin, Father Fanakerpan and many more
