I Swear I'm Not Doing A Bit is a new radio comedy panel show on Cam FM themed around events that didn't happen, things that don’t make sense and items that don’t exist. Have we all lost our mind over the past few months? This show dares to say “yes, absolutely, we 100% have!” Tune in for the classic people-telling-jokes setup, but instead of professional comedians we have startled undergrads.
The show will air during Michaelmas Term 2020, 6pm every Friday from 09/10 to 13/11. Episodes will be available to listen on demand on CamFM.co.uk for a month after initial broadcast.

Aubrey is a reclusive, misanthropic estate agent who lives in a one-bedroom flat. She is professionally Unhappy. Aubrey’s twin sister Emily is an out-of-work actress with an unhealthy amount of time on her hands. For the time being, she is professional Nothing. Though having shared an organ or two in the womb, the twins’ lives have taken largely dissimilar (but equally disillusioning) routes over the course of thirty-nine years. A couple of years on from the death of their darling Grandmother (and only known relative), each is still figuring out what it means to be both one’s own person and a part of someone else. When Emily comes running to Aubrey with tales of their Grandmother’s house having been flooded, Aubrey has no option but to let her sister back into her life, even if that means both their personalities being subsumed under the stress of cohabitance. My Aubrey, My Emily is a tragicomedy told from two sides. It is about sisterhood, loss, loneliness, deception, familial love, and a donkey.
My Aubrey, My Emily is a radio-play on student radio station Cam FM

In the summer of 1975, Violet Warner and Steven Brown, investigators of the paranormal, arrive with their tape recorder to find out what exactly happened at Willow House the year before. But as they go about their investigation, something begins to bother Violet. The stories themselves seem to be haunted by the spectre of the houseowner’s wife, who apparently left him for another man. But no one knows where she went. These are Violet’s recordings: interviews, investigations, notes and fixations upon Willow House’s true spectre: Louise Chalmers.

'I think what always struck me in Picasso’s ‘Girl Before A Mirror’, what lingers in my mind when I picture it now, is the pink. Half of her face is pink, her breasts are pink, and her swollen stomach. There’s a peculiar withdrawal about this pink, it seems to pull itself away from you, suck you into the page but leave you with a curious sense of emptiness. There’s something decidedly innocent about this pink, and I feel it even now. Picasso spares our innocence in this painting, and he does it through the pink.'
‘Through Dark Eyes’ follows Hester, a blind history of art teacher, through her newfound friendship with the student Grace, as they navigate a world led by sound, smell, and the feeling of colour. But as time goes by and the two become closer and closer, something darker rises to the surface and this unlikely friendship threatens to shatter at any moment.
'Through Dark Eyes' is a radio play produced by Cambridge student-radio Cam FM.

‘Welcome fellow truthers - this is The Truth Is Out Where? With Bonnie and Clive’ In the northern town of Crampton, amateur investigators Bonnie and Clive are on a mission to crack a conspiracy wide open. Although, when everything seems a lie, it makes your daily work in pest control pretty heavy-going. They may be a laughing stock, but will the town still be laughing when it’s up to the duo to uncover a real-life plot? Because something not quite right is lurking under Crampton’s surface – and it’s more than just a moderate rat problem.
'Bonnie and Clive' is a radio play produced by Cambridge student-radio Cam FM.
