More or less once a week, you can hear Chris on South Wales ONE (formerly ACJ Radio) on the Soundclash. This show is syndicated worldwide with an audience as far away as Australia! (This is a late-night show and so probably not suitable for younger fans!)

When Chris isn't working he's probably cooking, messing about with hypnotism, helping out at Cardiff 61st Scout Group, or just making a general nuisance of himself.
