In this clip, Tony Martin and Mick Molloy parody the title of the Windows 95 computer operating system, although the sketch is more like a prank on unsuspecting motorists during peak hour – and also features some of Mick Molloy’s trademark yelling. 

Although their on-air banter sounded improvisational, most of their live performances were well prepared.

On the Game Changers: Radio podcast in 2016, Tony Martin explained that, 'people would always come in to see Martin/Molloy being done and they’d think, “This is going to be hilarious” and there’s just two guys sitting there with Spirax notebooks reading things out like they’re doing an old radio play'. 

Although there were elements to the show that were completely improvisational, sketches like this one likely were not.
