I Hate Showtime

#1
I listen to R2, 'cos I'm old and knackered, in the morning on the way to work.

I have to turn it off at 0715 when that f*cking showtime comes on.

Who the f*ck likes musicals anyway?

C*nts!

I, like you, listen to R2 for the same reasons. But it is the only bit of that cat shagging hypochondriac walting bitch's show that I actually listen too.

Because usually you can hear the words...........

Hey? What?

You're all a bunch of old bastards. When I listen to Radio 2 I get the same feeling i imagine old people get when they sh't themselves and have to sit in it for hours on end. Terry Wogan just rambles on like the senile knacker he is, Steve Wright belongs at Radio Norfolk or some equally smarmy local radio station and Sarah Kennedy is just barking mad. And as for that bespeckled, talentless ginger cnut, if ever so much as catch site of him I'm going to beat him until he's unrecognisable.

steve Wright is the only really good thing on R 2 I think.
Jonny Walker was pretty good.

I like R4!! I'm not even 'old.' I just love it. Dont really care what's on altho prefer the comedy and world news. Stuff about spakkers (always at lunch time - cant tehy put the Goon Show on or something instead - cheer us up) and deaf people is less attractive to me.
Go digital mate. Listen to BBC 7. Goon show at 12 and again later in the day. Also Navy Lark, Round the Horne, Take it from here, and many others. Brilliant stuff!

Hmm not a bad idea Mr Old Fat and Hairy. Might look into that. Wasn't impressed last time I looked into it.
I'm listening to 'Take it from Here' even now, to be followed by something els, didn't hear the announcement. Then the current serial, which is a Biggles adventure..

Worth it just for that.

Nice to see you keeping your posts brief OFaH!

However I too am a fan of Radio 7. Also Radio 4 and World Service. All available on digital radio. World Service is still the serious current affairs/news speech radio that appears unavailable anywhere else.

Yes. Sorry about the cut and paste. Just wanted to show what is available. R4 and World Service too are excellent.

Actually , I agree with Arby - why the f*ck do I listen to that dried up old slag of a morning? The deranged whore can't even read out the f*cking newspapers properly - she sounds as if she's still suffering from her Mogadon and Cabernet Sauvignon binge from the night before. Either that or the b*stard Temazepans are kicking in. Wrinkle -necked, rancid, insane, stenchbag, tw*t of the hightest order. I'll bet she's got a minge like a bag of salt and vinegar crisps.

I'll put a CD on.....

Only one thing I listen to R2 for - Stuart Maconie. I wish he'd hurry up & do another series of All Singing All Dancing All Night, & while he's at it do more of his Northern request shows like he does on New Years Eve (he used to do a August Bank Holiday one too, but it vanished). The man's a genius. In the same vein Pete Mitchell's not averse to playing Northern tunes too, but he does tend to ramble on a bit. Keep The Faith!

Sarah Kennedy used to have quite a nice rack when she did Game For A Laugh (showing age now), but I bet she tucks them into her belt now & wears a vest. Rumour has it she's fond of a drink too. Allegedly.

I listened to Wogan for ten minutes a while back. He spoke for ages, but he didn't actually say anything. It was an effort to not stab myself in the ears with my screwdriver.

I'm with OFAH. Only bought a digital radio gizmoo thinggie so I could listen to R7. I can even remember hearing the original productions. Marvellous, bloody maaarrrvelous.

As for 'Wotan'... he was cutting edge in 1967 I'll have you know, him Emperor Rosko and that Cliff Richard look-a-like fecker, Kenny Everett et al...... mutter mutter mutter......

Nurse! the zipper's stuck again on me tartan carpet slippers

The classic Jeeves & Wooster with Briars and Hordern sounds good. Might give that listen tomorrow.
