  3. just hit 'load more' at the bottom I think.

    Welcome back, Uncle Norrie, hope you had a grrreeeayyyt time.

    Uncle Vic has been a big disappointment; he's had his chance now. Just check the playlists. I gave up listening after Tuesday. I can't be doing with the endless reading out of what folk asked for that they're not going to play. It's so patronising.

      Should anyone need help with Tuesday's theme.....

      A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea. Whatever exists, we assume, can be named, and that name is a noun.

    2. The best part of the golf is Peter Alliss's commentary.

    3. He's getting really grumpy in his old age though.
      He's not a relative is he?

    Re: Wednesday

    Does "songs with messages" mean songs about buying groceries?


    Never mind. Rhona Cameron, 18:30 BBC Radio4 followed by Mike Harding, 19:00 BBC Radio2 will ensure I do not have to endure Sting wailing. Again.

  10. Welcome back Norrie. :-)
    Been catching up as I too am just back but from the Queen's But an' Ben! No surprise re wee Vic's performance... playlists are now so dull it must be like a weeks paid leave for those involved. Anyhow, want a laugh? Enrique Aloha sent me a friend request on Wednesday... which turned out to be an "in" to my Wall! Sorry Adam, Glen but you've got to keep your friends close but your enemies closer. As if scripted a post questioning my negativity & suggestion to move elsewhere appeared ;-). I asked Enrique if he was the GIO attack hound to which he called me a useless troll and in true Father Jack style to Feck Off before blocking me LOL!

    The point is... even his ability to insult is as weak as his ability to Comprehend an original suggestion for the show ;-)

    Keep up the good fight comrades!

    1. I think that may not be his real name. Stay vigilant.

      My four Facebook friends have now dwindled to three.

  11. negativity? It's our positivity that seems to be the problem - we've suggested pure hunners of great songs and original themes; we've done our damndest to make the show something worth listening to and it's all been rejected and we've been ejected. That's negative alright.

    Band names that are nouns? This and that? crying songs? Oh aye, crying. They should be, they've taken a great idea and dumbed it down to an endless repetition of about 20 songs, and themes that maybe came out a primary school jotter, they sure as hell didn't come from ours.

    1. Not much I do is clever apparently, neither sarcasm nor swearing. Perhaps silence should be my next attempt to impress.

    2. A short pause followed by a longer one, the two so close together as to be indistinguishable.
