Shipping Forecast

How do you feel about the shipping forecast?

Got a favourite region?

don’t mind the forecast, just some mindless mumbling that’s nice to have in the background, but that music they play before it can fuck off.

I like when it’s used at the end of a Rick Stein’s Seafood Lover’s Guide episode.

Feel like Fastnet is the Airbus UK of the shipping regions. Out of place.

I’m glad you’re enjoying it Kermit.

I consider this thread to be moderate, occasionally good.

Fastnet has got my vote. Top notch lighthouse there.

Andy Rushton, I think it was, had the most mesmerising way of pronuncing ‘Nine’, I couldn’t get enough of it. He’d always do the Shipping Forecast during TMS when England were on tour back in about 2005-ish.

that show was formative in why I find football really wearisome in a deep psychological way

Went through a long period of not being able to sleep without the Shipping Forecast on in the background. Love it.
