Things that have made you switch the radio off recently (rolling)


#1

The bit at the start of Radcliffe and Maconie’s show where they say: “You know what you want to do with that, right? You want to put a banging donk on it” … combined with the intro to King Of The Kerb by Echobelly. Couldn’t stand it - radio is now off.

For information, the song to which they’re referring is from eight years ago.


#2

Keaveney


#3

the shite music usually


#4

never, ever listen to the radio. Why would you? just put on spotify or cd idk


#5

Specifically - “Middle-aged shout-outs” - referencing, what, Tim Westwood? So, maybe a mid-late 90s reference?


#6

That new ed sheering I number that sounds like shut tier u2


#7

Sometimes they play a variety of music that my colleagues and I quite like. Seems democratic.


#8

Are you drunk already, Yosemite Duck?


#9

Apologies to yer man but the only consistent thing is Kate Tempest. Just can’t do it.


#10

Not sure if this still happens, but days gone by the emergency transmission would kick in after so many seconds of silence. It once happened to Mogwai, I believe, and I think the 17 seconds at the start of Renegade would do the trick.


#11

honestly whever Lamacq comes on. I quite enjoy Keaveney, Laverne and Radmac.


#12

the second day in a row of brexit related phone in on Five live with Nicky Campbell.


#13

i think it happened during one of low’s peel sessions at well


#14

You don’t have a problem with Echobelly though? (except for maybe the pain of nostalgia)


#15

They’re… okay? Classic middleweight Britpop.


#16

they’re dead catchy too

I turned Elvis Costello off the TV the other day, god he’s boring.
I think I might’ve turned off Tom Robinson’s show the other day.
I don’t think I could listen to radcliffe and maconie now, despite sticking up for radcliffe on here.
Archers: always
