From the late Vincent Hanna in the evening with Peter Allen and JAne Garvey in the morning
via Fi Glover and Adrian Chiles and Julian Worricker
through Nicky Campbell getting the breakfast show
to Victoria Derbyshire getting the phone-in and pretending to be more blokey than blokes
to Eamonn Holmes taking over the Saturday morning show and removing any news content and making it celebrity filled crap with occasional forays into gambling or Manchester UNited
to Stephen “so what do you think about pole dancing for toddlers?” Nolan
to Richard “Alan Partridge” BAcon late night
to Gabby Logan destroying the news show on a Sunday morning with tales from the bootroom, what sounds like a studio “posse”.
All that stands between FIve Live and my permanent disabling of the channel for news on my radios is Drive, the occasional glimpse of Phil Williams, and John Pienaar at the weekend.
