LBC 97.3 General Chit-Chat

I can't find a general LBC thread so I thought i'd start one. I listen to LBC a lot and have done so for many years. I used to post in a similar thread over on DS and, as is the norm, was in the minority with my opinions about some of the shite presenters on LBC.

Anyway, I think James Max is great. I've liked his presentation style for many years now but he does seem to struggle to do serious topics. That's probably a directive from LBC management but I think they should let him stick to more fun topics which suits his natural style more.

I also think James Whale is brilliant. talkSPORT lost a great presenter and it's LBC's gain. He is less of a shock-jock on LBC now and that's a shame. But I think he's more concerned about his job so toes the line more often now.

I think Simon Caulder's Travel Clinic is brilliant.

However, I have a long list of presenter's who are shite in my opinion:

Steve Allen - he doesn't care about the Z-listers he slags off every day, but devotes his entire life and show to Z-listers.

Nick Ferrari - preys on thick and gullible people by tugging at their heartstrings with false emotional bollocks.

Ken "When I was Mayor" Livingstone - spends three hours every Saturday slagging off Boris Johnson and promoting his Mayoral campaign. A sore loser indeed.

James O'Brien - a right-wing chamgane socialist and rabble-rouser.

Jeni Barnett - focuses far too much on her religion and this causes her show to become one aimed at her promoting her religion. She could do much better by broadening her topics out a bit.

Petrie Hosken - the female version of Nick Ferrari.

Cluve Bull - An okay show but struggles to talk about serious topics as he's out of his depth on politics and current affaris.

Bill Buckley - great presenter.

Nick Abbot - the most boring presenter on LBC. Thank goodness he's been demoted to a weekend slot. Obsessed with drugs and Dubai!

Andrew Pierce - Another rabble-rouser. Gutter-press tabloid journalism of the worst kind.

Cristo Foufas - LBC's show for thick people.

Anthony Davis - 'H' should stick to Jazz FM.

I will never be owned.

Dire, predictable, boring are the words for most LBC presenters. So predictable - yawn - you know what they are going to say about any subject before they say it. Most would find a slot on Radio Daily Mail, if such a thing existed.

The only stars they have are Ken L and Nick Abbot, who both - in different ways - rise about the dross and make the station occasionally listenable.

Never forget the iron law of unintended consequences

Ah, our Evening Standard restaurant guide, Ken of Toad Hall.

Never really given a full explanation over those rather expensive bottles of wine found behind a false wall at his palace once he was desposed by the London electorate, has he.

Mind you people are still finding stuff over the Stratford property connection and those railway arch evictions, (how conveniently) just before the London Olympic bid, nothing to do with our little 'socialite' of course.

I remember you used to criticise Steve, but praise a dire presenter and crook like Tre Azam who got the sack from LBC!

Yes, I thought Tre Azam was great. Steve Allen talks shite all of the time. I guess his audience is elderly, largely uneducated and a bunch of Little Englanders.

Give Tweetypie25 my regards

She spent about 6 months refuting Katona and the coke habit, to the point where she started threatening libel over some court documents over a lie detector test, which I suppose could now be brought up again.

The excellent Max has a four-hour show today! Awesome! And we get a healthy dose of James Whale too. That's after the dross of Steve Allen and Andrew Pierce.

The Andrew Pierce show is quite interesting. He'll come up with a tabloid headline to appeal to the hard-of-intellect. Today he is stating that prisoners get more spent of food than sick people in hospitals do. One of the people who did the research into this corrected him somewhat. The truth of the story is that the same amount of money is spent more efficiently in the prison service. That's a totally different story. But, of course, that doesn't generate the same tabloid headline to rouse the rabble.

Sad news. Bill has just announced his last broadcast will be on Wednesday morning. He says because he can't doo nights anymore, but I suspect it is more to do with the way JR has treated him. :(:

^ I just caught that last night too. Sad news indeed. Bill Buckley is a genuinely nice bloke, a great presenter and will be a sad loss.

Anyone missing Bill can hear him sitting in for Jonathan Lampon on Monday morning between 02:00-06.00? on BBC Radio London and you can catch up with his excellent programme from Friday (also covering for Jonathan) on BBC I-Player! :)
