Listen in, listen Ian!
I went to the BBC website just now, and the radio bit of home page offered me a listen again link to George Lamb on 6 Music. "Ooh," I thought, "that's that bloke everyone's always complaining about isn't it? Perhaps I should have a quick listen to see what the fuss is about."|
Christ, what a cvnt.
I saw a trailer for him on the telly and thought precisely the same thing. I hadn't realised lots of people had been complaining about him, but it doesn't surprise me at all.
If that's the guy in the TV adverts which end with him saying "Shabba!" in a HILARIOUSLY IRONIC way, then yes, he must die.
yes, yes it is him. BRING BAACK GIDEON!!!
Exactly. I for one would never condone the sudden replacement of friendly and knowledgeable radio hosts with drunken-sounding idiots spouting incessant in-jokes.
Not heard of him. I'm torn, should I also now check out the link? Hm.
Ahhhh! We listened to him every day for the first two weeks I worked in the office, until our grumbling was finally noted. I wouldn't mind him so much if he didn't have precisely two catchphrases and repeat them endlessly. As it is, Jo and I are planning a march on 6 Music to slap him about the face and lock him in a cupboard.
Yes, having a likable chap on who genially chatted about nothing special but obviously liked his music was too 'blokey', apparently. So it's all the fault of women.
Saw a trailer for his show just before tonight's A2A; it's no coincidence that Lamb is yet another floppy-haired foppish mockney stage-school twunt cut from the same cloth as Fielding and Brand. Kill.

I can't help thinking that Chris Evans has a lot to answer for.
God his show is terrible, bring back Gideon! You know that he knows his show is terrible though, cos every 5 minutes he has to remind you that people tell him they enjoy the show...
That's a little unfair. He also mentions the people (and web ::yawn:: petition. Jesus, how much spare time do people have these days?) who are very much against him.
I don't think Gideon Coe could be 'brought back' as he left of his own volition*. Switching to late nights synchronises with his weekend show on the actually_listened_to Radio 2. A smart career move.
*Of course this may all be balls. It's Gin Night in these parts.
