Radio Live (barely)


The problem with Radio Live (in my humble opinion) is that there was an expectation that it would be a counter to Talkback ZB – the home of red necked NZ (Christ isn’t Leighton Smith pompous arsehole). Problem is Radio Live is right wing lite – why go for the diet beer when you can have the full bodied version on ZB? Radio Live needed to have a strong liberal voice, that way it would have been an alternative to ZB (and don’t get me started about Radio Pacific – that’s for meths drinkers). With all the talkback stations going for the same right wing listeners, ratings can’t expand – get someone to take the liberal road and try something different – why must talkback be so fucking right wing?

How the hell can Michael Laws, that yapping dog of the right ever be considered ‘the new voice of talkback’ – it sounds just like the same old nasal redneck whine to me.

Oh and while we are one ZB – thank God Paul Holmes is leaving – his first interview on TV with Dennis Conner was his most amazing interview ever – he was on ‘our’ side and stick it to dirty Den – but since that point Paul Holmes has become more and more one of the boys, helping the powerful rather than hold the bastards to account. HOW DARE Paul Holmes interview Don Brash in the last election, when a week later Paul was being hired by National to coach Don for a interview with Kim Hill! Why weren’t the sheep of ZB told that? Why weren’t they aware that in a heated election, Paul is ‘grilling’ (hahahahahahahahahahahaha) Don Brash one week, and then getting paid to help him answer questions from hard as nails Kim Hill the next. The job of the media is to hold these bastards accountable – that is the function of a strong media in a strong Democracy, without it we get a dumb democracy and a sold out media.

Devlin quits Radio Live breakfast slot
Martin Devlin has quit Radio Live after months of speculation about his employment, saying his dislike of presenting hard news was to blame - not poor ratings. Devlin had been host of the talk-radio station's breakfast slot since it started two years ago.

If it stirs the same type shit that you stirred on "The Panel" with Charlie Pedderson a few weeks ago, it will be about as much entertainment as watching paint dry!
Hehehehehehe

It would be rude to have ripped out Charlie on air when it wasn't the subject he was coming on for - I made my feelings of him and what he had to say about the environmental issue very clear to the listeners - but didn't feel it was my place or my show to push it any further. That won't be the case on my own show, no baby boomer sales managers run Alt Tv

I was also glad when that leftie toady Brian Edwards talkshow was canned. He's got his tongue so far up Helen Clark's arse he could barely speak properly when Rodney Hide was giving him shit.

Wow. On behalf of myself and a whole bunch of other gullibillies, thanks a heap for putting us straight.
