Steve Wright in the Afternoon-Radio One, 1980s
 
Was anyone else a big fan? Who was your favourite of his characters or which bit of the show did you particular like, etc?

Vodka_Drinka 22-01-2013 20:54

My mum was. I'm too young to remember it properly, but she liked Steve Wright, Dave Lee Travis etc and always had Radio One on in the car.

Made stock counting in a warehouse a bit more bearable.

Mr ANGRY was funny, I remember that character

Phoenix Lazarus 22-01-2013 21:29

Dave Doubledex used to crack me up.

Yes, OP - when teeny-ish, I enjoyed the Radio One original. However... one of my neighbours is a fan of the twenty-first century version of the 'Big Show', which appears to involve SW singing acapella for up to twenty minutes at a time. My poor ears. :eek:

Sid The Manager ("'ello"?)
Gervais the Hairdresser
Bowie
Mick and Keef

I will admit to being a fan. I loved the Total Recall spoof sketches - Total Respray, Total Remix, Total Reheat etc.

BinCat 22-01-2013 22:49

Used to like the camp hairdresser, Gervais. "Keep Yer Tongue Out!":D

Phoenix Lazarus 22-01-2013 22:51

Some of those silly recordings of people laughing, that he used to play, used to crack me up.

Saltydog1955 22-01-2013 22:57

Phil Cornwell doing Mick Jagger - 'I'm goin' to Sa'urn for me 'olidays'.

Gervaise the hairdresser - 'Keep yer tongue out!'

Mr Angry - 'I'm gong to throw the phone down!!'

Listen to his Radio 2 shows.

They're essentially the same as his ones from Radio 1 - right down to the music played.

I've actually asumed for some time that they're just repeats...

Not really as he doesn't have all the comedy characters he used to have.

On Radio 2 all it seems to be now is a bunch of fawning lickspittles on his 'team' who pander to him to make him sound amusing. It's all about him now.

And that's why I stopped listening.

These ^ and Billy Idol who was always crashing his motorbike. :D

I always listened to Steve Wright when he was on Radio 1, my favourite character was Damian the Radio 1 social worker.

Can't listen to the show he does now on Radio 2 - no comparison

Agreed.........and the 'old woman' :'I'm bad..........you're worse,catch yourself on.......etc' from Northern Ireland was my favourite.

Saltydog1955 23-01-2013 13:42

Wasn't 'The Old Woman' Wright's mum? :confused:

Cryolemon 23-01-2013 13:54

I'm too young to remember the Radio 1 show, so I actually don't mind the Radio 2 one. Ask Elvis is amusing.

That was the same woman who used to say, 'Thankyou, doctor' and 'Get some therapy'. I thought she was actually supposed to be a cleaner at the studios.

A few weeks ago Bruno Tonioli from Strictly was in the studio the same day as the Old Woman was there. They came in from playing a record with much laughter and hilarity that stopped abruptly when Bruno mentioned Steve Wrights Mum had just liked something he did :D

Bluster a'plenty in the studio and a definate drop in atmosphere.
