LBC's sports coverage is pretty half hearted - the days when sport was restricted to Saturday afternoon are long gone. I think they'd actually do better to drop Scores and offer a talk alternative to...

This is the sort of programme that Garry Bushell spent years trying to get more of on TV. It was dated even in 1989.

A confession: despite the extraordinary shiny suit, I laughed quite a few times...

I wasn't so keen on their Talk Radio work, but the Big Noise (Sunday mornings on Newstalk 1152) remains one of my all-time favourite 'LBC' programmes.

Why would you move the most listened to show on nighttime radio (Alex Lester), and Bob Harris, just to make room for Richard Allinson? I think he will fit in perfectly on Magic. He's competent enough...

Private Eye alleged that that was the intention, but it ran up against the 'not enough women on Radio Two' problem.

Very odd piece of scheduling: wouldn't it make more sense to put the Non-League Show out live at 8 instead of recording it at that time, and then putting the In Short filler show on at 5am?

I'm not going to comment on the outcome of the trial but I can't see that not showing DLT TOTPs is anything to do with the BBC being 'left wing'. Surely it's fear of the outcry in the right-wing...
