I have been listening to talksport for about 6 years now, i listen pretty much all day when i can, and also through the night.

There have been some presenters that I have liked more than others.

One that i never really liked was James Whale, i know he has a lot of fans on here, but i just never got him.

There are some who i remember throughout the years, and i wish were still about ...

John Kearns was the presenter of the overnight show, and i loved him, great show and lots of laughs.

Also for me Tommy boyd deserves a mention.

who are your faves ?

I used to enjoy the motoring program at noon on Friday with Mike Rutherford and also an I.T. type program they did at lunchtime. (Can't remember the guys' name but he used to do the announcements at West Ham !)

Richard Koffman and ,of course, Beaky who should still be on instead of the useless Irani

Tommy Boyd's "wonderful hour" on Friday afternoons was superb radio - the best anti-depressant you could hope to take and 100% no side-effects!

Steve Bentley - a superb list! Back in the Talk Radio days. It amazes me that I've been listening to this radio station since its Valentines Day launch many many years ago!

Must admit my favourites were Beadle (RIP), Caesar, Whale, Dicken (RIP), and sports reporter Jonny Gould.

Never took to Charlie Wolf, not least because he used to present shows on my local "Better Music Mix" station which were an abomination.

I liked James Whale and Charlie Wolf, oh and Mike Dickin.

Not anyone on TS I really like at the moment.

And I can't stand Fatty I just hope he doesn't come back although he's only been suspended so he probably will.

Tommy boyd was good (except the wonderful hour which was nausiating) I remember him once debating with a caller about the existence of god and trying to make the caller angry by calling god a 'twerp'.
I remember in the early days they had a scottish woman on in the afternoon but can't remember if it was Lorraine Kelly or Anna Raeburn (probably spelt wrong).
Never liked charlie wolf I always thought he was a right wing Israel apologist.
Mike Dikin was a legend although near the end I think he jumped the shark.
Richard Kaufman was a twit
Patrick Kinghorne ok
Tom Watt, twit

He had a inspired idea one day of doing "Titanic on the radio" getting various callers to read lines from "Titanic" - some of them got really into it, and it was great hearing all these broad regional accents hamming it up and trying to stop themselves laughing!

Used to always listen to 'UK Today with Scott Chisholm'. He later got teamed up with Lowri Turner and moved to afternoons. Gary Jacobs R.I.P. was always a great listen also.

Loads of great presenters passed through the Talk Radio / TalkSport doors. I'm sure others will mention many of them, can't believe Wild Al Kelly hasn't been mentioned yet! Hard to imagine that presenters like Caesar the Geezer, Wild Al, Vanessa Feltz & Dr. David Starkey were all on the same station!

Johnny Gould (the sports guy) was a legend!

Anyway that was when it was Talk Radio. The best shows on TalkSport were, I thought, Mike Dickin & Ian Collins and the Creatures of the Night. Ian was a much better listen in those days I thought.

I think at one stage Lorraine was on followed by Anna

The all too short period where we had

Whale + Collins weeknights

Boyd + Holland Weekends

were super awesome.

As opposed to now which is crud.

Steve Norris was good on a Sunday evening I thought. I also liked his recent appearance alongside George Galloway on a TalkSport election programme, chaired by Ian Collins.

I would say Caesar the Geezer on TS. A shame he is apparently "a fat thief", I think that is who Ian Collins is referring to. I did laugh as well when Rod Lucas referred to him as a nightmare when a caller called up and mentioned him.
