BBC Local Radio Board / Re: Hello You, it's Iain Lee on BBC3CR Breakfast
« Last post by JY on November 19, 2015, 12:18:21 PM »
The best news the people of the BBC 3CR area have had in years this awful man has fallen on his ego at last. We all saw this day coming it was car crash radio and this nasty interview or should i say vile personal attack was rightly the last straw. After what can only be described as disaster period of 3 years its going to take some time to win back listeners to BBC 3CR now.

Mid-Morning? Iain Lee was on Breakfast. Jonathan Vernon-Smith does mid mornings with his fantastic JVS show.

Further to that radiolad, here's a couple of contrasting media reports that cover Iain's departure from another BBC local radio station. Remember that BBC WM let him go a while back now, didn't they? Firstly, the Guardian reported recent events like this:

http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2015/nov/16/bbcs-iain-lee-leaves-show-after-condemning-guests-anti-gay-views

Whereas this was Radio Today's take. Also included is a clip of the show in question, plus an "interesting" set of comments...

Whatever your opinion is upon Iain Lee, it's probably safer to say that 3CR's mid-mornings won't be anywhere near as interesting now! Maybe he should've tried to harder to emulate Radio Stoke's Perry Spiller, who somehow recently managed to win a Gillard award for best mid-morning show...

An interesting call about classical music. In my opinion, BBC Local Radio is not the place for this as there is already a dedicated BBC station for this. I think holiday specials are the most that can be expected rather than a weekly show of this nature.

I did get the opportunity to be "on air" Darcy to speak to Aziz Rashid - I think I was the third person to ask my questions.  It all went well I think.

Hi Rita, thanks so much for this, I've clipped it and save it for prosperity below as it will disappear from the iPlayer at some point.  I've not heard it all, just the beginning.  Thought it was interesting that Sue Owen mentions that she effectively has her own gathering of listeners from who she takes opinions on the output, one can only assume it's effective what with the success of the station.

On the 'phone-in on Radio Merseyside today, the first hour and a half was dealing with questions from the listeners to Sue Owen, Managing Editor, Aziz Rajid, her boss and Roger Phillips, the presenter, about the BBC generally.  It was a good programme and a lot of the listeners had the opportunity to be "on air" and convey their thoughts and feelings.  Worth a listen.

Forgive me, *both* pieces are on the schedule this week. "Porcelain":    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03wpc05

And I amended the above as I had clicked on the 4 Extra shortcut on my toolbar, not R4.
