Jonathan Ross to Join Just A Minute!
« on: August 07, 2014, 06:39:08 PM »
No matter the adverse publicity.

It is only my opinion , but Jonathan Ross is hugely funny on radio. I still miss him on R2 on Saturday mornings.

Glad that he is on BBC radio again.

He better be good!

Back in the 1990s I used to think Chris Evans was the most talentless disgusting person ever to grace the BBC airwaves. My one and only letter of complaint to the BBC was about a radio antic of his which my family endured one morning over breakfast.

He is of course now the hero of the BBC, and all that listen.

And I remain in a minority of 1 of course.

Ross is hugely popular. There will be plenty of bad taste references to the likes of disabled people etc. I find him bearable but who gives a toss any more about maintaining standards. Lowest Common Denominator always wins.

Fair comment Albert. And there are reasons that Ross should hang his head in shame.

I do not know whether you ever listened to his R2 Show, it was very different from his TV shows and he introduced some great music but mainly he just spoke about his family life. And because he was being natural it was v funny and warm and self depreciating..I know that may be hard to believe...

I tend to agree with you there Albert.
