I don't regard Chris Evans or Jonathan Ross as "smug". If you want smug, then try Sarah Kennedy, Ken Bruce, Steve Wright, Dermot O'Leary, Michael Parkinson, Dale Winton, Elaine Paige, Sheridan Morley, etc.

As I say, smugess is something that nearly all presenters display. The only ones who I think DON'T display smugness are Desmond, Humph, David Jacobs and Richard Baker. They are just genuine fellows.

Very few people with low self esteem make it to the top of the pile as a radio dj on BBC radio 2.

Ken Bruce has got as much self-esteem as Dermot O'Leary and Davina McCall put together... Rolling Eyes

Scott Laughing

Your list of 'smug' presenters proves you have NO IDEA what the word means!!! Please note, someone isn't 'smug' just because you don't like the music they play Scott Rolling Eyes

Ken has been the best daytime show this week, sandwiched between the Xmas cheesy fill-ins.

Nothing wrong with him - he's certainly not smug.

JR, on the other hand, is, but that's just his particular style.

Scott this may be the Gripes forum but your message breaks rule 2:

2. Continual spamming of opinions, especially opinions moaning about a particular presenter or show, will not be tolerated. This thread is not aimed at descending into the public denigration of respected broadcasters.

Scott, KB is brilliant, considering he is a RNJC, seriously though Scott, Ken has a super personality,IMHO, plays great music, does not talk, sing or cut tracks short and actually informs you what music he is playing. Not bad for a guy who sneaked by Hadrian Wink

Scott,

I am starting to lose my patience with your continual breaking of the rules.

this is not a constructive arguement.

Remember that if you continue doing this, the length of your next ban will be at our discretion, and if the ban is for the same old things, it could well be a long ban.

I don't think so! I never have liked Ken Bruce. If I ever get the chance to listen to Wogan until 9.30am, I have to switch Bruce off instantly. I find him smug, patronising, boring and extremely stale. The same boring features on his show, the same stale format...the show is as flat as Steve Wright's 3 hours of 1980s nonsense.

I would much rather hear somebody fresh and upbeat on the mid morning slot. Richard Allinson, Simon Mayo, Alex Lester, Mark Goodier, Pete Mitchell or even Chris Tarrant...they would brighten up those bland mid mornings on the station. Also, some new features are needed on the slot.

There are parts of the Radio 2 schedule that need urgent makeovers - weekdays is just one area, right from 6.00am - 5.00pm. Drivetime has improved since Chris Evans took over, Saturday's have seen improvement and so have parts of Sundays. The problem with Radio 2 is it's got far too complacent. A change is as good as the rest.

Scott, I think that you will find that you are in a minority about KB, as for a change is as good as a rest, well I tend to go along with "if ain't broke, don't try & fix it". R2 has a diversity of programmes that will provide something for the majority of tastes & ages, although myself I do not see age as a prerequisite for any preference of musical genre or presenter. I just cannot see how someone like CE or Wossy could fit into Wogan's slot, especially Wossy with his crudeness, they start bad language soon enough without hearing it on the school run! So I suggest you do as I am forced to do when CE, Wossy & David Jacobs is on, switch off or over to another radio station. Wink

The network will when the time is right replace Wogan with someone else outside, I think?

Hi Clott,

Thanks for making your first post on here one that makes us think about a show on Radio2, or a presenter, or even your christmas. Neutral

If you want to stay around and post about presenters, shows etc etc, then feel free, but please do not just come on here to create havoc with existing members. This board is not a place for petty backbiting and I think it is a real pity that your first post, even though you obviously have been lurking for a while, is basically an insult of a current member.

Admin.

Yeah well thanks for that Mr Admin but I have no intention of hanging around any forum that Scott Nelson contributes to, as I've read his repetitive drivel a hundred times before on the old R2 board.

It won't be long before he's banned for good and then I'll come back and post something worthwhile. Toodle - pip................

We all know how volatile Scott is.

We all know how much of a troll and nuisance Scott was on the R2MB.

We all know how Scott will bite when someone posts insults against him or winds him up.

However, it is obvious that at least 2 registered members on this board think it is a good idea to goad Scott into retaliation/attack, and this will NOT be tolerated.

Scott may have had more warnings that anybody on here, but that does not give anybody the right to deliberately rile him up in an attempt to get him permanently banned.

Posts like tonights will NOT be tolerated in any shape or form. Mad

Clott South; you echo my words precisely.

While this individual causes havoc, I will steer clear.

I deleted my last post by mistake Embarassed

What I basically said was that I don't think Radio 2's daytime schedule needs changing as I think it's fine the way it is.
I did say a bit more but I can't be bothered to type it again. Laughing

Let ne get this clear; Mr Clout/Nelson is volatile, a nuisance and is a troll but we are not allowed to say so.

Some democracy.

Does not compute.

I can't speak fot the othere two, but I did not register here to goad him' in fact, he is the reason I have posted lttle till now.

I think you owe us an apology.

Nice one H.

Admin - Scott will never change. He has no place on any forum anywhere. You are mad to give him the right to post. His past record proves he will abuse it time and time again then come grovelling when he realises he's gone too far.

Just get rid of him. See what a nice place this forum will be without him.

Oh, and ban ME if you want. My life doesn't revolve around a forum.

Howard,

This board doesn't work like that. You will only get banned after being warned.

This is your first warning Howard for posting 3 messages that will only cause trouble. Breakage of Rule 1.

I agree with some of the previous posters-Ken Bruce is very dull these days imho and as such hopefully will be replaced soon.

I like the idea of someone like Richard Allinson, Mark Goodier, Chris Tarrant etc taking over with some new features, some new ideas, a new musical competition.

The existing mid morning format is dull as dishwater.

It is not us who gets him banned, it is himself.

I doubt Ken will be replaced for the forseeable future and indeed why should he be? His show is popular and while that remains it would be daft (in my humble opinion) to change.

I wouldn't mind Chris Tarrant being on at the weekend though, that would be good. Smile

You have posted 6 messages, 5 are insults or rubbish spouting off.
