Bugger.
I don't listen that often to Talksport but I like his style and his confrontational attitude.
I'd love to hear him on Radio2 or maybe hosting Question Time?? Razz ..but I don't think it'll happen some how.

March 20th what took them so long?

Is that a reflection of how many people listen?

I remember the 'Talk Radio' good old days. Tommy Boyd, James Whale and Mike Dickin... now that's a schedule that kept me coming back for more!

James Whale might be arrogant, egotistical, arguementative, and a whole host of things that drive you mad..... but that's exactly why i spent whole nights just listening. He will be sorely missed from the schedules, especially as he was one of a select few that survived from the 'Radio' to 'Sport' switch.

Maybe it is a time for the return of Tommy Boyd! Come back, all is forgiven!

I used to enjoy listening to Clive Bull on nights on LBC many moons ago. Whatever happened to him? Is he still broadcasting?
