No, it's probably in their contract, or they're getting backhanders, or something. 'Woodentop' this afternoon has been going on about it, to the point where I turned the radio off and started listening to CDs instead.

If you get tired of CD's/your iPod could I suggest you tune into Richard Allinson on BFBS Radio 2 by using the listen again feature.

It is without doubt the best show on radio by a mile.

Sit back, ,crank it up and enjoy the fantastic music Richard plays.

This is how radio should really be.

Best

Yes, I turn off when radio presenters talk about Big Brother! It's bad enough when I tape something on the same channel following it - there's ten minutes of that year's nonentities doing damn all, and then, say, I miss the end of 'The Dead Zone' or 'Max & Paddy's Road To Nowhere'!

It really gets on my threepenny bits that my seven-year-old niece can tell us who's in the house, but has never heard of a number of the acts I like!

The thing that really irks me is that the 'housemates' on normal BB become 'celebs' by default and then every media outlet wants to splash them over our screens, newspapers and magazines. It's not jealously on my part, just that they've done ab zero to become famous except prattle on about sod all for several weeks, compete against each other to see who can be the biggest tw*t or get their kit off for the benefit of the cameras (or in most cases, all three).... let's face it, if they had talent they'd have managed to make it without resorting to being locked in the TV equivalent of a mental asylum for weeks on end! Sad

I don't necessarily blame the production company for prolonging the agony (after all, the ratings still seem to draw advertising revenues) but I do blame the gullible British public who seem to thrive on such cr*p (present company excepted of course).... Sad

Rant over.
