I can't make my mind up if it's annoying that JV occupies 5 minutes of Kens show at 11:30 everyday when I don't listen to JV's show or it's a good laugh as Ken makes fun of JV and his topics.

What do you think ?

I'm all for the ridiculing approach. Plus it warns you off, just in case you were tempted into thinking the show had improved. Laughing

It's the few minutes of Steve Wright & The Ginger whinger in that 'Elvis' trailer that I couldn't take. A timely reminder to switch over (Lest I forget) because those shows definitely haven't improved and are unlikely to short of a change of presenter.

The 5 minutes with Ken is more entertaining than Jeremy's whole show. Ken just cuts straight to the heart of every story, and does it brilliantly.

It depends what the topic is. Sometimes it can be very entertaining. I just loved the day last year when the topic was caravans (a subject close to Ken Bruce's heart!) Jeremy had a guest who was an anti caravan campaigner, while one of his callers was a very keen caravaner. The exchanges were very entertaining indeed! Shocked Laughing

Well he's certainly better value than Wossy or CE, I have never heard either play anything as long as Stairway To Heaven without spouting over it, and/or cutting it short. Ken also has an in depth knowledge and love of rock and popular music, and just a big ego, IMHO.
