Radio ga-ga

I had the misfortune to hear a snippet of Radio Viking this morning. The presenting duo, Sam and Mark where presenting a feature called "Fact of the Day" and Sam came out with the fact that "in the olden days only rich people wore underwear", Mark followed this up with this remarkable insight "you mean poor people didn't wear pants". Tomorrow it will go something like this, Mark "I've got a 3 legged dog", Sam "you mean it's got 1 leg missing". Sadly there will be people in Hull tonight repeating this in the local hostelries adding to the belief that Sam and Mark (and indeed most DJ's in the world) are entertaining.

Todays word of the day:- Vacuous

Hmm, you are of course, as usual correct quilldancer, but i was not repeating it as a fascinating fact. My point was in relation to the follow up comment, which to me assumes all listeners are idiots, but also that most dj's don't think before they open their mouths.
I must write clearer posts.

Bazza-the vacuous content of the programming is all over the place...here as well...i get embarrassed just listening to the drivel.
