Things which make me turn off Radio 4 after just having switched it on

Yesterday:
  • Count Arthur Strong. Seriously, get this off the fucking radio. Either you've not heard it in which case really don't seek it out, or you've heard it, in which case you either think it's unforgiveable balls or you are seriously delusional.

Today:
  • A Moneybox Live special on housing and how basically first-time buyers are still fucked regardless, which I did make it to the end of with some pain, but then the Now Show started up. Normally I can cope to the Now Show with just an occasional grimace - it's not the worst Radio 4 comedy - but in the context I just wasn't prepared to indulge it.

I have never understood the appeal of Strong. That they've released CDs, and that these have sold, is scary. Combine that with some of the cast actually being quite good in other things, and I just don't understand why the show exists--put the talent to use in something that's actually good FFS.

But disagree on Now Show, have always liked it, and MArcus is increasingly parodying himself on it now, which is rather amusing.

Generally it's an okay show (it's got better over the years IMO) but they do have a tendency to run with a weak joke for too long when they should know to move on. I think it was "not very funny satirical Christmas carols" that time.
