I can't believe people listen to the radio. I love podcasts and music, but the idea of mixing the two and not having any choice seems right bloody crazy.

Must be an old persons thing
To be honest, I mostly stream stuff off Apple Music nowadays or the odd Podcast. As my taste in music is somewhat eclectic (and Germany‘s radio stations are, well, not so much) other than the local news I don‘t listen to radio that much.

Of course, I have invested some time in a technical solution that allows me to listen to important things like Test Match Special, but that is a separate use-case.

Ale ape.
Did they put your direct debit up without your permission? I went with Shell when I moved in because the last owners were with them. I thought wrongly it might simplify things.
After talking to a few people and googling reviews on ShelI now realise what an utter bunch of useless ***** they are.

They emailed to tell me they were doing it, so I guess I could have objected. But I wasn’t sure how much it was actually going to change with the energy cap going up.

I can self-adjust my DDs in the app though, so I’ll now have a month where I just pay £1 or something.

That Steve Wright thing ? He is as funny as toothache, can’t stand a second of his drivel.

Radio 6 on the office until MaryAnne Hobnobs comes in , she makes David Quantick sound uneffected.

I remember when Steve Wright first started and he was different, all the characters he brought in and used, it was quite entertaining. Trouble is and I've not listened for a very long time he was still doing the same stuff 40years later, and he has a very high opinion of himself.

It's literally the same thing he's still doing. Same unfunny Alan Bennett and Jeremy Vine impressions. Serious jocking was serious bollocks. Just an all round shitfest.

Same, maybe bang a bit of Kisstory on in the car, but other than that podcasts and stream music.

Some great points made in this thread.

Frey Bentos pies. Love them. Glad it isn't just me who ruins tin openers whenever I get one, hence why they are now banned in our house. Out if interest, why doesn't every tin come with a fucking ring pull? Do they have share in manufacturing tin openers or something? Fucking infuriating.

Dogs in pubs, not arsed unless like has been stated they are either barking, or coming up to me begging for food after I have brought some crisps from the bar. Can I also add why has the tap side in pubs diminished and now I have peoples fucking kids running around? I came to the pub to get away from my family for an hour...

Why has it all of a sudden become trendy for pubs, bars and restaurants to become dog friendly. No one wants to have to sit there whilst two dogs are barking across the room at each other or every time someone walks past. There also seems to be a correlation between the owners that do bring their dogs and the owners that couldn't give a fuck that their dog is barking as long as they and the people they are with are enjoying themselves.
I quite like dogs. But some of the idiots who own them have really turned me against them.

It's all about mid-table...
Had to ring Nottm City Homes for my elderly Mother today.
The lady who answered (eventually)seemed pleasant enough but I had to keep repeating myself slowly and loud? Now many wont believe this but my phone voice is quintessentially perfect English, exqusite and well versed and precise !! 😯
A simple request turned into a marathon, she seemed not up to the job tbh.
I really think that every service and product industry is getting neanderthal.
I cant see a solution, it's the blind uneducated leading the blind uneducated.
Who or what can halt this obvious decline in basic standards?
