I genuinely don't know where to begin :shock:
All ex-Radio 1 jocks are either racists, tax avoiders or gropey nonces.
Darren will buy it by the truck load.
I have no headphones any good?
It's trash I tell you.
Not even calypso, it's Mento. Very, very bad Mento too!
This is the first time I've seen Mike Read actually do anything at all (other than DJ on something I've never heard) since I was about 6 and he was on Saturday Superstore with Patricia Licorish and Keith Chegwin 'What's that noise?'
It's bizarre, yesterday I thought to myself 'Is Mike Read the only old radio dude that hasn't been exposed as a dreadful bastard?' and then this popped up on my twitter. The most depressing thing is thinking about some guy having to sit in the studio engineering this garbage.
I posted that link last week where you could find out what was on TV the day you were born.
Highlights for me were:
Swap Shop with Mike Read
Grandstand with Frank Bough
Jim'll Fix It
From the brief listen I had it sounds like a one mic recording done while he plays it live at some conference or other, so thankfully any engineer involvement was likely minimal.
It's of the same quality as those Christmas no.1 attempts that appear on the local news in December every year, usually derisory dad-rock with humourous puns done by mulleted idiots in their shed in Pontefract. Risible.
This is bringing down the reputation of 70s BBC DJs. Savile must be spinning in his grave.
Ha. My band did a Christmas song. to be fair it paid for quite a lot of recordings and was only a pisstake.

So essentially if you're pissed off about the song you're excluded from being pissed of about other issues?
What an absolute pile of blind horseshit.
Err, the fact a thread was dedicated on these boards to this trivial issue of no importance, when a thread detailing mass nationwide grooming is missing, pretty much proves Farage's point. And stop pretending to care about scummy working class whites. Your kind care about nothing outside the scope of far left privilege checking and multicultural 'values'.
'I'm upset about an incredibly intolerant, racist ukip calypso song. Therefore grooming.'
I think you're forgetting the thread we had about Rotherham though Darren. You were involved in it.
Yeah, and I started the thread. Point proven. So what am I forgetting? Maybe to remind lefty darlings to rearrange their priorities.
And Farage's is not suggesting that you cannot offer sympathy and a voice against the backdrop of both issues simultaneously. What he is exposing, again, is a lack of interest by the left to seriously tackle something far more important and widespread, than the implications of a fucking song.
Also, believe me, the irony of musicians historically arguing for the preservation of free speech, particularly for the rights of artists and musicians, by arguing and demanding a curtailment of a song because your feelings are hurt, has not been lost on me.
The article is utter shit and so are your opinions on it. Just completely meaningless binary drivel.
