    Pretty sure he means the other chap not Stu!

    Yes I did mean the other chap.

    You can't just 'give someone a slot' although I am happy to be proved wrong.. There needs to be aptitude for the job, personality and a certain amount of training required. Certainly many of today's senior presenters did *ahem* discos and stuff before entering the word of broadcasting, many had a natural leaning to the job.

    Anyway, we'll see.

    If I was an employer in any industry I would bin Jordan’s CV the second it landed in my Inbox. Can you imagine the trouble he’d cause for you if he was working within your company in his pursuit to be offended by anything and everything.

    Ramsey update

    Swan in Ramsey was running out of beer last night. There's been deliveries but sales were very brisk.

    Mitre in Ramsey was rammed last night.

    Central is rumoured to be opening the week after next.

    Plough opens tomorrow @ 12.00pm

    Still no news on the Royal - but as nobody ever goes there its kind of moot.


    Landlady of the Stanley is taking over the Royal. But don’t tell anyone because it’s top secret. I’ve only been told by about 5 different people now.

    I see the sponsors of his show have now publicly withdrawn their sponsorship. 

    The sponsor was IOM Creameries. I bet he regrets not buying Manx milk for his coffee shop

    Don't much like Howard Stern either. Perhaps he made his Twitter private because people were trawling back through it to dig up dirt on him to post here. He clearly reads MF since he quoted Stu's own post to him.

    Are you Mr Badass?

  6. Remember when you first took out a gas or electric account and you had to pay a deposit, no? Well you did.

    Has anyone ever had or asked for those back?

    Anyone know how Stu's tempory replacement is doing? Has there been any comments read out?

    It’s turned into 3FM.

    Yep, they were lined up for him, and with the mobie videos recording the radio.


    And then sharing their apparent outrage on social media. Hundreds of comments calling for him to be sacked, when in actual fact 99% had no idea what had even happened, let alone listened to what had been said on the show.

    It’s a sad world where a good radio presenter can potentially be taken out as easily as that.

  9. I’ve downloaded the entire 3 hour .mp3 of the show. If I get time tomorrow I’ll cut all the music and adverts out so you can listen to it.

    Stu said nothing wrong and was basically attacked from the start by some precious flowers after they didn’t like the factual stats he posted on here yesterday. It escalated from there.

    There not opening there emptying everything out also at the Manor today. A select few pubs have been fully emptied make of that what you will. 

    Saw them at the Stanley in Ramsey today. They were walking empty pallets to the pub as I drove past. There were kegs in the back of the lorry. Can only assume they were collecting rather than delivering.

    Skelly is a stumbling mess, so is the stream for todays presser.

    He was obviously reading from someone else’s script. He pronounced swathe as swoth.

  12. Don’t know about elsewhere, but in Ramsey  now that everybody’s at home and the streets are pretty much empty it’s only the young chavs that are left walking around. Hoods up and makeshift face masks on hiding their identity verbally abusing pretty much anyone. They need taking off the streets while we’re having a cleanse.

  13. I’m sure the first caller today said the F word live on air and Andy Wint didn’t even notice.

    I know at least 3 people on island who have been treated for pneumonia this year and prescribed drugs to treat it.

    One under 30, one under 40 and one under 60. One was off work for three weeks!

    Its here already I tell ya...


    From watching Ashford’s interview yesterday, the only way you’ll get tested for Coronavirus over here is if you ‘meet the criteria’ by having been to one of the badly affected countries. 

    So basically anyone who catches it from someone in the UK or Ireland won’t get tested here and therefore it won’t officially exist over here.

    At what price though? There are visitor fatalities and serious accidents most years.Was it last year that someone threw it down the road within minutes of the Mountain going one way?

    Don’t know, but it was last year that someone died in a 50 limit at the Creg.
