    Not the first time and it won't be the last time that Manx Radio report fake news.

    Yes, it's an essential part of Manx Radio - them being the Island's 5th emergency service and all!

    I certainly am! Well, it's an emergency service in the imagination of A̶l̶a̶n̶ ̶P̶a̶r̶t̶r̶i̶d̶g̶e̶ ̶ Stu Peters. But that's about it.

    Here we go again, delusions of grandeur from Mr Peters! Anyone with the knowledge of and passion for the TT can commentate on it. It certainly doesn't require 7 years of training. Commentating on the TT and Brain Surgery - another Classic! Keep them coming, Stu. Keep them coming! Twitch is right - Manx Radio TT has a very poor standard of commentary. Where does the £100k go?

    Essentially Manx Radio's AM capability is being maintained at great cost to the taxpayers for use 2 weeks of the year. The way forward is online - AM is a radio dinosaur. That's why Energy FM or 3FM won't need an AM frequency to cover the TT. Nearly everyone who comes to visit the TT will have a mobile phone and there is no reason why they won't download the TT app and can listen through that. There are plenty of TT fans that would work for free to provide coverage of the races - essentially all it involves is a guy at the Grandstand, two guys in a hedge - one at Glen Helen and the other at the Hair Pin. It's really simple. No doubt Mr Peters will claim otherwise, but it really isn't that difficult and there is no excuse for the costs that Manx Radio claim to be incurred by covering the TT. In fact, a FOI request would be very interesting to see what they are doing with the money...

    And still manage to give more up to date traffic and travel information that their subsidised colleagues on Manx Radio....

    Limited value? Seemingly like your contributions to this forum. Nice of the forum troll to drop by.

    You've got a fair point there - LBC don't claim to be a 'Nation Station', they don't need a taxpayer bailout and they don't claim to be an emergency service. I've also had visitors come from the UK who found it entertaining... But not in an informative way. They thought it was some kind of sketch show... Royston Vasey FM I think was how they described it.

    Being extremely disrespectful to the emergency services.

    Sadly to be expected. If anyone listens to any phone in show on LBC you'd quickly realise how poor the content on Manx Radio is.

    Still waiting for that apology to the emergency services from Alan Partridge Mr Peters!

    Use whatever colour and thickness of crayons you like. The facts remain the same. There is literally no comparison. The Isle of Man could continue to function perfectly fine (probably even better) without the sloppy, amateurish excuse of a 'national broadcaster' that is Manx Radio. However, I suspect we would all notice a difference if the police, fire and ambulance service disappeared. I'm sure there must be some people (although an ever decreasing number) that still like Manx Radio, so please don't get ideas above your station and start comparing your station to something of national importance. Manx Radio should recognise it's place, and not get above its station.

    And that can't be put out to tender, because?
