  1. Planning Notices went online only years ago, which I thought was a bad move considering there are still many who still aren't online. Also I was disappointed when the Divorce Notices stopped being published - they were great skeet!
  2. I only listen from mid-day to 1pm these days but I do like Phil Gawne. When is he on these days?
  3. There was someone called Kerry with a shrieky high-pitched voice on at lunchtime today - awful Don't listed to MR much any more but are there no presenters left with a nice Manx accent?!
  4. I like Andy Wint's programme - there's much more variety and he has much wider knowledge than the last presenter!
  5. Should be Fastyr Jedoonee now.
  6. Not just poorer nations. Trump and his right wing evangelical puppet masters are shutting down family planning and abortion clinics in many US states.
  7. No matter what the supposed 'new sound' will be it'll certainly not be immediately recognisable as being broadcast from the IOM. Tune into RTE1 and you instantly know it's Irish radio!
  8. My expectations are low! Blue2 adverts are cringworthy. I remember a few years ago Stu Peters saying that he was going to set up a media company to produce the adverts here (or am I wrong Stu?). My pet hates are the voices used, eg the woman who does the Manx Telecom ads, the one who does the stairlift one and any that use children's voices
  9. You're full of shite hissingsid - were you Viper in a previous form?!
  10. I'm one of those that likes Manx Radio
  11. I listen to Talking Heads most days Stu because I like your style (some of the time!), but can't stand the constant flow of fatuous texts you read out from Gary From Ramsey and Frank the Fact. My listening experience would be so much better if you limited both of them to one text per programme and try not to encourage them by sniggering at their childish sexist comments
  12. Cotton Traders stuff is absolute crap! Nice glossy brochures come in the post but since I went into the shop I've chucked brochures straight into the bin! They deserve to go out of business.
  13. I like Phil Gawne, he speaks FLUENT Manx and he doesn't have a whiney blah blah voice! So there!
  14. Stu, the only MR programmes I listen to every day are Talking Heads (I notice you're getting quite philosphical recently - suits you!) and on Sundays the Mannin Line. Plus all the Manx Gaelic programmes when I remember. Rest of the morning I have RTE Radio 1 on because they have such lively. humerous and intelligent discussions. I don't understand why people complain about the music (and programmes/adverts generally) when they can easily tune in to other channels or listen to their own playlists on itunes or whatever. There's such things as volume control and off-switch (I rush to turn it off at 3pm for the incredibly annoying and sanctimonious 'Thought for the Day shite!) then on again for the news at 5 o'clock. Then it's telly time
  15. You like Country & Western, yet you don't like 'rubbish music'!!! Maybe you should write to the new boss asking for a half hour programme just for you - you seem to think you're special enough!
  16. I agree. Out of respect for the horrors of that dreadful night (which I saw and vividly remember) it should be turned into a facility that families can enjoy. Apartments would be completely inappropriate.
  17. I think 9pm is the limit for kids to be pubs. It even became the law in Ireland I believe (but not enough Garda in the rural areas now to enforce it!).
  18. There is no god! When will prople come to their senses in this day and age and realise that all religions are a scam?! I despair at some peoople’s intelligence Remove the charitable status afforded to religious groups!!

    These are the MHK's who voted to keep the Bishop in Legco - it needs people to contact them, berate them for their decision and ask for another vote (except Anderson - good riddance!) The time is right! Mr Baker, Mr Boot, Mr Callister, Mr Cannan, Mr Cregeen, Mr Harmer, Mr Malarkey, Mr Moorhouse, Mr Perkins, Mr Quayle, Mr Robertshaw, Mr Skelly, Mr Watterson, Mr Anderson, Mr Coleman, Mr Corkish, Mr Crookall, Mr Henderson all voted for Bishop’s vote to remain. Surprised about Malarkey, Perkins and Henderson though - I thought they were more progressive

    The coast road would be a nightmare!
  21. I watched the highlights programme - lovely except for the ceremony itself with its endless religious mumbo jumbo!
  22. I’m optimistic - all the newly elected MLC’s have stated that they’re pro choice on the abortion reform issue, plus (for the first time ever!) I felt proud of our MHKs when they supported Alex Allinson’s bill (with a few exceptions!)
