Hey, Manx Radio had an interview with one of the weather guys on Mandate this morning. He sounds a bundle of fun at dinner parties - I only asked if it is going to rain later, I don't want a lecture  about temperature differentials and cumulonimbus occlusions etc.

You have to be careful with cumulonimbus occlusions - they may lead to uncertainty over horatio.

Trademark illiteracy from Manx Radio website leads to some amusing results:

In a statement issued by Mr Boot, he said his department was currently considering a response to the letter, and went on the make a few points in the meantime.

It says, "However, as I said in Tynwald last week, and in response to previous questions, continuous monitoring ceased because testing carried out over the preceding 12 years had not identified significant problems.

I wonder when the announement will be that Manx Radio has retained the TT broadcasts.  It’s not exactly a secret and even Jo Pack has tweeted that it is “where it should be”.

Got to ask why it’s taken a year for the government to not make any headway on putting the contract out to tender. After all Tim Glover and co thought they had lost it at the end of the last Event with all their big goodbye speeches etc.

Surprised Juan Turner did not kick in on this

One of the dumbest commentators when they first started was Chris Kinley. He had little clue about the TT other than what went on at Bushy's tent. Thrown in at the deep end when Geoff Cannell died, his interviewing standard was on the lines of "this bike, er um, is it er, quick?" However, he learnt to mimic the phrases thrown back at him and use them in sort of the right places later, eventually enough to make a passable standard of interviewing and commentating.
