Manx Radio

Recommended Posts

Perhaps it is time the BBC took over Manx Radio after today's little episode on the 1.00pm news.   Daphne Caine has apparently been whining on Twitter that her intention had only been to form a committee to scrutinise Overseas Aid, what absolute arrogance.   This item was read out on the main news by her brother in law with her husband waiting in the wings to read his sports report.   There is something very wrong here I have never heard any other MHKs twitter remarks given a shout out like this.   Nepotism at best, at worst...well.   Totally disgusting.

Whilst I'm no fan of Daft Daphne, in the interests of accuracy and fact, the MR sports reporter is Chris CAVE, who has no connection to Mrs Caine! Nor does her husband work for Manx Radio, except as a freelance presenter of an hour jazz music, each week.

Regardless of any family relationship inaccuracy, I think the point still stands.

I hear that Manx Radio are holding a lunch for MHKs next Thursday to underline why the money must keep flowing. At the same time they are about to announce who is taking over from Mr Pugh. My money is on someone already working for the station. Its meant to be a short contract until their future is clearer.

Yep, promote one, promote many/all. Others shuffle up one way or another.

It is the Manx government way.

Are you sure, I thought it was Chris Caine and his voice certainly sounds like Chris Caine.

Yes, 100% sure. 

In addition, I noticed that they also referenced a Tweet from Juan Watterson on this evening’s news, so no special treatment for Daft Daphne, either.

You and your bloody facts, clarifying matters. Get lost!

If you go to Manx Radios Facebook page there is a picture of Chris Caine as a presenter, he is not as you rightly said the sports presenter but has presented a lot of programmes recently, unlike his brother he has a very clear speaking voice and certainly does a lot of work and is employed by Manx Radio.
