He manages 6 days a week normally, but could be heard sometimes twice a day over the festive period.  Nothing personal, but really it is too much.  Is there no one else who can bodge a couple of hours of some musical genre or other and call it a Christmas Special? 

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?!

There was a bumper crop of mushrooms up round Scard this year, basically his back garden, he should be well stocked.

Careful now, the last time some pointed out there was a non-Manx presenter on the station (ibid.) she complained on Twitter that there was at least 10 pages of nasty manx forums trollsposting about her. (In fact there was a solitary post making the point in passing).

Andy Wint was doing his bit, just after 8.30 this morning, to be first on Manx Radio's 2021 bloopers recording.

"There's a lovely sunrise in the west this morning."

And there was him running a competition for the first "mug of the year"

Hey Snaips, as the enigma has pointed out, you have bags and bags of yer man Phil Gawne on Manx Radio, adverts too. Is he not a nice Manx accent? All squeaky, drawly and theatrical like.

She is OK, plays a good selection of music, apart from not pronouncing the G in most words, which is all the more odd given her surname is Gascoigne!

A veritable pain in the ass and ear to listen to.

Yeah she is ok. Just a bit hysterical about having 10 pages of that nasty Manx Forums about here. 

Second G in her name isn't pronounced. Must get it from there.

Maybe you should only listen to John Kaneen then. Your comments are insulting to Kerry, who is liked by listeners of all ages. I love her shows and I am in my 60s. 
We are lucky to have young talented female presenters like Kerry, Christy DeHaven, Beth Espey, Sarah Hendy and I include Judith Ley too. 
Can never understand the continual knocking of everything MR and their staff do.

I love Manx Radio. Long may it live.
