Simple fact - Google radio stations and you'll find millions you can listen to. You can find every kind of content you want, every kind of music - and two local stations are absolutely no different fr

Why don't energy and 3fm just pack up - they're both a load of shite anyway - and leave the advertising revenue for MR?

I'd be worried if I was Stu. RB and JT might want a piece of his coffee shop action and want to introduce their own coffee shops into his business.   The theoretical and tongue-in-cheek RBJT propos

I think it raises some valid questions:

Did the item get passed by the news editor for including in the news?

Did Mr Cain write the story?

Is it usual policy to advertise the ticket prices etc. of such an event in a news bulletin?

Can anyone else, outside of the the stations family and friends, get the same deal?

There are far more questions than that!

 

Is mobile mike really there, or has he just pre-recorded his comments to be submitted later?

Does he work for 3failing-morons, or lack of energy?

When, if ever, will he get a life?

Will it ever occur to him that MR listeners (far more than the other stations combined) actually like its output?

Does his carer know he has access to the Internet?

Voice tracking is not new and is used by Manx Radio anyhow.

Not new at all, I realise that, but some people are bandying it about in some sort of eureka wonderment.

 

And yes, Manx Radio do indeed use it, but as I said, there is a time and place and it can be over used.

I got far more editorial comment in IOM Newspapers courtesy of John Sherrocks and a comment by Terry Cringle than I ever got on Manx Radio, and on TH the vast majority of very few mentions of the coffee shop have been texts and emails from interested listeners.

 

Had they looked in and wondered whether it was open yet?

 

Valid comment - but we're still waiting for our landlords to finish the new frontage and fascia - part of their update of Exchange House generally.

It also raises the questions:

 

Why did Manx1Bloke stop posting last October and you started posting in January?

Are you and he the same person?

Is that why you're obsessed with Manx Radio?

Were you sacked and escorted from the building the same way he was?

Were the police called by MR about your behaviour too?

Listening to Stu today getting all nervous with callers in case they said something that "could get me into trouble", can I suggest the station invests in this time delay device which you say all uk radio stations seem to have

 

My point being, with all the money Manx Radio gets each year surely the management should provide the workers with the tools needed to to the job. And what happened if someone did say the wrong thing, or swear? Would the presenter have to take the can for it?

Nervous with just one caller, and I explained exactly why that was and my justification for not continuing into murky legal waters NOT covered by parliamentary privilege. A profanity delay might stop exactly that (bad language) but it would still be the responsibility of the presenter to decide what content might prove to be unsound, so it wouldn't make any difference. The presenter AND the radio station could be in trouble for 'publishing' slander - and since you object to paying 30p/week for the service anyway would you really want to spend more to have everything legalled?

No offence but there are two other Radio Stations on the Island. If you refuse to report what is in the Public Interest then mabye they will. Are the Government really likely to sue MR when they [WE] supply around 50% of their operating costs. It would seem an odd thing to do. It does seem that anything LIb Van say is greeted with somewhat negative response from MR. It is a shame that the only people who question anything Alan Bell and Co Min say have to suffer such derision. They can't be wrong all of the time, can they ?

I heard you today Stu, with the caller who was going on about things already being in the public domain, I thought you handled it very well and ended the call very politely too.

 

There is a woman presenter on a Radio 4 phone in program on Saturday afternoons that I sometimes listen to, she would do well to listen to the way you handled that guy today.

 

She often comes across as either too snooty or just downright rude when she tries to get someone off the air either because it is getting close to the bone or the caller is waffling.

Yeah there are two more radio stations that could report. One has an MLC on its board (and still a shareholder I think), and the other has an ex senior Treasury / DED employee on its board. That tells you all you need to know about how free the media really is here. Now were looking to merge all the little potentially conflicted businesses into one even bigger conflicted business to save money. Putin couldn't have done much better.

Putin may have just got rid of some of the protagonists via a quiet chat over a cup of special coffee................................

 

With Allan and Eddie its the special psychedelic Kool Aid they make them drink so they can trip out secure in their own smugness and sense of invincibility.

Manxie - my concern wasn't ever that IOMG would sue. To name Sefton shareholders in Tynwald when covered by parliametary privilege is one thing - to name them whilst potentially suggesting impropriety in a live broadcast is quite another.

 

Whether the other stations or the newspapers name names is a matter for them and their legal experts to mull over. I had to make a snap decision and chose a safety shot.
