I tuned in for an hour or so after the England game last Tuesday. I have to say after reading the tweets on twitter I already had a brief idea of what it would be like – and I didn’t see anything to change my mind.
Parry would appear to be the station’s main man and he was hosting the show I watched. It had some of the usual Parry madness, at one stage we had the sight of Mike dressed up as a Priest and calling himself Pastor Parry and giving us a mad lecture on some of his crazy views, while holding an open bible.
It was also a bit on the edge with Skype link up’s to contributors to the show, some of which appeared to be in various differing states, including people who had perhaps had one or two too many to be live on the air.
It looked a work in progress and for the time being I don’t think I’ll be tuning in again in a hurry.
The station appears to be the brainchild of Kelvin MacKenzie, the former editor of the Sun newspaper. Mackenzie has plenty of experience in this brand of entertainment as he was the main driving force behind Talksport in it’s early days, during the rebranding from Talk Radio to it’s current format.
