I used occasionally to tune in to Cov and Warwickshire Radio until I heard Annie Othen .... could never stand her when she was on Mercia Sound. I don't know if she is still on and I don't really care. As for Bob Brolly, can't stand him either, although I know he does a lot of good work as I believe his brother is handicapped. My Irish neighbours love him and used to go on what I thought of as the Holiday from Hell, when they booked a whole floor of a hotel somewhere abroad together with Brolly and all his pals! Yuk !! Actually I do enjoy Network Gold on the 94.8 frequency on a Saturday night as, although mostly a Classic FM listener, I enjoy music from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s too.

Why Brolly is allowed to broadcast is one of the mysteries of life and its largely because of him that I never listen to Coventry radio. Brolly was once a singer in a group called New City Sound and I had the misfortune to hear him sing in the Bowling Green pub.
Bob Brolly's band was called Calvary and his dad ran the Bowling Green.

On 16th Feb 2016 6:15pm, MisterD-Di said: I have found BBC C&W to be virtually unlistenable for a long time. The only time we bother with it is for commentary on City matches. Even the Friday phone-in has gone down the pan these days, especially with Linnell involved. I have heard some of the dreadful presenters on the station, such as Brolly and the Adudu woman and I have no idea who told them they were suitable for broadcasting. Otherwise the only radio station we listen to, and that is quite a lot of listening, is Gold. It is now on DAB and has a minimum of natter and drivel, just lots of decent music from our era. Thumbs up
Agree with you on this Mr D. Great station, Gold.

Wave Hi all Wave, As I was listening to the clues being given for this mornings "treasure hunt", I recognised one of our forum members voices, for the Bill & Bob location. That was exciting. Big grin
