Is anyone else upset at the change of format to the early morning show on BBC-CW local radio? Since they booted Shane O'Connor off we've had to put up with the "Trish & Jo" show, and I'm sorry, but this just doesn't cut it. There's rarely any music, no serious interviews (or at least none that I can take seriously) and to hear them constantly talking over each other does my head in! Sorry BBC but I've now stopped listening. Sad Anybody happy with the changes?

+1 Tony. Shane O'Connor was a very good presenter, a great show. Replaced by these two! Trish Adudu has to be the most irritating presenter on radio. Tune in to Birmingham WM 95.6 The Danny Kelly Show.

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

Trish Adudu was recently crowned "Best Programme Presenter" at the internal BBC Local Radio Awards. Says it all really.

I must totally agree with Mr D-Di. 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.

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.

Bob Brolly's band was called Calvary and his dad ran the Bowling Green.

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
