    Fair enough - I won't quote, but I have found the article he did on 'Shock Jocks'. It's 14 years old, but unbelievably he had the prescience to say that a jock would use that Live is Life tune to poor effect. Doesn't Georgie use that tune these days?

    I feel I may have stepped into something out of the fevered imagination of Franz Kafka (or the late, great Patrick McGoohan).

    Who is Number One?

    Barry Lally I do find it strange that your appearance on the boards always coincides with very heavy modding and bannings. I do hope you are not naughtily reporting postings for no reason whatsoever? Because that makes you a very cheeky monkey.

    Don't know about who is number one? More like who's next?

    Still can't believe the BBC can act like this. I'm shaking my head and thinking about all the bad things they've been involved in over the past few years. It seem incongruous that those same people can now sit in judgment of others on plain old bulletin board for goodness sake.

    I don't know what FoO said that got him banned, only that my comments were deleted along with his. I certainly know that mine contained nothing defamatory. Are BBC employees so sacrosanct that they can't even be mentioned or asked about? Don't we all pay their wages to some extent?

    Speaking of which where is Jane our host? I asked her virtually the same question a day or so ago and the silence is deafening. I thought she was supposed to be part of the new regime. Seems like "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" to me right now.

    This does all smack of amateurish crisis management of the most ludicrous kind. How many "fresh starts" are they going to have before they figure out that all they need to do is simply treat people with a bit of respect?

    Hey motorzone,

    I've been accused of illegal and immoral acts time and time again. The BBC can't possibly know exactly how close I have been in my career to the courts and related systems, yet still think it's OK to do this. I think it's done out of general ignorance rather than anything spiteful, but then everyone gets tied up in all sorts of knots and they can't pull back.

    However, over time people have clearly been singled out - often at the behest of a fifth columnist - and then they're gone. Billly, Mozo, Geoff, Matt, Barry, many others and now Fist have gone. At least as damaging is the effect this has on people who stick around for a while, see what way the wind blows and then disappear, disappointed that the BBC acts in such a way.

    In the meantime, there’s been a little comment on here tonight from someone who has been a regular presence on the show in question, hid his real identity, got found out and was invited back with no questions asked.

    You couldn’t make it up.

    If you feel the need for someone to delve into George Lamb's inability to be a decent dj.....and related issues, I'd suggest strobes at private-eye.co.uk.

    Given that it was reported on in the last issue and involves an accountable, publicly-financed organisation, they may well be interested.

    Ditch him, he's rubbish. Bet he doesn't do vinyl, either. (less doesn't than can't, probably)

    If we're quoting Won't Get Fooled Again then let me add that I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky for I know that the hypnotised never lie.

    And it was all going so well here for a while, with a friendly new host and the BBC Trust survey being flagged up.

    But then the eminence grise returns without a hint of contrition or apology and before you know it, posts are being removed for reasons difficult to fathom, and the Mighty Fist is sent to Siberia for, I assume, reasons related to the published copy of a certain magazine. And all this when the OFSTED inspectors are about.

    So Barry, welcome back, I bet you are dead pleased to see Fist all banned seeing as he found out who you where. You and your former producer (who we cannot name at the moment for fear of the post being removed as it is clearly highly sensitive information, despite being mentioned daily on the GL show) must be very pleased with yourself.

    In the spirit of openness and inclusivity that the BBC likes to pay lip service to can you explain why you blatantly lied about who you where to Fist on these boards?

    I appreciate your response will be in Pidgin English (and not that’s not how you spell pigeon)

    “This does all smack of amateurish crisis management of the most ludicrous kind. How many "fresh starts" are they going to have before they figure out that all they need to do is simply treat people with a bit of respect?”

    The trouble is Motorzone I get the distinct impression we are conversing with a bunch of early 20 something’s who have been landed with the message boards/new meeja end of the BBC without those a little older and wiser understanding the implications of letting loss your most junior of employees to mix it with the grown ups. Coupled with the phenomenal turnover over staff measuring their stint in terms of weeks and not even months, let alone years you get this crass inconsistency and panicked approaches. Its quite easy to play the regulars as someone like myself gets quite easily riled when they keep on taking off posts that we know darn well are not against the rules, so keep taking them off and they can then whack you with “spamming” and then ban you.

    Still all this is going to make for an even better story on Private Eye - which unfortunately could of course lead to them just closing the forum as the truth tends to get a bit embarrassing for the beeb.

    And also congratulations to Steve Lamacq and Stuart Maconie for being nominated.

    This years Rising Star is a singing traffic reporter on Kerrang, so the standard is being maintained for this prestigious honour.

    While browsing the BBC Trust website I have just found a possible reason for George Lamb's show having not been pulled:

    "Only if the Trust is satisfied that any likely adverse impact on the market is justified by the likely public value of the change, will the proposal go forward for consultation."

    Therefore, the BBC are just helping other radio stations! The removal of Lamb from our airwaves will see an migration of listeners from these non publicly funded stations back to 6Music.

    i noticed theres a distinct lack of mention/nomination for 6music/lamb in the various categories (including the programming category) - maybe this is proof that the current 6music playlist/daytime music policy is stale, unoriginal and repetitive.

    SORT IT OUT! i dont know, but i would say that as little as three years ago, 6music would have been regularly nominated for the programming award due to it being completely different from anything out there apart from xfm (which had too many repetitions and adverts for its own good)

    Surely last year’s Rising Star should comfortably expect to be at least nominated for a proper award this year. Something seems to have gone wrong. I would have thought he’d definitely have had a shot at Interview of the Year.

    On other matters:

    I’ve listed below just 5 of the times this year that we’ve been advised of a new leaf being turned over by hosts/CCT/interactive – yet here we are with more bannings and no feedback. When are the promises to be kept? What have we done so very wrong to be treated in this fashion?

    What have we done wrong? They gave us George Lamb and we didn't like it, like the ungrateful children that we are!

    To quote Dexy's (something I've never done before, promise)

    It starts off just joking
    and then they stop talking to you
    and that's the worst thing of all
    The worst thing of all

    But which one? I mean the Ray Davies one was a doozy, or the time he did Late of the Pier, or the Stephin Merritt one, or the Cat Power one, or the Super Furry Animals one or the interview with some bloke on the phone that ended with Lamb comparing travellers with industrial waste*...so many to choose from.


    *though it's all right, because old Georgie-boy apologised "if anyone was offended by his comments" (not you'll notice FOR his comments, no, just if WE were offended by them). So now the BBC can pretend it never happened, and OFCOM can ignore it because he 'apologised'.

    All of those by themselves are worth £142.50 of anybody's money, I say.
