The 'Morning Depress'

Yes I know it’s only been two days, but for me, it’s already two days too many.

Joburg was promised a “new show”. The team was “hard at work” for three weeks working on “the new show”.

So where is it? Jeremy Mansfield has gone and 94.7’s new morning show is nothing but a rehashed copout of the same old boring radio-morning-show-recipe.

There are only two things “new” about the Morning Express show: the name, and the studio. Other than that, it’s the same old same old. As the old saying goes, “the more things change, the more they stay the same”.

It’s news on the hour (as it should be), sports at half the hour, the “Money Minute” at five to seven, “Wackhead’s Window” at ten past seven, the “Stupid Sports Joke” at eight thirty, and the “Global High” at ten to nine. It’s exactly the same regurgitated slop that we’re being subjected to all over again - the same show, minus Jeremy Mansfield.

The new “Morning Express” should be called the “Morning Depress” as it’s nothing short of a big farce. I give it less than a year before the plug is pulled on this poor excuse for radio entertainment.

Do listen to the radio on your bike?

Just joking... Heard the new breakfast show as well this morning, and it did sound the same as usual. Though JM was on leave again. Work is 3 kms from my house, so usually I only hear part of a song, advertisement or partial news story before I get there...

If 94.7 can get Redi Direko it would be the morning show to listen to (she is currently on 702 from 09H00 - take a listen - very clued up and also very good sense of humor).

Whackhead and Jenny have long pass their sell by date.

Where can we vote for change?

:angry: :evil:
Agree with these views.!
... like many things, the Highveld management just did not have the courage to make a total change, but opted for what we are left with... luckily there are options!
About voting, is that still an option?

Respect... Ek luister TuksFM gewoonlik op 'n Saterdae as hulle die top40 doen. Op Varsity het ek nog verstaan wat daai studente praat, maar vandag het ek nie 'n clue waaroor hulle te kere gaan nie. Hulle musiek is ROCKING, maar die DJs is either hoog, dronk, hungover of aan die slaap.

Ek like dit as hulle vir ou Barney die Dinosaur :evil: op Maandae uit sy hok laat. Daai ou wil ook nie oud word nie, en hy maak nou maar eenmaal uit van harde musiek.

Die dinge wat hulle partykeer kwyt raak sit wel 'n smile op die gesig. :)

Op die langpad op 'n Sondag terug van die skoonouers af, is niks beter as 702 nie. B)
