Haven’t done a media post for a while, because, nobody really cares about these awful creatures anymore. But perhaps there are still some questions to be posed in post Riddance Radio. Firstly, Russell Woolf’s ABC 720 replacement John McGlue is just. Fucking. Terrible. Obviously nobody is going to be able to fake Rusty’s apparently genuine interest in the movement of traffic in the Northbridge tunnel, but McGlue is the most excruciatingly boring presenter helpfully coupled with a voice like Mark McGowan vacuuming a rug in the next room. He manages to drain any interest you might have in any topic no matter how ostensibly interesting. I guess the loss of Russell is the circumcision industry’s gain. Now not sure what nickname to give McGlue. He’s playing Nanna Nap to Geoff Hutchinson’s Nanna. I’m going to go with John “Slumber King” McGlue unless others have something better.
And seriously, what’s the deal with 6PRacist? Would it kill them to hire a presenter that doesn’t sound like he is being sodomised and strangled at the same time? Paul Nurry and Bob Maumill pioneered the choking granny vocal style, which now seems to have infected Gossage, Zempilas and Peter Bell. If you are an appalling journalist, having a terrible voice isn’t helping. Now Peter Bell sounds like a decent sort of guy, albeit one who appears to be trying to breath in some Lego , but I guess if you sign on to a station famous for being populated by total cunts – and this is after Riddance Sattler has been given the arse, then it does kind of compromise your image, obviously along with the rolling abortion that was the Dockers. Now Gossage seems ok too, but…wait , does anyone care? No? Then carry on not listening. Remember, McGlue should only be referred to as Slumber King from now on.
