Sad news of Rachael Bland passing away this morning, it's often been jokily remarked on this thread about how obsessed 5Live sometimes seem to be with cancer and general morbidness but I think the way this woman dealt with her initial diagnosis and recent terminal prognosis has been genuinely inspiring and heartbreaking to see in equal portion.

I think the you, me and the big C podcast is one of the best pieces of broadcasting I've heard on the genre and she leaves a great legacy with that to her little son and to others in a similar position to her.

It irritates me immensely that the diagnosed always need to be seen to be fighting, battling or winning the fight or kicking the Big C's butt. It's no such thing...you suffer, sometimes immensely then you'll probably die sometimes prematurely, get over it.

fair enough, can think of a million other things to get irritated about first though.

Well there you go, I'd simply rather not wallow or indulge in someone elses suffering whether they want to tell it or not. Other than their immediate family and friends it really should be no one elses business and they should keep it that way but hey everybody wants to tell their story.

Nearly one year on, Riley hasn't been heard from at all. Most odd.

He was accused of drunkenly groping Fogarty (I know, I know). I have no idea if he did or not but its the BBC and he's a man so obviously as guilty as fuck.

Fogarty? She’s a brassy old boiler, is that why she left for LBC? Campbell did say after she left that she was a real hard nut and that she told him to fuck off when he made a joke. Perhaps he knows what we feel about him.

She just said it again on the 4am sports news. :shock: No production noticed it earlier obviously. Didn't catch the name. If I was on twatter, would twat them.

Has anyone heard this: 'The Squad with Nick Bright'. It's on at midday on Sunday. Perhaps the worst thing I have EVER heard. Christ.

I prefer the sound of a whistling kettle to both.

The overnight sports bulletins are recorded at midnight and played out on the hour and half hour until 5am. If there’s something live on they’ll do an update and say ‘for the rest of the sports news here’s.......’

So you don't listen to Talksport then? There's a new low there everyday.
Listen to Talksport and let it be a lesson to you

Five Live is worse than Talksport now. Some achievement!
