Yerrrs. It was on the front page of the York Evening Press earlier this week. I'll see if anyone at work has a copy, I don't buy it myself.

I had the misfortune of hearing this looney interviewed on Radio 5 Live this evening.

He said he had spent years 'perfecting' his Formula 1 sound... sadly, the interviewer asked him to do it..... and it sounded just like a Formula 1 car.... from about 1954.

Is it me??????

Barry I heard it too, sounds like someone farting I thought... I guess its our won fault for listening to this awful 'PC' radio station, TalkSport much better.

The James Whale Show is the only thing worth listening to on that radio station - everything else is football football football :rolleyes: :mad:

Is Mike Dickin still on there? He's very much a petrolhead, certainly used to race (I think Atlantics back in the 70s).

What on earth is "PC" about Radio 5? I find it pretty entertaining.

As for Talk Sport, it's a real mixed bag. Some of the presenters are awful, like listening to an audio version of the Daily Mail, but on the other hand they did have excellent ball-by-ball coverage of the recent England cricket tour of South Africa.

I happen to like Radio 5 as well!

I heard his F1 car impression too. It was quite correct that he was arrested - but the charge was wrong, it should have been for "Impersonating a Formula 1 Car - Badly".

Add another :up: for 5 Live from me too. But then, as I said earlier, I don't have a lot of sporting options....

Mike D seems to have disappeared recently, don't know why. I knew he was a racer many years ago, but can't remember him myself. Unless he was the chap who had an Elden mk10 FF in the late 70s. I recall he came from Old Colwyn, and used this quite aged car pretty well for a number of years. From memory he was 'Michael Dicken', so whether he was/is Mike D from TalkSport I'm not sure. Anyone else know ???

I like Talk for the same reasons I like TNF, which, to me at least, is commonsense entertaining chat on a variety of subjects, mainly but not exclusively sport related. I find 5 Live far too 'prissy' and too keen not to offend anyone I'm afraid, and too many wimmin presenters...

Mike Dickin is a late night presenter now. I think he used to be on earlier in the day, but I never listened during the day, so I really don't know much about that.

Mike Mendoza, James Whale and Charlie Wolf are all good presenters as well, and do the late night chat shows, and I don't listen to any of the others, because they all talk about football.

Does that mean we won't be listening to the Archers' Omnibus on Sunday?

My vote is for no radio! It kills the art of constipation!

We can talk about football ourselves and even, dare I say it, motor racing!!!!!

There was an obituary for Mike Dickin in today's "Independent".
