Does anyone ANYONE enjoy hearing Steve Wright sing along to the records on his R2 "Big" Show?

It gives me the rage and makes me turn over immediately.

I can only assume that regular listeners must enjoy it or he would have been murdered sacked by now

So, confess, do you smile indulgently when he does it. Or do you want to kill him dead?

I can't stand him.

snozzlemaid Mon 23-Jun-14 15:37:50

I can't stand it either or anything else he does. We have it on at work, but thankfully I finish at 2.30 so only have to endure half an hour.

Ah...SingAlongaWrighty...maddening...last of the old skool dj's, reminds me of many years ago but really can't he be shuffled off to Hertfordshire Fm or something...grr

MardyBra Mon 23-Jun-14 15:44:53

No. He's a dick. I yell fuck off at the radio whenever he spoils a perfectly good record.

ohdobuckup Mon 23-Jun-14 15:45:06

And who was on recently as a stand in, Lauren Laverne? She was very good indeed

Timeandtune Mon 23-Jun-14 15:45:13

I think the only person who enjoys it is Steve himself.

MardyBra Mon 23-Jun-14 15:45:36

Oh and he can fuck off with all his twee pronunciations about the interweb and other stuff I can't think of right now.

Can't stand him and instantly put R1 on when I get in the car if he's on.

Why do they still use him? He's awful!

MardyBra Mon 23-Jun-14 15:46:27

He really does need to retire. But please don't put Chris Irritating Tarrant on instead, please BBC.

bettybyebye Mon 23-Jun-14 15:47:58

I cannot understand how he still has a show, hate him! Makes my ears bleed

Lottapianos Mon 23-Jun-14 15:49:19

He's a typical bore who thinks he is utterly hilarious and really wacky instead of just tedious and nauseating. How he has any listeners at all is beyond me.

Morethanalittlebitconfused Mon 23-Jun-14 15:49:39

Can we start a campaign to boot him off the air? grin

TheFantasticMrsFox Mon 23-Jun-14 16:04:16

Ooh yes more, can we have badges? grin

sunev Mon 23-Jun-14 16:07:22

Can't stand him, so egotistical. Always switch off when he's on.

BitOutOfPractice Mon 23-Jun-14 16:09:49

I'm prepared to make a placard.

sonlypuppyfat Mon 23-Jun-14 16:13:18

I tuned to absolute radio the DJs are not much better but I enjoy the music more. Steve Wright needs telling he's just not funny.

Morethanalittlebitconfused Mon 23-Jun-14 16:13:29

And balloons

kim147 Mon 23-Jun-14 16:13:37

Yet somehow he's been on Radio 2 forever.

Maybe he has some dirt on management?

member Mon 23-Jun-14 16:16:34

He's got something on someone at the Beeb I'm sure, he is so crap.

Thankfully he seems to be away a lot of the time & we get Patrick Keilty, Jo Whiley, Chris Tarrant etc filling in.

Actually, there is a stand in so often that I wonder if he's ill in some way.

ImperialBlether Mon 23-Jun-14 16:17:12

Chris Evans does it too. It should be a sackable offence.

Morethanalittlebitconfused Mon 23-Jun-14 16:21:12

I love Patrick kielty and wish he'd get the breakfast slot. Him or dermot o'leary

Ladyfoxglove Mon 23-Jun-14 16:22:19

I don't understand how he still has a show. he's rubbish. Nearly as bad as Chris Evans.

Everything that comes out of his mouth gives me the rage.

Even his stupid comments on the 15 year old ToTP2 that was on at the weekend made me want to hurl things at the telly. More than not being funny, he was just bloody rude and personal.
