No. Especially when she starts playing wretched 'Cats' tunes.

Back2Two Sun 16-Mar-14 13:58:29

No. I wonder how many people actually do like it.

slartybartfast Sun 16-Mar-14 13:58:58

its her laugh, it sends me maaaaaaaaaaaad

RhinestoneCowgirl Sun 16-Mar-14 13:59:09

She's awful, and all name-droppery too...

Sid77 Sun 16-Mar-14 14:00:56

Oh it's hideous. Songs from awful 'shows' that haven't been heard of since 1947...

If you want to carry out the perfect murder, shut me in a room with Elaine Page and Steve Wright. I'd expire from rage.

SugarMiceInTheRain Sun 16-Mar-14 14:01:14

The laugh really grates but I do love musicals...

MrsDavidBowie Sun 16-Mar-14 14:01:50

I love it! But then I love musical theatre.
However Elaine's laugh is appalling and the Break a leg section should be abolished.

DelGirl Sun 16-Mar-14 14:05:09

I can't stand her, and her laugh is truly awful.

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Sun 16-Mar-14 14:05:54

Yanbu. She really gets on my nerves. The laugh itself is reason enough to switch off never mind the awful music.
I wish they would have Michael Ball instead. He is fab.

I just had to wash up in silence because EP is on and I can't be bothered to retune the radio!

I really, really, can't stand her

DMCWelshCakes Sun 16-Mar-14 14:07:33

Hate it. But she did start with Bad Guys from Bugsy Malone today so I'm a bit conflicted.

Pickofthepops Sun 16-Mar-14 14:08:36

I like the gist of the show but she is dire and her laugh.

But what about anneka rice Saturday mornings and even sara cox sounds of 80's. They're both a bit grim. Specially anneka.

DorisAllTheDay Sun 16-Mar-14 14:12:50

I'm with Pickofthepops. I adore show tunes and I really want to like Elaine's programme. But she's sooooooo annoying - that laugh, and the way she refers to herself as 'EP'. I can't stand it.

Now, Pick of the Pops, there's a show to love. I'm listening to it at the moment on iplayer. 1979 this week. Takes me back to listening to Capital Radio before school in the mornings.

arp2411 Sun 16-Mar-14 14:13:06

I can't stand her goofy laugh! It's like nails on a chalkboard to me.

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Sun 16-Mar-14 14:17:48

I love Pick of the Pops too. I was listening to it yesterday.

Yes all the EP stuff is very annoying. And the break a leg section.

good idea about listening to pick of the pops on iplayer, or graham norton.
that might be my saviour.
and i do like michael ball's show,

what do you have to do to get rid of a radio presenter!

Pickofthepops Sun 16-Mar-14 14:20:49

The Craig Charles show from sat night is fab

MoominIsWaitingToMeetHerMiniMe Sun 16-Mar-14 14:21:16

Love musicals, hate Elaine Paige on Sunday with a passion.

Why does she never play music from the good musicals? There needs to be a Showtunes After Dark radio show, so we can have Avenue Q, RENT, Book of Mormon etc songs on.

Gooseysgirl Sun 16-Mar-14 14:21:36

I often listen in because I enjoy the tunes.. but Jesus that laugh is diabolical and eventually results in a change of stations chez Goosey

Pickofthepops Sun 16-Mar-14 14:21:48

The break a leg is car crash radio .. When they burst into song .. V amusing but scary

UncleT Sun 16-Mar-14 14:22:23

Her laugh (if one can call it that) is an affront to humanity. YANBU. Dreadful.

Gigondas Sun 16-Mar-14 14:22:56

She played something from some obscure musical with her in a motorbike that shut after a week. And as for break a leg dahling...
