Living Legend Tony Blackburn faces twat

How embarrassing.  This is the short interview that continuity announcer Lucy Jones made with National Hero Tony Blackburn after he had presented an award at the annual radio wankfest, the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards.

Can’t find my brain

That’s when people from the radio industry present awards to people from the radio industry because people from the radio industry want to stick their tongues up other people from the radio industry.  It is of no consequence to ordinary listeners except that a constipated sounding man’s voice will probably spend the next year announcing that the show/station/presenter they are listening to won some award that will mean nothing to the listener.

So, Lucy staggered up to our hero, and initially stumbling over her words, proceeded to gush like a 12 year old, with one of those instantly annoying voices like a 12 year old, about the awards, and asked Mr B a few questions.  Immediately it became obvious she knew nothing about him and had done no research. She adopted the tone of an ignorant do-gooder talking at a senile dementia patient in an old folk’s home.  Cringe. Does she always talk to older people like this?

Completely unaware that living legend Tony Blackburn was one of the pioneering adopters of social media and was using Twitter long before it became a ‘must use’ for radio stations and media personalities, including being one of the first using Periscope, she spoke at him like he’d never even seen a mobile phone.

How rude. How stupid. How ignorant.

But how calm and patient poor Tony was with her. A proper gentleman.

Here’s her masterpiece:

  1. Or maybe something happened before the interview which you know nothing about, resulting in Lucy not being able to talk about anything topical, such as the current legal action being taken by Tony against the BBC?

    And Tony didn’t win an award, he was just there to hand one out.
