Dave Kilby on 666

By blindcommissioner - 8 September 2008 26

Does anyone know why David Kilby is back on 666 ABC radio?

I have left the local 666 and switched over to Radio National because I was just sick and tired of Ross Solly.

I stumbled on 666 this morning and was pleasently surprised to hear David’s voice.

Has anyone got any idea on how long we can enjoy this welcome pleasure?

Oh David Kilby drives me spare. Really boring irrelevant triva and music that only really old people listen to. I am in my 30’s but I think Kilby’s most responsive audience would be in their late 80’s.

I miss Chris Ulman. Ross does tend to go after the issues that no one has an issue with. LOL

I miss with a passion Rod Quinn for Drive. Louise Maher is too much fluff and overly silly.

Try again.

David Kilby, that is Mr. Kilby to kids who went to Charnwood Primary, educated and used music to do so. We all thought he was the best teacher, ever. He played oldies on the radio, and we found ourselves humming along – even though the music was written before most of us were born. He was an awesome teacher, and a great role model.

He is a welcome change to the 666 lineup.

As long as Andrea Close is nowhere near a microphone I can handle the 30 mins between radio national and getting to work.

I’m a relatively recent convert to 666 so Kilby is new to me, but if that was him this morning then I thought he was a total waste of oxygen. Half an hour’s talkback on names and aphorisms in the last week before caretaker period, following the WA election and two by-elections of major significance? Really? THAT’s what he’s using to fill his air-time?

(Of course, I hit the snooze button the regulation five or so times, so I may have missed something of significance in the nine-minute intervals – but every time it came back on it was the same irrelevant drivel, so I sort of doubt it).

Overheard 1:41 pm 08 Sep 08

I stopped listening to 666 in the mornings a long time ago, partly because I don’t need traffic news to get to work. But also because Solly’s style of interviewing just used to grate on me no end. And the way he’d latch on to some semi-issue and then want to talk to everyone who had some peripheral interest in the matter until I was screaming at the radio, ‘Enough, already!’ and praying for a musical interlude.

And on that note (boom tish), while David Kilby is interesting and engaging enough, while I like my music non-mainstream-ish, I just found his selection just too esoteric for my ear. Haven’t heard him in this breakfast incarnation.

Oh, and possibly for the first time ever, I caught 20 minutes-ish of Mark Parton on 2CC on Friday afternoon. He had the head of the ACT Electoral Commission on air chatting about the wherefores and whyfores of Parton being on air. (Stop me if that was covered elsewhere.)

Ross manages to get me out of bed and out to walk the dogs…can’t be all bad :-0

Totally agree, Ross Solly has totally turned me off 666 during the week. Surely the ABC is aware of how unpopular he is?! I have never heard of anyone who actually enjoys listening to him.

Ross Solly lost me with his support of the roo protesters. Even if you’re dumb enough to support them, displaying your bias every time the issue comes up on a radio show gets tiresome.

Ross has his good moments, but unfortunately they’re few and far between. His leaden attempts at sensationalism have my partner swearing at the radio and reaching for the pacific islands war club that decorates the loungeroom wall. Enjoy David K while he’s around.

jakez 12:16 pm 08 Sep 08

David Kilby is great value. I’ll be listening while he is back on.

Another vote for David.

Ross is a real lightweight. David, with someone a bit harder hitting for the political stuff would bring me back to 666.

Sammy 10:56 am 08 Sep 08

Indeed, Solly has new offspring, and I believe Kilby is around for another fortnight.

crabb 10:07 am 08 Sep 08

Ross Solly’s partner had a baby last week. I imagine David is here for a short period only.
