SGS with MJ on CC

Our Samuel is taking further steps into the world of talk radio by doing a lengthy phone interview with Mike Jeffreys on 2CC at the moment – apparently the people at RiotACT “don’t like him”.

Jeffreys doesn’t like RA, either, but it’s harder to get upset about that.

[ED – And a big hello to the 2CC people who might be wandering over as a result. It’s not that we don’t like the idea of Sam, just the implementation. Oh, and commercial talkback, can’t speak for anyone else but in my opinion Laws, Jones, and anyone who wants to be like them are bottomfeeders.

PS. I’m deeply hurt that Sam thinks we don’t like him after all the work we did campaigning for his prestigious blog awards]

I can’t believe all 3 of 2CC’s listeners all post here!

(OK, I’ll admit I listen to the Boz and Brandy sports fest from 6-8…)

I heard SGS’s comments this morning – something made me turn the dial and sure enough there was SGS (a replay from yesterday).

I for one was pissed because I NEVER attacked SGS and for him to think that everyone who posts on the RA hates him is BS.

Someone get on MJ’s show and set the record straight. I would but I have to be at work and drop off kids etc.

I think that this should be the end of us all talking about SGS, it only “fuels” the bitching (I’ve had mine today) and it really isn’t worth it.

Mike shouldn’t let his exposure to nerdy SGS types cloud his judgement.

I’m not very nerdy. Although I do spend all my time sitting in front of my computer, it’s what I call being at work. An astute observation that I spend a lot of time sitting in front of my computer, especially when regarding an online-blog.

Intellect sometimes, is relative.

i’d say i had more experience in international affairs and other related areas than the entire staff of his pissant radio station.

i second the interview idea.

a bunch of nerdy boys who spend all their time sitting in front of their computers

Last time I checked I wasn’t a boy (and it wasn’t that long ago). Nerdy perhaps, but definitely not male.

Yes, Mike gave his blessing to RiotACT this morning. Phew….I thought for a while we were going to be placed on his black list. Sammy is such a trouble maker LOL

Allow me to clarify/correct something in my original entry.

Mike Jeffreys has just been on again this morning declaring his support for RiotACT – my comment yesterday that “Jeffreys doesn’t like RA, either” was more to do with his description of RA posters as a bunch of nerdy boys who spend all their time sitting in front of their computers.

In short, he thinks RiotACT is okay, but we’re a bunch of dweebs……or something.

Sorry about that. I should have been clearer in the first place.

Uh oh … apparently looking for loooove again. Sent to me by a TSSH lurKer.


Can’t we be both bored public servants and well qualified?

And some of us may be very busy public servants who like to surf the ‘net on our lunch breaks (those of us who haven’t traded them away in our AWAs, anyway).

If this site had the traffic of SlashDot (or even TSSH), I’d be worried about all the bored Camberrians. As it is, this is more a comfortable pub where the locals pop in for a pot on the way home, giving the village idiot* a good-natured punch in the arm as they walk past, than a Hillsong-esque cult teaming with masses of lunatics, screaming for blood.

(Note to self: find some way to get SGS’s blog posted to SlashDot as a social experiment.)

*That’s probably an unfair analogy, but at this point I can’t un-think it up!

Oi erewego – I don’t umm, I errrr 🙂

Wish I’d heard it. Sounds like our boy is on his way.

Interesting comment on Grumpy Old Men last night slagging off the BBC for their obsession with being fair and balanced.

Thumper – what is the name of your band?

I started to listen to 2CC because of Sammy and am saddened to know I missed hearing him this morning. I wish he would come back.

if it’s umms and dead air you want you really need to start listening to some podcasts!

missed it this morning, a shame as I always tune in to 2cc for about 2 minutes, before I am inspired to turn it off again, on account of opinionated beat-ups with the mic,
Listen to 2xx if just for the ummms, dead air, reactionary propaganda and local music

ABC sycophant – moi? Hahahaha! Hippie station except for sport.

I heard the interview.

In Sam’s defence he didn’t ring in about RiotACT but Mike ‘shock-jock’ Jeffreys suggested to Sam that RiotACT “hated” him.

Our ‘wannabe shock-jock’ Samuel said that RiotACT didn’t like him because of his infatuation with commercial talk-back radio.

Also, according to the interview all RiotACT contributors are ABC sycophants. This can’t be true as I was listening (as I do every morning) to 2CC and loath the ABC.

The upside of the interview is that Mike believes Sam would eventually make-up with RiotACT and we’ll all live happily ever after!
