“Not so white vantastic mate!”

published 13/09/2010

Live footy

Football tlak 24/7 in the summer

Talksport are in a good place right now after surviving falling revenues. Their commercial rivals in the likes of Heart FM, Absolute and Capital Radio are not so healthy and the squeeze on advertising revenue in the recession is starting to hurt. The recent re-branding of local radios under the...

“Not enough shots on target”

published 18/01/2001

Watt, Brazil, Boycott

Whale, Dickin

It is easy to knock Talk Sport, but it does offer a relief from the over-bearing Home Counties morass of Five Live. In its favour it has Tom Watt, ex-Eastenders and until recently a daily fixture on the air. He epitomises what it is to be a bloke without being a Lad - informed, passionate and...

“Women stick clear...”

published 10/05/2001

great sports coverage and chat

internet radio sometime s-l-o-w

Women stick clear… well not because I’m sexist I just don’t think many of the shows are catering for women! Whether this is a good thing or bad thing I don’t really care to be honest! This kind of discrimination doesn’t bother me! Feminists have bigger battles to...

“Wanna Fight?”

published 16/09/2000

This is simply the best radio station in the UK at the present moment in time. It used to be better of course when it was simply Talk Radio ie. before it became predominantly a sport station during the daytime hours, but then who am I to argue. If you are not a sports fan...and I can't stomach it...

Best show - The Human Zoo

Otherwise mainly football

I started putting the radio on at night to help me get to sleep, but now that I’ve found The Human Zoo on Talk Sport listening to the radio isn’t having the desired effect. The basic premise is that anyone can call and go straight to air without the calls being screened beforehand...

Interesting/can participate/wide ranging

Football holds too high a priority sometimes

Perhaps its an age thing, I don't know. What I do know is that now that I'm forty something(although still don't quite realise it) when listening to the radio I like to listen to something interesting rather than the some 20 or 30 current pop songs being played over and over(that does make me...

“lISTEN TO TOMMY BOYD”

published 19/12/2000

GOOD

NOT THAT GOOD

I don’t want to be critical on Talk sport, but I don’t think it can ever reach Radio 5 live, it can try but never reach them. The cricket coverage was good, it was made interesting but I think that was more down to Geoffrey Boycott that anyone else. But, other than that their sport is much...

“Great for sport and chat”

published 05/12/2000

Excellent for football and chat

Sometimes rather dry

Being addicted to football, this is one of my favourite radio stations and as such I tend to tune into Tom Watt's 'The Season Ticket' (weekdays 4:00 - 7:00) quite a lot when I've got bored with Radio 1. This is an excellent programme with a wide range of topics, callers and guests on the show...

No music!

I tuned in to Talk Sport completely by accident one night and was hooked. I heard a presenter say the most terrible things to a caller who had rang up to make a comment, and the presenter was cutting him off, shouting him down, arguing vehemently, not letting the caller get his point across....I...

“'Radio Prune Juice'”

published 05/08/2000

Good for a laugh

Neither one thing or the other

Has anyone listened to Kelvin Mackenzie's Talk Sport since the transition from Talk Radio? Well, perhaps the answer from most of you is no or talk what? Yes, that's the feeling I get when I listen to the radio equivalent of The Sun- I'm in a select club with a membership of one. Not quite true...

“Yawn!”

published 14/09/2000

Ian Collins and James Whale

The other 18 hours of the day

Oh no! The winter's coming on! What *are* Talk Sport going to do? There's no cricket, no golf, no... anything! Well apart from football. Oh dear. Well. I've listened to Talk sport since it started, and the only decent programmes arte the non-sport ones, such as Ian Collins and James Whale. Most...

“All sport, no talk”

published 19/12/2000

No shortage of personalities on the station

Stationhas majorly lost it's way.

Talksport began life as the UK's first natonwide phone in radio station, TalkRadio UK (TRUK). This was a break from the norm of local talk radio, a medium usually reserved for old people to complain about hats and the price of birdseed. TRUK provided a younger outlook, a more open and daring...

James whale show, good sport coverage

Would prefer FM reception to AM to improve quality

I`ve been listening to Talksport (formerly TalkRadio) for about four years now and have only ever listened to the James Whale show, and when there is sports coverage I`m interested in listening too. I think the station deserves a big recommendation just for having James Whale on at night (between...

“Talk at the Test”

published 11/08/2000

Coverage is better than no coverage

Too much time dedicated to plugging sponsors

Whilst as a cricekt fan I welcome any coverage of test cricket over the airwaves, I would have to say that Talk Radio / Talk Sport's coverage of Test Cricket over teh winter was by no means anything like as good as TMS. The most annoying thing was the frequency of hearing about regus.com...

I used to listen to Talk Radio a few years ago when Ceaser the Geezer was around, and found it funny, evocative and thought-provoking. Then, when he left, I just got bored and switched off. Just recently, however, I have rediscovered the newly branded TalkSport, and found that the title is...
