we lost ed doolan sadly recently

David Jennings, the head of local and regional programmes for BBC West Midlands, said: "Ed was a broadcasting giant loved by generations of radio listeners in the West Midlands.

"On his daily show, he was the people’s champion - tireless in his pursuit of truth and fairness for all.

“Ed faced dementia with indomitable spirit and bravery, raising awareness of the condition and continuing to broadcast on BBC WM every week.”

Mr Doolan was appointed MBE for services to broadcasting and charity and was the first person to be awarded honorary doctorates by the University of Birmingham, the University of Aston and Birmingham City University.

#258

Bizarre double-standards of the time - plays fabulously louche sexually ambiguous character in TV series then gets binned-off when it turns out he is actually fabulously louche and sexually ambiguous IRL…


#259

Quite.

We are an awful species


#260

Not entirely. There’s two sub-species - the self appointed moral and hypocritical (particularly the church and the media press ); and then everyone else.
