Try listening to the "Gardening Phone-in" on Sunday morning... inane music played interspersed with the odd caller on gardening topics.

 

If callers/emails are not forthcoming, surely it's not beyond the wit of producers/presenters to plan advice tips, jobs for the week, etc., rather than broadcasting some of the drivel that masquerades as music.

To be fair I think they draw the speeching out when they are awaiting incoming callers, I assume the traffic news is contractual I agree its a waste of time though.

Think you're right,  same when a caller gets the presenters back up, they can just say "got to go to the news or weather". The one thing that really annoys me is when they give the traffic news and play that annoying music in the background,  people on the way to work or whatever  in the morning  when they need traffic news , and this distraction, on five live too btw.

The jingle at the start and end will contain the signal so cars with Traffic Alerts enabled will pick it up and automatically put it on. the end jingle contains the signal to say its ended and go back to the previous station.

Football Heaven is still a great show and the live commentaries are 2nd to none.

Good to hear Toby doing his totally impartial and unbiased broadcast about Brexit this morning (on behalf of the Remainers) 🙄
