Richard and I had insulted him in the past, but until you watch him work, it’s easier to dismiss what he does, which is generate an atmosphere in which he is comfortable working. Which is precisely what we do. It doesn’t mean you have to like him, but you have to accept the comparison. (I know for a fact that many listeners will not be able to connect with what we do either – you either make it easy or you don’t.) it’s pointless to criticise, especially as circumstance has allowed George to depart before he was dismissed. I’m sure he will enjoy an illustrious career in television.
Anyway, listen to our podcast here. This was our producer Uncle Henry’s last show, so we salute him. He’s been a calming presence over the last 15 weeks for our cheeky, boundary-broaching madness. We get next Saturday off, as it’s 6 Music’s wall-to-wall Glastonbury coverage, which, pointedly, includes the return of Adam & Joe for three days only. It seems, for now, that we are safe in our once-temporary slot. Good.
