    Chris Evans has a somewhat unique ability that perplex’s me...I cannot make my mind up if I can’t stand him, find him annoying or quite like him on the radio? It’s easier with TV, I can’t watch him as he just looks creepy, however when it comes to Radio I enjoy some of the stuff he does but find myself also swearing at the Radio telling him to F**k up when he prattles on! And don’t get me started with his acolytes fawning over him, just read the weather and sport and get back in your box gimps...:cursing:

    Is it just me?

    No, it's not just you.

    I can't have Wireless 2 on when he's on, have to turn it off.

    There is still a Radio 2, I thought it had closed down years ago

    I feel like that.... but listen anyway!
    It’s either habit, laziness or a mixture of both?

    Worst thing radio 2 ever did.

    It’s still all the same DJ’s except for Wogan, they just shuffle all the rest about the various slots, you could switch back on after ten years and hardly notice the difference. :tongue:

    I'm like you.

    When he goes off on a flight of self-indulgence, he's terribly irritating. When he's not, he's actually a good broadcaster.

    I have grown up watching and listening to him, from the first shows on the wide awake club, to big breakfast and TFI Friday.
    He was very cutting edge 15-20 years ago, now he is less funny. But he does have a talent to address the audience that few others have.

    You just named my least favourite two radio presenters, utterly useless the pair of them, I automatically turn over when they appear, same goes for Jeremy Vine. Grrr.

    I do enjoy a bit of Liza Tarbuck though, cracking sense of humour and music taste.

    I have the same thing about Danny Baker. I'm not sure I like him but always end up listening to him on a Saturday while sorting breakfast.

    I love Danny Baker but I appreciate many don't. I used to love his BBC London show, which he got fired from.
    Chris Evans was his tea boy, so they are cut from the same cloth.

    Don't think he would lower himself to R2 but as soon as Melvyn Bragg comes on the radio I reach for the off switch

    Nothing to add, but I'm loving the autolinking the forum software has done.

    I am a fan of the guy, by coincidence we also owned one of his old cars about 10 years ago.
