Listening to Dead Ringers this lunchtime I was amused by a spoof on a tv programme about football (I have no interest and don’t watch it). The main, or only, guest was a rather thick sounding bloke with a very deep voice. I had no idea who this person was.
Just then the programme was interrupted by a sign saying that the signal had been lost.
Now I should explain here, on Saturdays I use Humax in order to make sure everything is ok to record my late night Danish thriller ‘The Killing’. The rest of the week I use the Manhattan because it is better and I don’t need to record.
I was annoyed but not surprised, the Humax is known for doing this from time to time so I just moved the channel one step and up came 5 Live broadcasting normally. Forgetting for a moment that I had changed channels I continued to listen to this excellent DR spoof. It was only when I looked up to change back that I realised that I had been listening to someone really interviewing Rio Ferdinand.
DR can be good and it can be less good, but this was brilliant.
