I love this show but will have to give this a miss, I cannot bear Linda Smith - just do not find her funny one little bit

I thought she was very unfunny on HIGNFY last week. Normally I don't mind her, but the stuff with Neil Kinnock was just tedious.

Don't mind her, It's Sandy Toskvig that gets on my nerves

I quite like Sandi Toksvig...

I've only kind of recently started listening to the radio, and often forget. It was really annoying when all the best jokes from the News Quiz showed up on hignfy...I know, I'm years behind everyone else on that.

Don't tend to like the sit coms they do - though I did like Trevor's World of Sport, it seemed much better than the tv series.

Some of the radio stuff is excellent beyond words, did you ever catch The Legend of Trombastardos or Old Harrys Game?

i agree - the whole programme ended up making you feel uncomfortable rather than amused.

I used to listen to the R4 comedy but it clashes with the beast's bath time and since she turned one she's developed a pathological fear fo the bath so the radio gets drowned out by the screams when we inflict this torture upon her.

We had tickets to go to the recording of the Now Show at the City Varieties in Leeds but were too jiggered to get there in the end.

I thought Paul Merton and Hislop looked uncomfortable too - there is a fine line between taking the mick and being blatantly rude

You talkin' to me?

If so. Nope. Never 'eard of them. I must turn on BBC Radio 7 a bit more now that I've worked out how the freeview tuner works, I think I've got some catching up to do.

I'm telling to anyone that'll listen

Food and the BBC are my favourite evangelical topics, I hope one day to have converted the whole world to growing fruit & veg and listening to Radio 4.

This week's HIGNFY was hosted by Neil Kinnock. Will Self continually insulted him, needled him for answers to pointed questions and picked at him for going to the lords and Linda followed suit. Both of them talked over Kinnock and spoiled the scripted jokes. Merton and Hislop were uncharacteristically quiet.

A hypocritical old windbag like Kinnock deserves all he gets if he puts himself in that hot seat I won't say the wit was sparkling, but I found it funny.
