It Shouldn't Happen to a Radio Presenter: No 1

19 Feb 2013 at 08:23

If you’re in the media, people inevitably have opinions about you. Some good, some bad.. They’re rarely shades of grey. The praise tends to be OTT (“You’re simply the greatest presenter ever to appear on the radio”) as does the criticism (“You have the voice of John Major crossed with a sleeping pill” – I did actually get that one!). But some of the emails you get are just downright funny. So with this post I am starting an occasional series called ‘It Shouldn’t Happen to a Radio Presenter’. Here’s an email I got this morning, on my LBC email. What I find amusing is that this person actually spent time writing it and deciding to send it. An interesting state of mind…

DEAR IAIN
HAS ANYONE EVER REMARKED THAT YOUR EYES ARE ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE EYES OF A WILD RAT,
I FIRST NOTICED THIS WHEN I SAW YOU ON SKY NEWS WITH JACQUI SMITH,
IT REALLY IS AMAZING!
REGARDS C

Note the use of capitals. I can, however, assure you it wasn’t written in green. I will leave it to others to decide on the state of my eyes.
