    Bad News

    Mark and Lard have been given the boot from Radio 1.

    They were/are the best Dj's on the station IMO.
    Always trying to sneak in some rock music, and dissing anything they didn't like.
    Unlike other Dj's, who just play the normal drivel without comment.

    I know what you mean, the best thing on Radio 1 by a mile.

    Very funny, don't think they will find anyone as funny to replace those two.

    stop






    carry on

    :( I agree.

    Sense of humour, different taste in music to generic dj types, they didn't fit into that awful style which when it first emerged was christened "zoo radio" - a gang of non-entities employed as producer, studio staff, newsreader etc. who all get involved in inane banter with the main dj.

    Long live Marc and Lard. Shire Horses rule!

    I believe that moron Evans started it with his gang of arris lickers.

    'Hey guys, I was so drunk last night'

    'Yeah Chris, whoaa, you're a real party animal'

    'Yes I am aren't I, I'm really good'

    'Yes Chris you are really good and not a complete tw@t or anything'

    Anyway, that silly girl in the morning and that fat git in the afternoon are simply unbearable.

    Got to the stage where I was forced to cough up £300 for a DAB radio for the motor. Planet Rock is a welcome change although they do occasionally play Phil Collins, which of course, is entirely gay.

    Radio1 have shaken things up - it's now a fat git in the morning and a silly girl in the afternoon...

    They are still unbearable.

    Just read the statement on the radio1 website.
    It says Mark will be joining Radio 2 later in the year, and Lard will be joining 6 music in April.

    Tipical that they've been dumped whilst on their hols.

    I think that they've dropping a few hints lately, that they were on their way out.

    Nothing After 2.........will be changed to nothing after 1 permanately:(

    Radio 1 message board is full of dissapointed people.

    Lard should be good on 6music, but it's a shame that the station isn't yet big enough to draw Mark Radcliffe in as well. Lard should get the freedom to play music that he's passionate about, rather than being bound by Radio 1's playlists.

    6music is, without doubt, my favourite radio station. I no longer listen to the radio in the car, except for Saturday mornings (quite like Jonathan Ross' show).

    Well I'd just like to add I'm glad they are going as mostly I thought they were poor. I much prefer Colin and Edith. Hopefully they will now not be on Sat morning and I can listen to Jonathon Ross on R2 knowing I amn't missing them on R1.

    Used to love Mark & Lard on the 10 'til midnight slot on Radio 1 quite a few years back. The eclectic choice of music was unlike anything else on radio at the time - or since - where you could here the likes of The Byrds, The Icicle Works, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Dr John, Creedence Clearwater Revival, R.E.M., James Brown, New Order, The Charlatans, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, etc + many new indie/rock bands all within 2 hours. Their comedy shtick was fresher and funnier then - and a little more 'out there' - and they also covered other areas such as cinema, with regular reviews by Mark Kermode & Kim Newman. Great stuff!

    Where is that kind of programming now? We really need it in this evermore bland and sanitised media world of ours.

    When they were 'promoted' to the breakfast show, I knew they were doomed. I listened when I got the chance and even though the show was often hilarious, it was also a little shambolic. Fine by me - had much more character and genuine laughs than the likes of Sara Cox (or now Moyles) could wish for in a lifetime - but it was obvious their brand of humour didn't have the mass appeal that Radio 1 bosses were looking for.

    I listened on and off to their afternoon show and while it was pretty entertaining for the first couple of years - their humour got away with quite a bit in that time slot - it was obvious that they hated most of the music they were forced to play off the R1 playlist! Worse still, I hated most of the music they were forced to play!! So much so that I've only listened on the odd occasion over the past few years and when I did they seemed to be in a bit of a rut.

    So I can't say I'm surprised that they have moved on to Radio 2 & 6. Hopefully this will give them both the chance to get back to the kind of broadcasting they used to do. It's unfortunate that they have gone their separate ways after so long, though, as they really did have a on-air chemistry that truly worked.

    I wish them well.

    As far as I'm concerned, that late night show was the finest radio programme I have ever listened to. 4 nights a week, it became unmissable and introduced me to a lot of great music both old and new.

    I'm hoping the move to Radio 2 means we get to hear Mark Radcliffe back in his element. Bring it on, it's good news as far as I'm concerned.

    Now there is nothing left on Radio 1 worth listening to. How people can rate that unfunny fat gobsh!te on the breakfast show is beyond me. Mark & Lard, as others have said here would play some decent music and were original and funny.
    Does anyone remember years ago when Alan Ball was manager at City, they used to do a mickey take of him ? It would end up in a high-pitched squeal which would eventually go beyond the range of human hearing - classic.

    Listening today for their reaction.

    No last show date given, but plenty of hints.

    Colin and Edith have got the gig.

    I quite like them, and listen to them when I have to work weekends, but......... Mark and Lard they ain't.

    Mark and Lard absolute C#$P. Glad they are going, the powers that be have axed them for a reason - have they not?

    Bigaddy Bigaddy Bo**oc#s - For that reason also.

    Colin and Edith are the way forward.

    Mark & Lard are ok, but they love the sound of their own voices too much...

    ...try listening to Virgin Radio 105.8, it's much better :lesson:

    Don't mind Colin but, for crying out loud, Edith ? She has to be one of the most irritating, omnipresent people on TV/Radio at the minute. I want to stove her face in everytime I hear her voice.
