You Make Me Want To Shout

On Air, Microphone, Radio, RecordingThere is this radio presenter on a radio show, well I think it maybe the entire radio station actually…I cannot explain how much I wish I did not have to hear it.

In the course of my working week, I sometimes work with a colleague who is great. Really really nice person. Very good at their work, great with staff and patients alike. However, this colleague really likes a radio presenter, on a radio show, on a radio station that is/are controversial, superior, critical and just – ugh!

Everytime I hear this guy wittering away with his cynical style, I want to run. I want to throw water over the radio. I want to to protest that we have to work with this guy draining to morale out of us.

Oh what to do! I don’t want to be a grumber. I really like my colleague. I just wish my colleaguee was not so keen on listening to one of the most annoying broadcasts there is.

This Is Heartbreak Radio 104.6 FM

I can’t cope with the radio.  I don’t listen to it at home usually.  Years ago when I worked for a record company I found my head never stopped buzzing with lyrics of popular songs and I needed to switch music off to be able to think clearly.

I do love music, especially going to live music events, but I tend to listen to music with friends rather than on my own, because when I am alone it can have a big effect on me.

Well today at work, my workmates wanted to have the radio on, and I kid you not, the playlist was just about the worst combination of songs to hear when I am so heart broken about Goldfinch.  I kept on having to hide my tears.  It was as if someone knew what I was carrying in my head and heart and they just thought “let’s play all the songs that are going to push her buttons and make her cry“.

As soon as my work mates left…it was radio off!!

The first song was especially poignant because it was the song Jack and I shared:

But all the other songs just made me think of what is happening with Goldfinch.
