caller from Galashiels...............
During the mid 90's Radio Borders had DJ Ken Haines and his
Country Music slot on the Friday nights which was very popular among
many of the older generation in the Borders. However the Radio Station decided
they wanted to try something different and so conducted an
experiment by hooking up
with Carlisle based radio station CFM, and their legendary talk show
host John Myers, who presented the Friday Night Phone In, where they
basically invited the public to phone in and share their opinions
live on the radio on any subject they wanted.
Unfortunately if you combine a radio host who does not suffer fools gladly and
disgruntled Radio Border listeners who had lost their favourite DJ it is not a good combination!
The result was some rather unhappy people! Bring on
one of the first complainers Donald!..................

Please be aware if you are offended by high energy verbal
arguments and/or the odd offensive word then this sound file is
probably not for you!
Friday Night Phone In was very short lived in the Borders
and lasted about a month
following this call
Many thanks to David for this.
