Just because a bloke is a radio host does not mean he should be taken seriously.
To the contrary, anything and everything your typical radio host says should be dismissed as grist for the mill of entertaining and amusing an audience of people who can’t afford television sets.
Hence Alf is astonished to find how much excitement has been generated by a BBC radio host by name of Toby Foster.
As things turn out, this feller tells us he was “just having a bit of a laugh” when he slagged Kiwis as “crazy” and “boring” and said that New Zealand had “sod all” except for earthquakes on his breakfast radio programme on Monday.
BBC Radio Sheffield’s Toby Foster had a rant after wrongly reporting that an Australian woman, who survived a plunge into Africa’s crocodile-infested Zambezi River when her bungy cord snapped, was Kiwi.
He said yesterday: “It was quarter to nine on a Monday morning, I was just having a bit of a laugh.”
So how does Toby Foster get his laughs?
