Once again radio listeners confused why hosts are laughing.

Johnno Northman is a long-time Generic FM fan, mainly because there’s not much choice on the drive to work, but even Johnno is confused why the on-air hosts are always laughing at comments that just aren’t funny.

“Radio’s always been something that you endure because there’s not much else on, but fair go – what’s everybody laughing about all the time?” asked a perplexed Johnno.

“Listen to this,” as Johnno played a grab from the latest breakfast show.

‘My in-laws are coming over tomorrow,’ said generic host 1.

‘Oh uh,’ said generic host 2.

‘Yeah, I’m looking forward to that – NOT!’ said generic host 1.

[raucous laughter for 10 seconds, followed by station sting Generic FM. VO – Tune in tomorrow.]

As Johnno sat in stoney silence at the end of that break, he was far from done.

“That’s the promo from the show today. Which means that was the best bit out of a four hour show. The best!” sighed Johnno, shaking his head. “That’s it. I’m done. I’m gunna drive to workin silence now.”

Unable to continue the interview, we left Johnno with his thoughts as we drove off from his flat in rural Queensland. Listening to the radio in the car, were treated to another supposed gem by the on-air announcers.

‘My wife has a cat. I like it,’ said generic host 1.

‘So you’re saying you like your wife’s pussy?’ asked generic host 2.

[raucous laughter for 10 seconds, followed by station sting Generic FM. VO – Tune in tomorrow.]

Thanks all the same Generic FM, but Johnno’s right – time to give it a miss.
