It is coming up to 12pm and I have had to turn off the radio because “Freedom pass” is possibly the worst show I have ever had the misfortune to listen to. Perhaps it is because I am twenty-six and not one of your “Parky” demographic, but as an avid Radio 4 listener I was shocked to hear such drivel.
Not only was it grossly boring, but the derogatory and insulting remarks about single parent families were quite inappropriate. The presenter doesn’t like to disclose that his Mother’s maiden name is the same as his fathers in case people should think he came from a single parent family! Outrageous!
I understand Radio 4 is giving voice to an older generation, but poorly made shows like this should only widen the gap between young and old.
