A new method of broadcast complaints

The Herald on Sunday reports on a novel new method of complaining about a broadcaster. After she was cut off on talkback, a woman called Margaret turned up to see John Tamihere and WIllie Jackson, along with a “dangerous looking dog”.

Now imagine what fun radio it would have made if she had managed to get inside the broadcast booth with said dog. You’d hear barking, running, growling (probably from Willie!), screams (from JT), and general mayhem. It would be a wonderful boost to ratings. And eventually people would hear the sirens as the Police turn up to shoot the dog, and the ambulance turns up to patch up the hosts.
