Quote from: thr0b on June 20, 2022, 09:17:57 PMIt was mentioned on Digital Spurgh. Nothing sinister - contract not renewed and he was the one dropped as he was remoting. I think.
QuoteAs of a couple of weeks ago Alun Cochrane will no longer be part of the Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio.He says Frank wanted to re-fresh the line up.But doing some research on line it appears the most likely reason for his exit is that he's no longer manged by Avalon - the company who produce the show for Absolute Radio and manage everyone else who features on it. I suspect this, and the fact he was now broadcasting from home (still not sure why that was still the case), are the main reasons for him being axed from the show.For me the biggest shame is that after so many years he never got any kind of send off, in fact his exit still hasn't even been acknowledged.

McCreery on December 13, 2020, 06:50:17 PMI saw him just before that Edinburgh at a parent-and-baby comedy club where your audience of exhausted mums (I went three times and was the only adult male there) just want to laugh at some observations and mucky stories.Alun did 20 minutes on why he should be allowed to be critical of Islam if he wants to because we're all adults and should be able to have a grown-up debate and all shake hands afterwards. It was shit and weird.

McCreery on June 20, 2022, 10:45:10 PMCould it be that Frank's a GBOL these days while Alun's become a bit of a right-wing arsehole?His last tour show - which contained plenty of anti-Muslim and anti-trans material - has been discussed on here before. Here's a post of mine from a couple of years ago:

Quote from: ImmaculateClump on June 20, 2022, 11:36:33 PMYeah, that Pierre guy has hit the ground running. I wouldn't mind if he was to stay.

Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on June 20, 2022, 11:47:30 PMIt's interesting that your original quote talked about "criticising Islam" but now you say he's "anti muslim"? I genuinely think there's a huge difference
Quote from: lankyguy95 on June 20, 2022, 10:57:36 PMYeah it's definitely a little more than a simple decision not to renew his contract. Eleven years, every week, on the show and then no mention when he's let go is pretty odd.
Quote from: Gurke and Hare on June 21, 2022, 01:32:39 PMIs the Pierre mentioned as replacing him Pierre Novellie, who's supported Skinner on tour?
Quote from: thr0b on June 21, 2022, 04:12:56 PMThe other thing about being unpersoned; that's how radio works. It's exceedingly rare for anyone to be given a "final" show (where it's live radio) - there's too much risk of them going rogue and doing a DLT, or a Baker.
Quote from: ImmaculateClump on June 21, 2022, 05:24:53 PMAaaah, yeah that does make sense. It's weird that Frank and Emily haven't mentioned it in passing to the listeners though.With Alun saying "frank let me go", it sounds like it was Franks decision and they just don't want to talk about it on air.Can't help but feel sorry for the bloke. They're just acting like he never existed.
