Former Lower Clarence resident, Richard Mutton, who now hails from down town Dubbo, has thrown his two cents worth into the discussion about radio station 2DU retrenching its announcers Angela Clutterbuck and Ash Keenan and cutting back its "live and local" weekend broadcasts.
Mutton has a bit of form (colloquially known as self interest) when it comes to commercial radio.
Mutton previously had a stint with UNE Radio in Armidale in his student days, where his call sign was "Swinging D*ck", and then moved on to commercial radio at 2GF in Grafton where he double-dipped while on the Education Department's payroll.
While he was live-to-air in Armidale, the same cannot be said about most of Mutton's late-night graveyard sessions on 2GF. Mutton pre-recorded most of his programs for 2GF and then sat at home and listened to himself.
Dubbo's Daily Liberal carries a report detailing Mutton's latest 'effort'. The hypocrisy of the bloke knows no bounds.
While I feel for Clutterbuck and Keenan, having Mutton batting for them isn't a good look.
