- Lauren Laverne Pretentious Challenge
Just listening to L Laverne on 6music and I’m convinced she will read anything out from listeners no matter how pretentious.Posted 3 years ago
So just for fun I challenge you STWers to get the most pretentious tweets/texts whatever read out on her show! Then post them on here.
Extra points for pulling in tales of sunrises whilst ‘finding yourselves’ travelling in outer Mongolia or wherever!
So there it is The Lauren Laverne Pretentious Challenge
He shoots he scores!!!
She just read this out,
So excited Danny Boyle is coming on the show, it takes me back to the first time I watched trainspotting. I was traveling at the time and in Thailand. I watched it at a special showing on a big screen at the beach late one night, I was that blown away by the film I couldn’t move and stayed to watch the sunrise, it was a beautiful moment where I really found myself and I’m sure it has shaped who I am today.
Love and peace

Why wouldn’t she, though? It’s all about connecting with the listeners, without discriminating just because the content may be a bit ‘pretentious, moi?’. I doubt you’ll find much different on any other radio station, in fact Radio 1 can be as bad, if not worse; I’m forced to listen to it for much of the day, drives me nuts!
I don’t remember Kenickie really.
Laverne though, jeezus she’s pretty. (not laverne from Scrubs)
I saw Kenickie three times in Bristol, and LaLa was not only stunning, but very funny, in fact the band were, quite possibly, the most fun band I’ve ever seen live.Posted 3 years ago
They had to break off one tour part-way through to go back and take their A-Level exams!
This topic seems to come up quite often – perhaps some of the stw membership should refrain from listening to radio stations which allow women to talk. Isis fm ?
Lala is lovely. (as is MAH btw).
I was also lucky to see Kenickie several times, they were brilliant.
btw “Arse” not aimed at big John btw – aimed at the deleted post.Posted 3 years agokimbersSubscriber

That’s just silly, the Sean keavney threads are more frequent and angry.
6 music has some great DJs, but they all do tend to talk too much, just play some tunes, half the reason peopke tune in is to avoid advertsPosted 3 years ago
instead you get some Laverne/ lamo/ Riley/ Matthews/ Garvey pretentious wafflesimons_nicolai-ukMember
Talks far toooooooo bloody much for my liking!
Stop babbling woman & play the bloody record!
That’s the point. If you just want music hit an auto playlist on Spotify or AppleMusic (or go to BBC Playlister and feed that into your streaming service of choice). 6Music DJs are smart and know and love the music they play (and are reasonably honest when they’re playing something from the playlist they don’t like).Posted 3 years agoscudMember
I blinkin’ love 6 Music, what else is there? I’m too old for Radio 1, not opinionated or able to listen to the musically beige Radio 2, Radio 4 has the odd comedy show that i can listen too, but other than that 6 music is only radio station i could listed to from 7am to midnight and not want to kill someone!
Yes Keaveney gets a bit repetitive, Mary Anne Hobbs sounds like her life is a permanent acid-flashback and I find Chris “the Hawk” Hawkins could put a 30 stone Gorilla to sleep; but they place decent music, there is some great documentaries (brilliant 8 hour doc on the history of Jamaican music that was on a 1am and could be downloaded on iplayer recently) and the DJ’s actually have knowledge of what they are talking about.Posted 3 years agomunrobikerMember
There’s a magic recipe for radio for me that goes something like this-
Drive to work- Classic FM. Soothing, interesting and no overly-boisterous hosts.
At work – 6Music.
If I’m on the road – Radio 4 between 10 and 12. That’s when all the best stuff is on.
Lunchtime – Radio 1, the only non-digital station not playing some politics/phone in shite.
Afternoon – 6Music again.
Drive home – if it’s 4.30, Radio 4. If it’s Wednesday then Radio 2’s folk show on Iplayer. If it’s after 5 then Radio 2.
You’re not bound to listening to one station all day. 6 Music gets very playlisty and for some reason about 12.30-1.30 they lose the plot and play absolutely mental guff.Posted 3 years ago
