    It's Alan Brazil the brand. People like you get the right hump with it. It's clear his employer tolerates, maybe even encourages this behaviour. It's a talking point in its self, which is handy on talk sport.

    I don’t get the hump because I can and do turn him off .I just feel he embarrasses himself but he can’t see it .I thought he would have reeled it in a bit after being done for drink driving .Each to their own I suppose .

    Alan Brazil is a caricature of himself. The man is a show, he's not just on one.
    Maybe he doesn't just enjoy a drink perhaps he has an actual problem.

    Alan Brazil doesn't annoy me as much as that bloody atrocious 'music' that introduces his show. I always turn to another station when that racket is on and, if the programme is interesting, often forget to turn back!

    Opposite side of the same coin. I really like a drink, but keep it down to once or twice a week. Brazil seemingly drinks daily and quite often heavily. You just have to look at his complexion to see he has a problem. My Grandad had a similar look and was unfortunately a raging alcoholic, not that he ever admitted it!

    Fair point - ultimately he is still on the air because his listening figures keep the TalkSport execs happy; thus keeping him employed on a pretty healthy wage. As @Jonzy54 says - you can choose to turn off or listen as you please - its a matter of personal choice.

    I just don't understand the clamour to berate the guy at every opportunity. He either enjoys a drink - so let him, or he's an alcoholic - so needs help.

    The people that seem to have a problem with him not turning up to work are the ones that dislike him so much, so what's the issue if you don't have to listen to him one morning? They should be delighted.

    His job isn't important, he's not saving lives FFS.

    I hate Nigel Farage, I purposely don't listen to him. My missus listens to LBC, so I've heard him, annoyingly as a chat show host he's actually quite good and surprisingly offers a balanced platform from what I've heard.

    I don't disagree with your second two paragraphs. I was just pointing out that enjoying a drink neither means you're an alcoholic or not. Both can enjoy a drink. The clamour to berate him stems imv of frustration at him getting away with a work ethic very few of the rest of us could.

    Living the dream right? His bosses clearly see him as indispensable.

    Maybe the BBC should have taken the same stance with Jeremy Clarkson. What a ridiculous thing to have done.

    Top gear these days, lol.

    Regarding his frequent sickies, I think he gets paid per show rather than a salary so it saves them a bit when he has his bad back/throat/hangover.

    Back in 2013 he was paid £1500 per show, this may be £200 per show now?

    I like Talk Sport however I have no interest in horse racing or Cheltenham. I have it on most days but will give it a miss this week during the daytime once Cheltenham is over. Means have to listen to 5 Live and the depressing Brexit monotony...

    Just be selective with listening...

    Definitely. He has a great job, very well paid, enjoys the finer things, gets much of it free. I'm jealous.

    I do enjoy the irony of posters complaining about someone's drinking on a forum that always has posts mentioning malt. :D

    He made it on air (certainly at 07.45 he was broadcasting).

    Yeah. I've always wanted to walk around, quaffing champagne, knowing that my massive heart could explode at literally any minute.

    He was on, surprisingly coherent though he did say he felt like dying (or words to that effect) and that Parlour was unlikely to surface before 11am

    He was on at 6am.Dean Saunders asked him if he had eaten yesterday and he said he had just had a bacon sarnie and a bit of chilli.There may lie his problem.

    Suffering the morning after doesn’t actually suggest alcoholism.

    yes, but in his case, a bacon sarnie means half a loaf and about 3 packs of bacon and a chilli is a bucket full!

    My cousin was asked to look after the top gear lads on their roadshow. Apparently hammond wanted to fight him, now when you consider my cuz is about 6 5 and well known in music security it came as a bit of a shock to him. Hammond is well known for it apparently, however he can’t fight so keeps getting the **** kicked out of him. Has scars all over his hands from fighting.

    My cuz asked him straight, hammond says yeh, I was gonna have a pop. ‘**** off you ****’ he says.

    In days gone by I believe if he missed a show due to unscheduled non-appearance he would not be paid but fined as well. I seem to remember his disclosing this on one of his shows.

    Amen and hallelujah to this!! The man is a plank. He constantly misses obvious points and has that annoying scotch habit of shouting for no reason. He also must've had some decent subeditors as a press journalist because his command of the English language is poor. He seems to get by on 'contacts' alone - it's unsurprising people speak to him because he's an imbecile and an absolute walk over in interviews. ****.

    And how many million listeners does he have? How much advertising revenue does he generate - albeit indirectly? The public love him. You can't deny that. Live and let live.
