Sarah Kennedy App!

Hands up who would like a Sarah Kennedy APP?

Applebugs have been in touch to ask if they could "build" an app. It would have lots of features, apparently.

Please comment and say YES if you would load-down the app.

Comment and say NO if you do not think this is not a good idea.

Thanks ppl!

Sarah gets unfairly fined for having hay fever!

Poorly Sarah Kennedy crashed her car because she suffered a sneezing fit at the wheel after driving past a field of rapeseed back in April.

She has been fined £400 and banned from driving for 22 months.

As reported by the Daily Mail.

"Breaking BBC rules"

A stupendous review of SK from TV Tropes:

A quintessentially British radio presenter, now retired, who presented an early morning radio show on BBC Radio Two for fifteen years. her performance style was characterised by fumbling, bumbling, on-air gaffes, ocassional lapses into non-politically correct jokes and references, and the suggestion that she sometimes arrived at work in an over-medicated state. 

 Despite this, her on-air personality, reminiscent of a boarding school matron, was loved by many fans, who protested vocally when her association with the BBC was severed in mysterious and still unexplained circumstances in 2009. This radio presenter's career presented examples of these tropes: 

Author Tract: her conservative views and opinions, often blatant and breaking BBC rules about political impartiality. 

Creator Breakdown: on at least one occasion her show was taken off the air because she was incoherent, rambling, and clearly in no fit state to continue. 

Suspicions of Drinking On Duty were levelled. Allegedly. 

 Dude, Not Funny!: the jokes about black people that got her into trouble at least twice. 

So Bad, It's Good: listening figures were boosted by those who tuned in early in the hope of hearing another classic Kennedy gaffe.
