Farewell LugRadio!

I am both sad and glad to see the boys calling it a day for the program.

I am saddened that the show is going away as it is always interesting to listen to by the time I would get to it. There was a time where I would hold out on release Monday mornings and sometimes run late to work so could grab the episode and listen on my way in and through the early bit of the day. Many times I would relisten to focus on a topic.

I must admit though that this latest season has been, I won’t say disappointing, but not as compelling.  I don’t think that Adam and Chris really found their stride and their part in the show that became Jono and Aq debates. It started to feel that every episode you would know exactly how each presenter would argue their point. I found myself on time to work more often on release Mondays.

After four years together Aq and Jono have debated I think every major topic in the F/OSS world between themselves and with Matt, Ade, Adam, Chris, Sparkes and other guest presenters. Their guest list is a veritable who’s who in the F/OSS world.

So I think it’s a good thing that they have decided to pack it in and call and end to the LugRadio we’ve known and loved. They’re going out the way they want. After the LRL show in a few weeks I’ll keep the feed open in hopes of maybe a surprise show down the line discussing the topics of the day after the guys have rested and refreshed from the regular releases.

Good Luck guys and I hope to meet with you again in the future!

    When did Matt and myself get relegated to Guest presenters? The whole show was Matt’s idea in the first place.

    You can go off people you know.

    I did not intend for it to read as you and other named persons were guest presenters.

    I wrote it naming all the regular presenters and grouped the ‘other guest presenters’ (thinking of such as persons as MrBen) together so I did not leave any out that I could not recall.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.
