Southern FM says sorry

Southern FM has been broadcasting a series of on-air apologies after a conversation containing swear words was heard during a song on the breakfast show.

Apparently listeners have been complaining after what station bosses describe as a technical fault occurred on Friday's show.

A listener from Hastings told The Argus: “I listen to the breakfast show every day and it’s never been as fruity as this. I was shocked to be honest, you don’t want to hear that kind of language at that time of the morning.”

A Southern FM spokesman [link=]continued[/link]: "We apologise unreservedly for any offence caused."

He added the swearing was not intended to be broadcast on air – and categorically denied the pair were employees of Southern, but did not confirm who they were working for.

The programme is hosted by Danny Pike with sidekicks Lynsey Bartlett and Jack the Lad.
