Nick Abbot in a flap over LBC output fail

The start of Nick Abbot’s Saturday night show on LBC was delayed after a problem with the studio output.

The 10pm news bulletin ended as planned at 10:04pm and a Nick Abbot ID played along with a sound clip saying ‘everything’s going really well’. But this was followed by 30 seconds of silence then an ID for Steve Allen and a pre-recorded ‘in conversation’ interview with actor Reece Shearsmith.

This lasted for two minutes before it was interrupted by a trail for Nick Ferrari’s breakfast programme. Another 30 seconds of silence followed, before Steve Allen reappeared.

Moments later Nick Abbot was live – saying “You won’t believe the flap that’s going on right now, so are we actually on the air right now?,” Nick asked, to which a second voice confirmed. He continued: “Are you absolutely certain about that, is everything going very very well? Maybe I should go back home, does that sound like a good idea?”

Nick then went on to complaint that he didn’t have his notes and that the studios aren’t working. The show then continued as planned around 10 past.

The radio fail didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter.
