Firefighters were called to the LBC radio studios last Thursday, when engineers reported a burning smell during a live phone in. Later, production staff agreed that the smell seemed to have a more ‘toasty’ aroma.
The smell of toast disappeared then reappeared today, Thursday 29th May, leaving staff mystified that the toast smell only seems to materialise on Thursday mornings. ‘It would be more appropriate if the smell of toast occurred during the breakfast show,’ said one producer. ‘Oddly, it seems to begin after 9am and intensify for the next hour.’ But one veteran observer predicted that by next Thursday the toast-smell will have disappeared completely. And a senior LBC producer commented ‘Up to this week we were more concerned with an upcoming presenter vacancy in the graveyard slot. We think we can see a solution to the problem.’
