Have been meaning to write to congratulate you on your late night
show for ages.
It’s excellent and you must surely be up for an award or two sometime
What with that and you and Simon on Saturday mornings, radio
listening is almost perfect.
All we need now is for you two to take over the early morning show
and it would be…
Surely you could grab a few hours sleep somewhere along the
All the best and hang in there.
Dear JoAnne Good,
How are you!
I am a Chinese fan of yours, my name is Gao Wei ,
I love you very much!
In China, here some like me fans support you. I expect
that you can come to China one day.
I have a dream: I long to get two autograph cards
of yours. Can you help me to realize this dream ? If
I get it, I will collection it forever!
I long to get your letter soon. Thanks a lot!
I wish you will have more success. Give my best regards
to you and your family. Best wishes to you!
|Good evening Joanne
Do you realise your show reminds me of my
mum and dad holding dinner parties back in the 1960's where i was to young and
had to sit in my bedroom while the adults sat round the table with the hostess
trolley and fondue set underway.
And now im an adult I feel that I'm sitting
round your table with your guests and able to join in but with a cup of

I love your show so much I have virtually turned nocturnal; I
love the way you engage your listeners in such a way that it seems you're
talking to everyone individually as their very best friend.
I just wanted
to add to your discussion from last night's midnight society about the UK's
teenagers and depression. I am an eighteen and I think it is too easy to say
that this generation has it the best because every single teenage generation
before had it better than their predecessors. I do not think things are going
downhill with my generation but actually that they are going up-do you not think
that it is a bit odd that every single things that occurs concerning teenagers
no matter how positive is always distorted to make us seem as depressed,
sex-obsessed and the worst breed ever.
Take exam results-they have been
getting better every single year for the past 25 years but apparently this means
that the exams are getting easier, not that we are more responsible and
forward-thinking with our education. Also, with the student protests; it's not
that we are getting more involved in our futures and the politics of it all
including questioning the position society puts us in, it is more that we have
turned anarchic and are have violent wild parties in streets. We are not much
,more or less depressed than any other previous teenage generation, but our
needs have just evolved into arguably more sensible and relevant ones such as
getting lower tuition fees.
Maybe people have short-term memories. Mind
you in a couple of years I will no longer be part of "us" but just an observer
as to what teens get up to by then.
I hope you read this.

Late last night I accidentally tuned into your show
on radio london. Wowee.. I am so happy I did. you now
have a devoted fan. The music played was incredible
(millie jackson to name one). Your chat is ace, your
callers were interesting to say the least. I know I
am a day late but Eastenders v Corry. I just want to
point out that having just moved back down to london
after 10 years up north. It should be pointed out that
them up there and us down here are really two different
breeds (?) types. London (Eastenders) being considerably
more street wise and cosmopolitan whereas them up north
(Coronation Street) are, difficult to politely put on
paper, a little less so. Basically anything and
everything can happen down here where northerners are
a little narrower in mind and more basic. I feel that
over the years this has been put over so well by both
channels. Again thank you for the first of many a show,
I hope, even if you did keep me awake till 2. (god bless
the time machine called the internet). Happy New Year
to you and yours.
I just discovered your show, and I
must say that as an American who loves everything English it is a joy to listen
to, which I do on my computer at work. You have a new fan. I was in London a few months ago and
if I could I would move there in a minute. I love hearing from your guests and
get a kick out of your discussions on life in the UK and trust me the same
issues and the same problems are universal.

I just would like to tell you how much I
like your show! I listen to you everyday on iplayer as I live in Poland. Such
interesting are the topics you talk about, that it’s difficult to stop listening
or just go to the kitchen for a cuppa! I particularly like listening to you
before going to bed for it’s good for my English. I once visited London and I
did like that city. Glad you live there! Are there any photos of you in your
studio on the Internet? I’d like how your workplace looks.

PS How do you manage to stay up that long
to be on the show?
I would just like to thank you for your wonderful show each night. I was a long
time fan of Lbc until i discovered you! I hope to listen to you for many years
to come and have told many friends to tune in.
I'm writing from Miami Beach, Florida and wanted to tell you how much I enjoy
your show. It comes on at 5pm in the afternoon here and I look forward to it so
much. Your guests, topics and music are all really interesting, sophisticated,
smart and compelling. You make listening to the radio a joy.
I'm also the editor in chief of Glamour Quotient magazine and would

Joanne, I am listening to your show every morning on my way to work in Hong
I love your show and your voice � It has become my favorite routine in
the morning and is the highlight of my journey to work, if not the
My Childhood legacy is quite the opposite of yours;
My Dad was a
very proud and funny Greek, whom I adored. He was obsessed with switching the
lights off everywhere.
Unfortunately he died tragically in a car accident in

Just wanted to say hi!! I listen to you every day online from Los Angeles
(I am a Londoner with roots in Notting Hill and NW London). I heard my friend
Jont on your show yesterday. It was so fantastic!!!! Jont is such a great guy -
I met him I guess about 10 years ago - used to go see him play often at London's
12 Bar club on Denmark Street, and regular other 'Unlit' events. A couple of
years ago my friend Eddie and I hosted a mini unlit with Jont at Eddies old
converted pub in Stoke Newington. Hope I can catch his next event when I visit
in August, but just wanted to say thanks so much for having him on your show -
it made the best radio show on air extra fab!!!

A note to say thank you for making me laugh (again). This
time it was Monday's show and the classic JoAnne Good lines:
over a girl to get to the picnic table - that's not a euphemism!
... with people dropping their cheese on her
Hilarious. Wish your show wasn't on so late but with lines like those
it is perhaps a good thing it is.
Anyway another new fan here and look
forward to the next show.

I just had to just
write to you! I've just spent the last few days away
in Spain on my own trying to find myself....(Going through
a messy divorce and all that).
Not having spoken
to anyone (literally)for 5days except airport/hotel
and the odd bar staff...I was feeling low coming back
to the UK...to a life of almost object misery! But having
listen to your show for the last hour I'm so glad I'm
back, you have just lifted my spirits, your husky voice,
the house band, sexy voice of Pippa and the Italian
lady...even the lawyer - have just made me laugh so
much, to the point where I was sitting at some traffic
lights and the couple in the car next to me must have
thought I was a local looney!!!
Sorry for my ramble, but I just
wanted to say how your show/life - life on show has
made me laugh and smile!
Keep doing what you guys do, loving
Raj July 2010
