After six years of reading the news, and contributing generally to Triple R's Breakfasters show, Tony Wilson said goodbye to himself through song, just as he had sung off previous team members. His farewell speech is on Soundcloud below.
I read the news today, oh boy
About a conference called on climate change
And though the news was rather bad,
Well I just had to laugh
Cos Johnny's stuck in Wolstencraft
I loved my time at Triple R
I bitched and moaned until the government changed
I shared my time with Fee B Squiared
We chose Sam Pang before
Nobody was really sure if he was any good at allllll
They call me Tinseltone oh boy
The English tabloids hold me up in awe
I'm part of Lindsay Lohan's day
All the time it took, should have plugged my boooook!
Each time you turned us on.
Woke up, got out of bed
No need for combs across my head
Foudn my way on air
Pang made a cup
The mikes were on
Fee noticed I was late
6.15, hello and that
Made a pun that fell quite flat
Told Fee B Squared I liked the track
Sam made a crack about playing more Nelly ...
I read the news today oh boy
My final show with Fee and Sam is here
Amd through the years I've had a ball
The show survives us all
Love to Fee and Sam and my apologies to John and Paul
And you who turned us on.
