BBC Radio Interviews From Hell

BBC Radio Interviews From Hell My favourite is Dr Hastings Banda the leader of Malawi in 1962 who seems to have to the perfect way of getting out of an interview he obviously doesn't want to be having. See also the minimalist pleasure of Gordon Clough's dog. [in Real Audio]

my favorite interview gone wrong is Terry Gross interviewing Gene Simmons.

Good post, I like how you can bypass the sound files and read texts of the infamously bad interviews (and they are just as funny in print).

Congratulations, feelinglistless, on giving us a little bit of the Best of the BBC, without linking to their regular site (#2 on the Top 50).

And I also would like to encourage adopting:
"I don't know anything about X. It's X and that's all I know about it."
as an official MetaFilter CatchPhrase.

Also, if number of comments is the way a lot of people judge the quality of posts (as they're saying in MeTa right now), then this post deserves a lot more comments.
