An awful style, arts and music-based chat show hosted by Steve Taylor, live from
the Albany in Deptford, South London with guest co-hosts including, on one memorable
occasion, Private Eye's Ian Hislop.
A selection of uninteresting and un-interested pop stars turned up to plug their
new discs, but the regular host didn't know what to do to make anyone say anything
interesting, while Hislop got lumbered with mumbling imbeciles. He would later choose
his encounter with Tom Waits on the show as a candidate for entry into Room 101.
The only other notable memory would be actor Peter Capaldi introducing singer Sade
Adu for the first time on TV.
Loose Talk was another Channel 4 show which employed backroom boy Jonathan Ross.
Chart stars like Aztec Camera, Difford & Tilbrook, Elvis Costello, Howard Jones and
others appeared, but it wasn’t enough to rescue it.
A disaster which ran for two series.
