things that would NEVER happen on American Radio.

BBC unrepentant after drunk Noel Gallagher says Amy is a 'destitute horse' and Jade 'smells of urine' live on Radio 1
At 9am during the school holidays, Noel Gallagher had a guaranteed audience of impressionable youngsters yesterday.
They heard the Oasis star boast about his drug-taking habits, and add that he was still drunk from the night before.

Gallagher, 41, slurred his way through a 15-minute interview on Chris Moyles's Radio 1 breakfast show, confessing that he had managed only two hours' sleep.
He went on to claim that he had taken drugs for more than 18 years, before embarking on a rant against several fellow musicians and celebrities.

He described troubled singer Amy Winehouse, who is fighting heroin addiction, as a 'destitute horse'.
And he criticised DJ Mark Ronson, who has had hits with Miss Winehouse and Lily Allen, for failing to write his own material.
He said: 'He wants to write his own tunes instead of ruining everyone else's. Mark Ronson needs to learn three chords on the guitar and write a tune.'

Mocking the rock band the Kaiser Chiefs, he said: 'The Monkees haven't split up, they're just going under the name of the Kaiser Chiefs.'
He added: 'I did drugs for 18 years and I never got that bad as to say, "You know what? I think the Kaiser Chiefs are brilliant".'

The elder Gallagher brother then moved on to lambast Peaches Geldof for marrying in Las Vegas this week. He commented: 'God Almighty, I have respect for Sir Bob ... stamp on her though.'

The BBC was criticised for failing to take Gallagher off the show, which has a listenership of more than seven million.

MediaWatch's John Beyer said: 'It's not appropriate for that time in the morning for a man to be in that state of mind or behaviour. The BBC should have been aware of his state and asked him to come back when he was sober.

'He is a role model that has a responsibility to youngsters and it doesn't set a good example - but I think the real fault lies with the BBC and the DJ who should have made the decision that he was not capable of being on air.

A BBC spokesman said: 'Noel Gallagher was very clearly briefed in advance and monitored during the live interview this morning. We have not received any complaints.
'As ever Noel was a lively and opinionated guest. Of course Radio One does not condone drug abuse and if we felt our guest was drunk we would not put him on air.'
Gallagher's outburst coincides with Oasis's announcement of UK tour dates which begin in October.
