Listeners used this insult in one of every three episodes in June of a program that its managers announce will continue in September.

Shouting “whore Spain” is normal in the program “El búnquer”, broadcast by Catalunya Ràdio, from Monday to Friday, from 10 to 11 at night. Listeners regularly use it to introduce themselves or say goodbye in the voice notes they send to it. These are recorded voice memos. Therefore, whether they are broadcast is the decision of those responsible for the program. The bunker is produced by El Corral de l’humor and presented by Lluís Jutglar (Peyu), Jair Domínguez and Neus Rossell. The 2021-2022 season has cost 265,000 euros to the Catalan Corporation of Audiovisual Media (CCMA). In the June 30 episode, Peyu and Domínguez announced that they are already preparing the program for the next season.

‘El bunker’ of Catalunya Ràdio normalizes the insult of “whore Spain”


Listeners used this insult in one out of every three episodes in June of a program that its managers announce will continue in September.

Shouting “whore Spain” is normal in the program El búnquer, broadcast by Catalunya Ràdio, from Monday to Friday, from 10 to 11 at night. Listeners regularly use it to introduce themselves or say goodbye in the voice notes they send to it. These are recorded voice memos. Therefore, whether they are broadcast is the decision of those responsible for the program. The bunker is produced by El Corral de l’humor and presented by Lluís Jutglar (Peyu), Jair Domínguez and Neus Rossell. The 2021-2022 season has cost 265,000 euros to the Catalan Corporation of Audiovisual Media (CCMA). In the June 30 episode, Peyu and Domínguez announced that they are already preparing the program for the next season.

In June, ‘El búnquer’ aired 18 original programs between Monday and Thursday. On Fridays, one edited based on cuts of those programmed during the week is broadcast. In these 18 programs, in the voice notes of the listeners, “whore Spain” was shouted six times. It was in those issued on June 2, 7, 15, 23 and 28. This last day was a real festival of insults to Spain. Two of the listeners ended their speeches by shouting “whore Spain.” “Congratulations on the program and fucking Spain,” said one. “Bitching night and fucking Spain,” said another. In addition, an assistant to the program stated that “Spain steals from us.” The first intervention made by Jair Domínguez was to affirm that the two countries that he most hates are Spain and France. During this episode, ‘Els avis i àvies de la plaça de Vic per la Llibertat’ performed, giving the program merchandising that included an estelada and performing a song calling for the freedom of Catalonia and the return of the exiles.

Peyu, Domínguez and Rossell listen to the “whore Spain” of the listeners as if it were the most normal thing that these insults are released on the public radio of the Generalitat. On the June 15 program, after a girl dismissed her voice note saying “Good afternoon and fucking Spain”, Peyu underlined her comment by saying “with that joy”. He also celebrated the show of ingenuity of listener Pep, from Vic, who on June 2 dismissed her voice note saying “Good night and Ñaputaspa.”

On the 29th, Peyu himself explained that the closest he has come to dying was when a man who had stolen his credit card pointed a gun at him in Namibia. He simulated the dialogue he had with the Namibian thief by addressing him in Spanish.

Jair Domínguez has become a kind of guru of the sect of those who always have a “fucking Spain” ready. On July 1, he replied to a message from the journalist Ana Pastor on Twitter where she said that Spain had given a good image at the NATO summit held in Madrid with this tweet in Spanish: “This Spain you are talking about is a fucking piece of shit, rancid, Ana”.

On June 17, at the Control Commission of the CCMA, the PP deputy Lorena Roldán complained that in another Catalunya Ràdio program a listener had said that she wanted to go to the station with a shotgun after listening to it. The president of the CCMA, Rosa Romà, and the interim director of Catalunya Ràdio, Jordi Borda, apologized and affirmed that the mechanisms had been reinforced so that a similar event would not be repeated. “Hostile or threatening comments or insults to anyone cannot be broadcast” Borda said. Rosa Romà stated that “it will be monitored so that it does not happen again. You can’t help it live. I speak on behalf of the Council.” The six “whore Spain” of ‘El búnquer’ were recorded. Three of them were broadcast after the control session where Romà and Borda said that they would be careful not to insult anyone from Catalunya Ràdio.
