Er no. The show should cover a wide range of years that reflects the wide Radio 2 audience. Not what Blackburn, Swern and david1956 wants exclusely.

I don't give a shit what Tony Blackburn thinks. It isn't supposed to be the Tony Blackburn show. You again pick out some terrible songs when Gary Jules, The Darkness, Outkast etc don't sound dated.

I would say you are the one that is being patronising. You are assuming that everyone feels the same as you and also I am sure many people who are older would also quite like to hear some 90's and...

Oh so ratings is all that matters? The BBC shouldn't take risks then? Oh and by your argument the 50's shouldn't feature more because of the ratings. Its funny how that argument is only used when it...

But you hear 80's on Heart. You are hearing the exact same years on BBC Local so what is the point of Pick Of The pops doing the same thing? The show isn't reflecting the broad Radio 2 audience which...

No refusing to listen to anything else is. And you are the spoilt child. I will switch off if I hear anything post 1989 so they shouldn't do it which is what you are saying.

Good. You seem to like just being stuck in the 80's and refuse to listen to anything made after 1989! Why should the show be just for the likes of you? It's funny you tell us we should go and listen...

Bollocks. For starters all 3 were regularly played when new on Radio 2. Infact it was Radio 2 that were credited with getting Gary Jules to no.1.
