I hope this is the case, but it's not like it was "back in the day" any more. Knowing how penny-pinching Global are, I wonder if they work the same way Chrysalis did - especially as there's a lot...

Living in London on two show rates is nigh-on impossible, I hope he has other stuff in the pipe-line, shame cos he's a top jock.

They'll probably do opt outs for local travel like Heart do.

I agree, especially with the music genre they play, a lot off bass-heavy pop/dance/urban where bottom end, and basslines are a big part of the sound, you want crisp processing that sounds loud but...

If anything we're not so much talking about artifacts/quality, this sounds more of an EQ issue, it's not so much comparing a 128 kbps mp3 to an AAC, it's more like comparing an mp3 that sounds...

I'm not one of the typical DS anoraks, I actually think Heart sounds lovely around here at least, nice easy listen, well programmed etc.

Capital - content wise, perfect, and the roll-out ... well...

You'd have to be deaf to not tell the difference. I haven't heard Galaxy for a while, but from what I remember it was nicely set for dance/urban music, lots of presence, crisp thumping bass, very...

But "nice and bright" is about as far removed from the actual description as possible, "tinny and ear-pearcing" would be more close to the mark. Have you actually heard it?!

It's easy to replicate...

I seriously think it will hemmorage their audience figures, it is not a nice listen, audiences don't know about "processing" but they will realise it sounds nasty.

If it's kicking in when ad-breaks are failing to play, it will likely be a CD/minidisc at the transmitter site, back ups are located at the TX sites incase the studios have problems.

Probably not, when Heart rolled out across the old One Network, they kept all the heart network shows in place. Makes sense as they have jocks who already know the format like the back of their...

How recent is "fairly recently", must have been at least several years though? It's been just "Heart" for at least the last 2/3 years?

If I remember rightly, Heart was called "Heart FM" back when it launched in the mid 90s, but they haven't used that brand on-air for at least the last decade.

I imagine global will do to Galaxy what they did to the One Network, basically all the Galaxy network jocks will be out of the gig and replaced with the existing Capital jocks.

Heart "FM"... are we back in 1998? Heart hasn't been called Heart FM for at least a decade, I suggest the o/p tries listening to the up-to-date output.

Evidently you don't, they are far from a dance/r&b station, they play The Script, Kings of Leon, Katy Perry, Olly Murs etc.
