On viewing the episode, my own thoughts went to the production budget. The quality of the visuals was outstanding for a TV show.

I think the problem was that they didn't have enough lead actors to...

Carrier bags were a common problem when I walked in retail. On the face of it, to the customer, it is an unreasonable situation, but the cause is harder to appreciate.

Ironically, given that he was often labelled by the media as a homophobic bully, Chris Moyles was actually very good at dealing with these issues, when R1 had awareness / action weeks.

I'd agree with you in principle, but I'd also suggest the online Bingo is a mild form of gambling. This is due to the slow paced nature and because you can't buy-in during the game. It could well be...

If The Rev's pre-Penk was had 19,000 with a niche format and the 'wide' format, with minor celeb backing can't even double that figure, it doesn't sound a good result to me. The commercial...

It's more understandable, presenting Mon - Weds, if his family is still based down south. But it still makes for a poor proposition for listeners that tune in Mon - Weds. So, perhaps a positive move,...

If you're only going to do 3 shows a week, you might as well not bother at all.
