But you're making the massive mistake of assuming that every listener wants or expects exactly the same as you from their radio station. They don't. For many, the unchallenging, clutter-free,...

Absolutely. If anyone wants to know how difficult it is to successfully position a station between Heart and Capital, then take a look at Free Radio and the struggles it has had in Birmingham. It can...

Think you've tied yourself up in knots there fella. Surely if the 'copied' version of Heart is, as you say, different name, different presenters, and different format, then really it's not a copy of...

It seems to me the 'blame' for any lack of meaningful debate on this thread can be attributed to both sides. It seems everything has to be black and white, when in reality there are many, many shades...

Do they still do their request show on Saturday and Sunday? Theme from Mahagony sounds a bit off-piste. Agree though, it's a slightly strange combination, at least to play one after the other. Always...

The thing here is that Jack FM in many ways is exactly the same as the Heart that you have no time for. I totally get that you may prefer the music mix on Jack, but it's every bit as formulaic as the...

The thing is, for 20 year-olds into urban and dance music who love Clean Bandit, Route 94, Duke Dumont etc, they are credible. The only reason they aren't to you, is that you don't like or don't get...

Which pretty much sums up a thread on Top 40 radio. You'll only enjoy Top 40 (or CHR) radio if you like what's in the charts. Music goes in cycles and right now, at least in terms of single/download...

'Don't Save Me', 'Falling' and 'The Wire' have all made the Top 40 - with 'The Wire' peaking at #16 so not sure what you're basing that post on?

You do realise that there was dance music and club culture before the late 80s/90s and the Hacienda? It sounds like you're trying to rewrite history or cut out the bits that you personally don't like!

You might be right - not living on the Island I don't have any anecdotal evidence, but RAJAR would suggest otherwise. IW Radio has a 33% reach. I'd be surprised if Wave are hitting 33% on the Island...

That may be the case but it is NOT networked. She is doing a separate show for the Island. Why don't you actually have a listen and you'll see for yourself.
