She gets a lot of stick on here but I feel Victoria Derbyshire's interview with the woman at the centre of the Scudamore issue, Rani Abraham, was very well done - compelling. She was every bit as...

I suppose it's more useful to package the AM services with their local heritage FM counterparts for advertising purposes (combined audience) than align them with the Magic north stations. Bauer...

96.3 makes no sense for Global as a standalone traditional local station or as a classic rock station. Its only possible use is extending an existing brand. They've got Heart and Capital in Scotland...

Northsound 1 is tied into the 'more hit music' sound, and Northsound 2 is stuck with MW and presenters from across Scotland. There is a natural gap for a station to come in steal the audience of both...

The Dumper (as I've christened it because it's where they've thrown all the speech output they don't want to do during the day) is a good news show, but it's so unHeart it's bizarre.

Still, Global...

Yes, I suspect it's got a very good line-up for one day, but you might hear a very similar line-up on a daily basis. Still though, as you allude to, they know exactly what they're doing.

Anyone who says Heart is predictable - we just had Titanium into Tears for Fears. Amazing. And yet somehow it works, while on other stations it would just sound odd. How is that?

That's me got the Time Tunnel right as well. :D

Kylie being the giveaway as it was all over the bloody radio at one point as it was very safe lyrically. An eventful year.

I note that the Heart Scotland Facebook has a few complaints, but nothing in comparison to those in the north of England. Presumably because the daytime presenters have a fairly distinct south-east...

Heart does have the ability to do smart networking and has done so in other areas in the past, so Toby could drop in a line if something huge happens.

It wasn't that big a deal and, given the...

No sign of them during Toby's show. It all seems a lot less cluttered as a result.

Having said that, it's a huge point of difference for Clyde if they want to play on it, especially as there was...

I was waiting for that after the third time I heard the Greatest Day promo.

To be fair, it probably fits Capital's format better. :D
