I don't have an issue with any of that if that's what you think. I do, however, have an issue with describing it as the 'worst torture possible'. That's just a crass, ridiculous statement and makes...

Without in anyway wanting to belittle your symptoms, are you seriously trying to argue that piping a commercial radio station through a workplace is on a par with torture techniques employed in...

No Gareth - read my post again. I didn't say that taking on Lincs wouldn't potentially be a profitable move. But how profitable it is and how quickly they can return a profit on any investment...

Rubbish. It's always about commercial value. Global is a business funded heavily by venture capitalists and investors looking for a return on their money. They're not going to start pissing millions...

I think you know what I mean! The point is Lincs, for a commercial station, lacks any real focus. It doesn't (currently) pose them a major problem as there is little, if any, competition from the...

Err....no. Absolutely nothing like Radio 2. Don't recall them playing tracks that are essentially drum 'n' bass one minute into 70s rock the next. Radio 2 is varied and eclectic, but could rarely be...

Really? I agree totally about the local thing - to be fair Lincs do a good job of 'owning' their patch. But I wouldn't call it 'great'. The last time I was in the area, the bits I heard were...

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...

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!
