Do you think people who work for Heart ever feel like the guy in McDonalds who hovers over the deep fat fryer and just wishes for one moment that he worked in a proper restaurant?

6Music still concentrates on some tracks far too much (those 75 plays of Belle & Sebastian will mostly be of their latest single), but at its best the mix is incredible.
