Then I shall oblige.

I think it's been pretty awful I'm afraid. The on-screen graphics are pointlessly intrusive. At no point have I listened to any of the pundits and come away thinking I've...

Still can't stand the Sports Bar I'm afraid. I was never keen on Ash so giving him airtime hasn't encouraged me to listen more. Following his spell on overnights, it's clear to me that this slot...

Muddy thinking from Mr Rea or is he being disingenuous? Not 'endorsing the coalition' is not a counter to criticism of the station being skewed to the right. Much of the criticism of the coalition...

Martin, you've been around radio long enough to know it doesn't work like that. The power is always with the presenter, they can cut off a caller or fade them down and talk over them the moment they...

Perhaps a partial swap would be in order: give Sot80s to Janice Long and give Sara Cox the Sunday night/early Monday show.

Yes, also of Thats My Dog fame.


This was essentially a gardening phone in which continued for some years in various slots as part of the Fix It Phone In on LBC.

I agree, Charlie Jordan was excellent on overnights at the weekend. When it was still LBC 1152, Tessa Dunlop presented overnights in the week for a while.

No, Graham Dene took over from Mike Smith (for his second stint at breakfast I believe). Tarrant eventually had a lunchtime show and swapped after a while with Dene.

As the station's become a bit more professional (no seriously, it has) it's become harder for H&J to fill up Clips of the Week. This week's was a bit of a classic though, probably because there's...

What a disappointing set of changes. Last time Andrew Pierce had his own show they had to add Kevin Maguire after a while to provide some semblance of balance.

A lot to unpick there! Bob Shennan has a balancing act: I agree that some of the old R1 DJs are going to have to migrate to R2, but not all of them will be able to do so. If he wants to give Sara...

Although I'm outside the BBC3 demographic and enjoy BBC4, this is the issue for me. By scrapping or downgrading BBC3 in this way, you'd be setting up a disconnect between the BBC and younger people,...

If it's an '80s party' then they might as well carry on with Sara Cox. I'd prefer a show that does for the 80s what Brian Matthew does for the 60s and delves a bit deeper. Jensen's totally associated...

I would love to hear the reaction from Radio 3 listeners if Bates turned up. It is hard to see where he might go next although I think he would fit in well on a BBC local station.
