I agree that it needs to be lighter than Radio 4 but just now it is very X-Factor & celeb gossip. I also hate it when Nicky interrupts interviews by making silly comments and also makes silly...

I would agree with getting rid of Campbell. The show has become far too lightweight and is more about the presenters than the news. They waste so much time with silly banter that interesting news...

It makes me so mad, i want to stamp my foot.

Why is it strange that STV show programs about Scotland and its land & wildlife? We are in Scotland and I for one want programs that shows the country I am in.

I don't think the problem is with the BBC transmitters but the commercial transmitters. In Caithness we have perfect BBC DAB radio but no commercial ones.

Commercial stations are always having a go...

For those missing Danny try "Off the Ball" on Radio Scotland at midday. Its tag line is "The most petty and ill-informed football show on radio". It is very very funny.

It would be good if it was a true national station. Even in areas that have DAB radio they won't be able to get it as there is no commercial Netmux

Not sure if it is related but I have a HD box and a Sky +. Suddenly my Sky+ box has no audio on BBC Radio 3, 4 & 5. The HD box is fine. I have rebooted the Sky+ box to no effect.

Were I live in Caithness, on FM I get BBC Radio's 1, 2, 3, 4, and Radio Scotland. On DAB I get BBC Radio 1, 1xtr, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, Asian & World Service. Therefore I get more on DAB than FM.

Why is he doing the Open for 5 live? Is it because he lies golf and we pay for part of his holidays? I find it annoying that these people go to sporting events on the premise of it being work!

I used to love listening to him at lunchtimes. It was his show that started me listening to 5 live. Nicky Campbell is turning me off 5 live.
