I'm not sure what I need to apologise for? You offered your opinion, I challenged you on it. That's the nature of debate. I think sickened was a ridiculous word to use in the context of your post and...

Oh how the record companies wish they had that kind of power! See the other recent thread on Capital's initial non-playlisting of Calvin Harris to get an idea of the games that are played. There may...

What an earth are you going on about? I'll help you out. I was suggesting that saying you were 'sickened' by Heart not mentioning where listeners were from, was at best a bit melodramatic, and at...

Why would you ever expect Heart to play any unsigned music????? :o

Fair point, albeit a touch pedantic! ;-)

The fact remains, the track was #1 in the 'official' chart, and is tailor-made for the UK's No.1 hit music station, yet they're not playing it - not because...

Capital Playlist - Where is this weeks No.1?

So the UK's No.1 Hit Music station, Capital, has not playlisted the UK's current No.1 hit. Blame, the latest track from Calvin Harris ft John Newman has not made it onto playlist, despite being what...
