Ah-ha-ha - I heard that going out and thought it sounded a little strange, so I'm not surprised to see a thread on here.

What I'm guessing happened is that either: a) Years and Years were so far...

For those in the borderlands - say 25-35, falling out of the Radio 1 audience but still keen on some of the music, I'd point to RTE's 2fm as a possible alternative. It doesn't have the same pressure...

Heart edits

This may have been covered in the past - I don't hang about here as much as I used to - but out of curiosity, what is with the Heart edits of certain Black Eyed Peas songs?

It's really not the clearest branding in the world. AFAIK the reason West Sound FM (in Dumfries and Galloway) is different is because there is no equivalent MW station down there. In the past it...

Those who listen to Radio 2 more than I do will know if I'm talking nonsense, but from this Ken's trajectory in the station sounds very similar to Mark Radcliffe's at Radio 1. Both huge talents, both...

I'd missed the top of the hour news at that point so tuning elsewhere for Scottish news would have been pointless.

As for the appointment to listen argument - a fair point, but does that apply...

Tuned into Clyde 1 for the news at 2pm the other day. Found no news but a blatantly networked show from Key 103 instead. Sighed, switched to Spotify and haven't been back.

I have no particular...

iPhone internet problems

96.3 makes no sense for Global as a standalone traditional local station or as a classic rock station. Its only possible use is extending an existing brand. They've got Heart and Capital in Scotland...

Yes, I suspect it's got a very good line-up for one day, but you might hear a very similar line-up on a daily basis. Still though, as you allude to, they know exactly what they're doing.
