UPDATE: Peter says on his Facebook page that today's show will be a repeat of last week's, so it is intentional and not a play out error.

Peter Anthony's show this morning is a repeat also.
I am not bothered personally as it was a good show last week, but if it is another play out error then it needs to be sorted.

I am sure that the meaning of the English language version of "99 Red Balloons" contributed to the popularity of the song. It is far superior to the original German version.

Yes, I enjoyed the "Today's Better Music Mix" format. But it didn't work everywhere.
Beacon Radio's audience figures plummeted and never recovered.

Excellent! I used to love Piccadilly Radio during the 1970s. I was lucky enough to live in North Shropshire at the time so I could hear it on 261 metres quite clearly during the daytime.

Hardly surprising if it is doing better than Telford FM. I think my old iPod FM transmitter covered Telford better than that thing on 107.4 did. It's not much better now.

Hmmm! It certainly does push the boundaries a little doesn't it? I have never studied the lyrics of that song before, it's the tune that attracts me to a song more than the lyrics.
