to go to radio 2 apparently.
dont have any links sorry.
he's staying on 6Music but moving to Saturday and Sunday mornings. Still great news though! The Twunt.
I know it's 7-10, just don't know if it's AM or PM.
on my pitchfork in readiness
it must be evenings. There's no way they'd replace Adam and Joe with him. It's be Armageddon.
he annouced he was moving to the morning weekend show on radio 2 this morning (apparently)
where the moderator says, "Hi
Yes, it's true. George is moving from the weekday morning slot to a weekend 6 music show.
More information on this, as and when I have it."
hidden away on weekday mornings i don't have to ever ever listen to him because i'm at my desk with itunes
weekends i love having 6music on while pottering around in the house, this is going to fuck all that up. i thought they had made a radio station that actually understood - this fucking SUCKS though. hope it is radio 2 he's going to. or 1. surely he would be more at home with all the other mindless fucks on non-nightshift radio 1?
filter him out to the weekend 6music wasteland (adam and joe and garvey excluded, obviously)to stink it up with kershaw
just don't move riley, coe, adam or joe, or garvey
and jarvis on the way too. what a good time.
the aforementioned Craid Charles funk and soul show. Does it exactly what it says on the tin obviously. He knows his shit as well.
freak zone too.
i was more just refering to a general dj that doesn't really have a musical schtick. weekend seems to do that a lot worse.
some guy who's putting out a retrospective of Davey Graham, sounded like a fascination character.
weekends are ace on 6music at the moment, except for dave pearce being a mong on sunday evenings
keep lamb on weekdays, away from me
or, better, let's rip his fucking voicebox out of his throat
I was just looking at a morrissey revuiew thrown at my Facebook and saw this - hurrah, but really most DJs are terrribly pointless and surplus to requirements. Can't we just have a robotic voice announcer tuned to 'heartbroken' on his radio voice settings?
I'm never up before 10am on the weekend, so hopefully I'll never have to sully my ears with this aural vomit again
for about 4 years now - is Liz Kershaw still embittered/on Saturday? i only listen to Radio 3 now, 'as you do'.
but 6music's worth listening to if you're ill and can't bear the Archers theme tune echoing round your addled brain or whatever (same applies to Planet Rock playlist). Or for Marc Riley, Adam and Joe, Huey Morgan on the weekend (yes it's actually good), Gideon Coe, and I think Cerys Matthews is pretty good too.
Liz Kershaw has had more than a fair crack of the whip and she should be put out to pasture.
she's much worse than lamb but gets no stick at all.
for a total of 15 hours a week! Nor is she pushed down the listener's throats with adverts and podcasts and all that shite. Nor was she brought in on a raft of John Noel agency twattery that was all hand in glove with the 6music management. Nor did she suck off Lesley Douglas for the job.
That. Is. Why.
I'll miss Adam and Joe of course, but this is a dream replacement after the dreadful Danny Wallace's fill ins.
about the Lamb news
that Lamb's leaving weekday radio
I fear they'll replace him with someone equally dire- Richard Bacon has been filling in after Lamb this week and he's almost as bad, god forbid he be chosen as his replacement...
according to the news on radio 6 just now.
She's fine by me.
Does that mean an hour off A&J or is everything moving up an hour to fill the new gap?
they must be bumping them up an hour
but what about Black Squadron?
oh, that's FINE. who's even awake then anyway?
Laverne taking over Lamb's slot. Personally, I'm not too ecstatic but still a move in the right direction. And Adam and Joe will be starting an hour later, which is no bad thing. More people will get to hear them on a weekend.
He was supposed to be taking over from Simon Mayo, I thought.

Bacon is awful! The powers-that-be....what they give with one hand, they take away with the other.
I feel a bit sorry for Iyare, he's quite innocuous. Black Squadron won't be as hardcore now!
Now 6Music just need to get rid of Shaun Keaveny, maybe replace him with Lauren Laverne. His features are awful, so embarrassingly local radio.
Is commercial radio personified - all chat, inane text-ins (last week he was actually getting listeners to text in mundane things they were up to), complete lack of interest in/knowledge of music, clearly loves to hear himself speak etc etc et al
and his mundane texts is a regular, quite funny feature.
Having discussed it with him at some length, I can vouch for him being knowledgeable and far more importantly passionate, about music.
I used to LOVE Bacon's XFM show.
but he was pretty rubbish, not dislikeable particularly, just kind of crap.
Just means that when I get up I have time to go and get the paper and some breakfast first before settling down for some radio. Sweet times.
I also really like Richard Bacon, but the chances of me ever being in front of a digital radio between 3-5pm on a Saturday are beyond minimal.
I never managed to get up at 9 anyway.
needs to hire Stewart Lee for a weekend show, that they do.
At last. Shame he's going to be bumping A&J an hour on saturdays though, but at least he's not on every day now. I like Laverne, I'm glad they gave her the slot too.
There. I said it.
Should I be hung?
nah, i like him too
not super funny, but chortlesome enough
And he's a truly lovely gentleman, good show as well.
George Lamb on the other hand, is very annoying. Anyone that greets you with "Easy!" instead of hello or anything isn't okay in my book.
I still want to see Lamb ahnialated(*sp) but a massive improvement
Bring back Gideon Coe to his former slot. :-)
The big fat goofy ugly cunt who knows fuck about fuck about music is off!
...now I can dare to put on my favourite radio station in the day without fear of hearing his stupid show.
A move to a weekend slot is a good step but he still needs to go to Radio One sharpish IMO.
And also he should take Dodgy Dave Pearce with him.
I like Leverne a lot :-)
