Jo Whiley just said that Bright Eyes sounds like the Thrills :) He's gonna be thrilled...
I listen to Radio 1 all day every day for the sake of the 'team'. I think I prefer magic, is that the one with the hour where you have to guess the year?
is the worst thing EVER.
Truly the worst. Saw the new year in with that station. The first song after Big ben was Snap - Rhythm is a Dancer!! WTF?!??!
Amazing. Just. Amazing :)
you sooo want a scrap don't you!
All radio stations are shite really though aren't they. You just get the odd good presenter.
Why on earth did you see the New Year in with a crappy radio station??
My guess - you were on your way somewhere REALLY good, just stuck in a taxi?
where you guess the year
You really are getting old now. Horlicks and an early night for you.
and I haven't drunk for 3 days - THREE DAYS!
Had two glasses of wine after work yesterday, but that was medicinal..
you're addicted to booze!
sweating profusely and staring with glazed eyes? He can do that alright.
is why i stopped listening to the radio.
because someone rang up and my PC wouldn't work. bah!
if you ask me.
Not Heart, dire dire commercial radio!
there's 6 of us arguing over what channel it's on.. the guess the year thing at least provokes some discussion..
lets see who she compares them to.
I'd compare it to the sound of a rancid weasel in dayglo legwarmers being torn limb from limb by rampant Shoreditch eejits.
forgot to pay attention,
We need more e-headbutting of wannabe Magic FM listeners.
I can't believe no one's mentioned Xfm...
We've covered them all, now.
Ah, the old days when Xfm used to be good. Actually about 10 years ago now. :'(
That's what we have in our office. They played Yo La Tengo less than an hour ago!
You can play it through your computer though from the BBC site.
Now they're playing American Girl! I love this radio station.
by the anti fun police and it can't make any noise :(
Ah well, ruby ruby ruby RUBY!
See, it's not all bad is it?
we only have AM radio in Wales sadface
and Bright Eyes is more overrated than the Animal COllective - IS THAT POSSIBLE?
she is mumsy.
how can you describe her "down with my teenage kids" style as being morally objectionable?
she's just horrible and without sounding sad, just a 'put in' who doens't really give a toss whether she's presenting a music programme or weeding the garden.
i don't think she is terribley exciting at all but i don't think most radio one listeners care if it's a music show or a weeding the garden show so long as their mates think it's cool.
to be fair she has given alot of people their 'first listens' to alot of bands. some of which have been awful.
