6 music will go the same way as xfm?
yes I am -Steve Lamacq has proved, that with a bit of a free reign, he really is just an indie saddo with little or no taste, and the 6music news is about as indepth as a conversation with a dying relative and makes 3am girls look like the Frankfurt School of Social Theorists (go one someone, take that as your band name)
Even Gideon Coe seems to have got brain fever as well - however Maconie saves the day and even Collins has an independent thought. liz kershaw however is the radio version of Alan Partridge (yes I know the show started on radio, but you know what i mean)
Come on please sort if out 6Music!!!
But the state of xfm makes my heart cry little red tears.
It used to be so so good, now its just kt tunstall and jack johnson on repeat.
play Jack Johnson?
are you serious?
I only ever listen to it for Xsposure now
When they were advertising the sxsw festival and saying there were going to be live shows from bands like the Zutons, the Magic Numbers and I was just like RARRRRRRRRRRRRRRAGHHHHHHHHHHHG there are SO MANY new, class bands out there and you give us this!
its better than any other radio station. anyone that plays california girls on a tuesday mornign gets my vote
i just hope they dont fuck it up!
Phill Jupitus in the mornings has been really grating recently, though slightly less than whoever that is standing in for him at the moment.
Still, he did play Dinosaur Jr the other morning
'from the archives' they play 'Run' form Glastonbury 2003 by NO! Patrol - so so backward - and they don't have advertising obligations like Xfm - and why has Craig Charles STILL got a show on there?
listened to his show but it does seem a bit odd?
and why dont they have a blues show?
he's lining himself up as the next Peel I think which is just fucking sad - one thing they dont' want though is sub Zane Lowe clones -they need people with silly daft love and knowledge of music with of kilter personalities
Also now you don't get your emails rad out much -when I first started listening Andrew Collins would read out every email I sent - usually slagging off his choice of music - I'm such a prick aren't i?
must read before I post!!
john kennedy's exposure on xfm.
John Kennedy's show is still good but that's because he's not stappled by the ears to the playlist.
When I was decorating a few weeks ago, I had X on and within an hour they were repeating the same songs eg. Jack shit Johnson.
The XList is sometimes good too.
is also a playlist! always the same stuff!
I doubt anyone *really* would request Fools Gold or Step On, I mean surely you're heard these (shit) songs enough???
To be honest I'm not really qualified to judge xfm anymore since I gave up on it a long time ago really. I listen in the evenings sometimes but thats it. I used to be a hardcore listener though.
I've given up on radio altogether, I don't know of anything decent.
is that the uk/us show? Becuase I quite like that.
I also sometimes listen to Jimmy Carr on a Sunday, I know, smug but mildly amusing. Sorry.
was ian camfield's show..
i do like listening to adam & joe on saturdays, they're really funny.
i love xfm, i've blagged so many gig tickets over the years.
used to be the best
always was the best, but I will listen to Jimmy and Iain if I can't be arsed to get out of bed on a sunday.
I have never got Adam and Joes humour.
listen to the people who replaced John Peel?
who they might be. is it jo whiley?
jim from Doves and Keke Rosberg - i.e I know that the first person is on there but for the other two? That slot died with Peel - late night radio holds no thrill for me anymore - but am so glad that once upon a time it did!
and that makes me feel like people who never 'got' the Office.
and comparing Rick Gervais to Peel is like the comparing The Stonk with Good Vibrations
i dont think hes great but at least hes not annoying. and i'm still to hear a song repeated in the mornign when i listen in bed which is a bonus
Probably not more than 1/2 hour I listen to him for though. The replacement bloke is awful, but not quote as bad as the sidekick Wilding, he just really really grates and tells really stupid obviously made up for the program 'look at me I'm scared of my cellar' stories.
Sometimes I just go for Radio4 nowadays, I am turning into my Dad.
to radio 4 and hes younger than me. it just means your slightly more intelligent than 6 music
Yeah, what was that cellar story? Something about the Yorkshire Ripper? Pillock.
If it isn't Radio 6 then it is Radio 2. Funny how people that are crap on telly are quite good on radio?
are just some that spring to mind...
