Shaun Keaveny

As a bloke I like him but I find his show dull, certainly after following the great MAH.

Good to see CG getting a daily show. His show during lockdown was a real highlight during a really shit time.

I must say I did grow to quite like Keaveny's shite patter!

Craig Charles is a good replacement though, was canny when he stood in for Lamacq last year and his taste is a lot broader than just the soul and funk stuff he is mostly recognised for.
Not really into his funk & soul stuff but enjoyed going running & his trunk of punk came on.

I’d imagine he’d have to be more diverse than his normal shows as I wouldn’t bother on an afternoon for just his normal stuff.

It's a good move, but I never got Keaveny to start with.
They'd rather play the new single by Sampa the Great than the Manic Street Preachers nowadays. It's a completely different station than it was a few years ago (and not for the better).
But 15 years ago they would be the only mainstream station playing Wu Tan, or Public Enemy etc along side Manic Street Preachers. Now they play Sampa alongside Idles. It's a music station that tries to cover everything. Sounds like you have just got stuck and become a radio X listener.

Idles are shite but I get your point. Tbf if Keaveny ends up on X I will probably follow him there.

Leaving 6music. I know he’s a bit marmite, but I like him.


it was curtains for him after his breakfast slot, where he was much better suited, what I loved about his show just wasn't there after the move
 
See Craig Charles is taking the slot.

Huge ratings opportunity missed not giving RadMac their slot back.

As much as I like CG’s music, it’s an indication of the stylistic change to 6 music on a weekday. I never listen to it now.
My word, there is only one person worse on 6 Music than the painfully unfunny Keaveny and that's the wheezing Craig Charles. What a shame and a missed opportunity.

I’m happy with that, could’ve been far worse.

Did not see Craig Charles coming. Strange choice for me, especially as he's strongly associated with Radio 2 as much as 6M. No idea what the target demographic is for 6 nowadays; must have different age groups every 3 hours, listening figures yoyoing up and down.

Two less shows for Hawkins now - he's coming off early mornings on Sat / Sun with Amy Lame in his place. Hardest working bloke in radio has earned those lie ins :lol:

You could say the same about Mark Radcliffe and he's probably one of the best on the station.

Touche but RadMac have been shunted out to weekend breakfast (4 hrs) already and Craig Charles is getting 15 hours a week all of a sudden. Big leap.
