Shaun Keaveny



Seems an odd move to push him out imo.

On the basis that he tends to play it relatively safe in the music he plays, and also seems to be very well thought of in the music world (judging by all the Twitter messages I've seen over the past few days).

I know some people will want more diverse music played on 6, and that's fair enough, but at the end of the day the station's performance is pretty much measured on viewing figures. And whilst I could be totally wrong here, I would have thought it'd be Keaveny and Lamacq who get the best audiences because that whole indie guitar genre will make up a big part of 6's demographic.

Rumours that he fell foul of the BBC's "political impartiality rules".
 
Haven’t listened to all of it, what makes you think that ?

I worked on a site for 3 weeks where it was on all day every day. The thought of Vaughn or Moyles makes me shudder.

Yep, too much in love with their own voices, and I find it samey with just the odd listen, but for the odd 15-30 minutes occasionally, and not every day, I prefer it to 6. Laverne and Hobbs play some right shit.

X is absolute tripe. I love the Stone Roses but that f***ing station could easily make me hate them.

Mind I can't be arsed with most of daytime on 6 either. I swear Laverne used to have a personality. Now she's just bland wallpaper like Hobbs, where everything is 'beautiful'.

Shame he's gone like. Was good crack. Assumed it would be for a young up and comer instead of just a sideways step with Charles (who is also decent crack).

Missed keavenys last show on Friday so just finished listening on the Sounds app. I picked up on the ‘not my choice’ comment at the end too! Really surprised by this.
Also don’t get on with the new presenters either. Gemma C & Jamz Supernova don’t offer anything and seem to struggle to speak between songs.

Worrying direction for 6music imo.
 
Listened to his leaving speech again today, almost breaking down when he thanked his wife, I love that sort of emotion and ending with The Carpenters. Class.

Really surprised Matt Everitt wasn’t on the last show. They were brilliant as a duo and really worked well together. Still vividly remember the morning they broke the news to the world that Bowie had died.

Missed the end of his last show cos I had a work call to take. Wasn't that fussed on him at first but he grew on me over the 18 month I've been listening while working from home.

I like Craig Charles mind so I'll enjoy listening to him.

No radio show has come close Mark and Lard though. Maybe Radcliffe and Maconie. Maybe.
