Rumours that he fell foul of the BBC's "political impartiality rules".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.
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.
X is absolute tripe. I love the Stone Roses but that f***ing station could easily make me hate them.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.
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.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.
Very moving. I know he was a bit marmite for people in terms of his presenting style (it took me a while to warm to him) but he seems like a thoroughly decent bloke.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.
