Radio 2 is wonderous. I always wake up with Wogan, a gentler bedfellow I do not know. Jeremy Vine has good taste too and Stuart Maconie is always excellent. Rossy has already declared his love for Neil and once they back an artist they play their tracks to death.

Babs has already registered on the Beeb site.

I'm not sure how effective Radio 2 is as far as chart positions go.

i don't understand, they've been a tiny little seemingly no-hoper band for ages. why so big now? madness. perhaps leaving jeepster helped, but dunno, guess it's all about if the radio wants to play you or not. weird. not really heard their new song much though.

I very rarely listen to Radio One any more ( Mark and Lard excepted, who seem to do their own thing anyhow with regard to choice of music) which I find quite sad, having been a listener since I was about eleven years old.

I don't listen to Radio 1. Sometimes people will get in my car and ask which memory button Radio 1's under. I say "it's not. I've only got six memory spaces and I'm not letting it fill one of them."
Looking at that A, B and C list, there are two things I find alarming. One is the number of really bad tunes. I saw one tune I class as "good", or "better than alright", and that's The Darkness. And it's on Virgin's A list. There were only about 5 tunes on the entire list I'd class as "alright or better".

The second thing I noticed is the alarming number of songs that aren't released until next month, or even March! Songs are getting massive airplay weeks before they're released. This has to be part of the reason more people are downloading singles and not buying them - why wait 6 weeks for a song you'll probably be bored of by then? It doesn't make any sense.

If you want a chart position, Radio 2's useful. If you want a good chart position, you need Virgin or Radio 1. And if you want a top chart position, you need the hordes of commercial radio stations. Can't see TDC getting on them, although I would love them to (the first station to add CHBB to their playlist gets me listening to them in the neat future!)

Hey, I'm at York too!

Am I right in thinking that you post on the Benfolds.org message board? I seem to remember talking to you about the tribute CD getting to the UK way back last year.

It's a small world.

I'm waiting until the single comes out on March 22nd, then I will listen to the CD for the first time on March 23rd, when I'm in the airport, on my way to Florida. Thus my entire audio-visual TDC experience shall be realised.

I have to vehemently disagree. Both Simon and Mark are passionate about music and were personally responsible for championing loads of interesting music on Radio One in its and their heyday. Both are a huge loss to regular daytime music radio Terry Wogan has no clue about music, is always interrupting the records with his inane chatter and is probably senile to boot ! ( But my mum likes him!) ;-)

Grrr, curse my working from Mondays to Thursdays. I shall listen to the radio all day today in the hope of catching it, if only to see if Maurice Gibb's backing is as wonderous as is claimed on another board Smile

And, as everyone knows, I always enjoy waking up to the rich brown tones of Herr Togmeister, Doctor Pauly and the gang. Sarah Kennedy can ** right off, though. Her and her church coffee morning humour...

Indeed it is... three York students in one thread!

Yeah, I'm the self same mongoose that posts on benfolds.org. The tribute CD is actually finished and almost ready to be launched! It's mainly going to be a download thingy rather than the full-on CD idea. Watch this space!

Indeed... she's far too twee for that time in the morning. Gets right on my nerves. She stopped a song halfway through once because she said it sounded a bit miserable. The silly bint. Happily, she's been off sick this week.

I take it there was no sign of our Billy? I hate it when I tune into something expecting a particular item - I sat through two hours of GMTV once because I'd heard Tom Baker was going to be on. I was annoyed when he wasn't anywhere to be seen, to say the least. But he had just given a newspaper interview in which he said he'd be sick in Eamon Holmes' lap if he ever saw him, so I shouldn't have been too surprised.

Sorry, I seem to have gone off at a tangent.

It's nice but not as exciting as the rest of the album. I think I need to relisten to Billy Bird. It's cos he's changed it more significantly than the others. It is good though. Album is a lot better than I was expecting it to be on a brief listening. I thought it was gonna be another Regeneration (which isn't a bad thing). I was expecting to be more bored by it but it's ace! I shouldn't have doubted our Neily. Smile Bloody hell we've been waiting long enough it shoulda been good!

Stuart Maconie will play "Come Home Billy Bird" again on his show tonight. Tune in to his drive time show between 5-7pm on BBC Radio 2 (88-91fm).

He first played the single on Jan 27th, the same day as Xfm and BBC Radio 1.

Hooray, I've been listening intently all week on me way home and am now finally going to be rewarded. I couldn't have taken much more, y'know. Did you hear his John Hurt interview? Awful.

John Hurt was fabulously drunk - you could almost hear the sweat dripping from Maconie's forehead.

Yay Maconie! Emails ahoy!

Pah, they should show all interviewers the Wogan/Best encounter of 1989. That'll show 'em how to cope. Defining childhood moment, that.

Oh, and cheers for the PM, Mr. CCC. Just got it this afternoon as puter access isn't common as I move round the departments. You can find more of the same on the BBC's Who website, in the clips section. The best is when fake Tom phones up the real Tom. Smile
