BBC 6 Music latest flavour of the month
I guess they’ve put some effort into getting Wayne C in for interview (and the band for some sort of session?), so recouping the “investment”
6M has a bit too much emphasis on heavy-rotation “favourites” for me – only noticed recently as I’ve had a couple of days working at home with it on. No way could I listen all day regularly.
*Is disappoint*, or whatever the cool kids say
Oddly, haven’t heard any Fall. Is it good then Al ?Posted 4 years ago
I thought they had moved a way from their “1977 and the fallout years were great”, to “John Grant”
TBH it is way too cliquey – it is like a radio version of Private Eye’s Psued’s Corner ….
Whilst everyone else in mediaworld seems to know that Radio 6 is where you go to die, the presenters on Radio 6 to think they are scaling heights in the left field and “making a difference”
All of a sudden, Chris Moyles is beginning to look talentedPosted 4 years ago
Excellent station that sometimes plays stuff I don’t like. Probably best to suck it up for a month sugar-tits and switch over if it’s really annoying you. And possibly write a letter to your political representative instead of moaning on internet forums where you feel you have some kind of voice.Posted 4 years agobravohotel8erMember
I love 6 and the Flaming Lips are one of those bands who are way more popular than you might imagine.
I think 6 works really well, though it did go through a bit of a rocky patch. However, the absence of George Lamb has improved things tenfold!
I think the BBC were worried that the audience was too white, male andPosted 4 years ago
30-45 at one stage, but you appeal to who you appeal to…plenty of other
radio stations out there (whether Beeb or otherwise) to cater to different demographics. 6 reminds me of the Radio 1 Evening Session back in the early/mid 90’s when both Lamacq and Whiley were hosting and that’s no bad thing.KevaMember
6Music is the only radio station I listen to these days. It does have it’s wonky moments though, that Daft song is one that could do with being erased from the play list and the other thing that’s becomming tiring is the banging donk thing. I don’t want to put a banging donk on it thank you, no matter how many times it’s repeated. I just don’t, so stop saying it.
I heard some stuff by a band called Wolf People the other day which sounded pretty good, i quite liked that, worth a bit of investigating.Posted 4 years agodavid jeyMember
Like any (BBC, at least) station, daytime is more ‘conservative’ and playlisted, but still my default choice. All the daytime DJs at least care about music and are knowledgable. I think ANY station would get wearing if I had it on all day, every day.
Evenings and weekends are brilliant, which is most of what I listen to. Freak Zone, Jarvis, Cerys all completely unlike anything I’ve heard on the radio and perfect for a Sunday. Marc Riley a true enthusiast/champion of bands old and new (and is very self-aware that he is a grumpy old man!).Posted 4 years agollamaMember
I quite like the Flaming Lips, but I take your point they do labour it a bit. The last time it was Primal Scream this that and the other for weeks. Now I really like them, but they were totally over hyping what is a pretty good album, but its not that good.
In the day time, I don’t mind Shaun Keaveny, and I don’t mind Radcliffe and Maconie. I don’t like Lauren Laverne and I don’t like Steve bloody annoying perpetual 6th form student Lamacq.
Jarvis’ show is pretty good – I will make a point to listen to it.
Jsut about to turn it off as Lauren is on.
Well after the mondaysPosted 4 years agosadexpunkSubscriber
haha see im the opposite from most on this thread. quite happily listen to it all day in the week, but not too keen on cerys, jarvis, gilles, etc, altho i accept its good stuff for those that do like it.
i just love listening to the eclectic mix of songs and genres, some id never give the time of day to if i didnt hear it on there. loads of the old stuff that youve forgotten about, this morning ive heard the pistols, cult, mondays, pixies etc with decent newish music such as john grant and laura marling for instance.
also love listening to the radcliffe/maconie chat, steve lamacq and marc riley stories, theyre all interesting, just cant imagine not having 6 music now.Posted 4 years agomonkfishMember
It’s by far the best station out there IMO, you want to try listening to XFM for more than half an hour just to see how varied the playlist is.
However I can’t stand the breakfast dj though who seems to think he’s on BBC 6 “i’d rather be a comedian doing my stupid impressions than playing this shit” and not 6 music
I like all the other daytime presenters and Huey at the weekendPosted 4 years ago
