George Lamb leaving 6 Music
HURRAH! At last, useless fifth-rate Moyles knock-off. Lauren Lavern's great, as is Cerys; both of them are actual musicians, and, as such have a genuine interest in music, Cerys asked me to mail her a list of new stuff when I spoke to her after her gig recently. Unlike half-wits like Lamb/Moyles, who are only interested in self promotion and the sound of their own annoying voices.Posted 8 years ago
Lauren is genuinely funny, unlike Lamb; Kenickie were one of the funniest live bands I've ever seen. Cerys plays brilliant music, and is continually looking for new stuff to play. While some may not like her accent, that has nothing to do with her committment to playing great music, something Lamb/Moyles never bother to do, as it would interrupt their continual flow of mindless crap. A friend's fourteen year-old son way back described Moyles as 'childish'. Pretty astute summing up, I thought.
Good luck to him on a show I won't be listening to.
I can listen to the radio again when travelling by car in the late morning. R2's offering at that time is dull and I can only take so much Woman's Hour….
I like Cerys' music and was pleasantly surprised when her was really good.
I like Lauren Laverne too.Posted 8 years agocheers_driveMember
Back of the net, Cashback, etc……!!!!!!!!!!!!
By in large 6 music is brilliant and most of the DJs are much more listenable than the radio norm but George Lamb is a complete knob who just didn't fit with the rest of the station.
Jarvis Cocker next year too 😀

It was almost as if they were trying to change the direction of 6Music by bringing in somebody fairly 'Radio1' during the day -maybe to boost the listener numbers, an odd move as people could very easily just listen to the original Radio 1 FM for that and I can only assume that he wasn't actually that popular.Posted 8 years ago
Anyone else find Chris Hawkins rather, umm, dull and weak..?
Yes. I'm not quite sure how Chris Hawkins got the gig as he's not a typical DJ type -Although he's not in-yer-face like George Lamb. I only hear the last 10 minutes of the early breakfast show which doesn't seem to involve foghorns and lots of dodgy patois and Jamaican dance-hall.Posted 8 years agoBigDummySubscriber
I can cope with Mr Lamb on his current slot, because I only have to listen to him when I'm off sick. Weekend breakfast is currently not much to my taste either, although in fairness it isn't George Lamb. I sometimes hear it if I switch on too early for Adam and Joe, which will now be a much more common occurence as they'll be later.
So I guess I'm making a small sacrifice at the weekend so that some of you can enjoy Lamb-free mornings in the week. That's cool with me, of course. You're very welcome. 😀Posted 8 years agoBigDummySubscriber
"Sunday doesn't feel that different to the other days of the week anymore. Although there was something wierd about when everything seemed to stop on a Sunday, it kind of marked out the week.
I am going to put the boringness back into Sunday. That's my mission."
Jarvis Cocker. He's going to be great. 🙂Posted 8 years ago
