Because they have a list of records on their playlist that they have to play on certain shows a specified number of times in a week. This is decided upon in a meeting the previous week and changes on a weekly basis in order to fit in with their base listener demographic.
Which is exactly what a play list is.Posted 7 years agoFlaperonMember
I had the displeasure to listen to Steve “factoid” Wright yesterday, Dear God..what an atrocious and obnoxious self promoting berk.
Amen to that. Little while ago Graham Norton played a Steve Wright trailer. After it finished there was a five second silence, and GN simply said quietly: “God, and I thought I was annoying.”Posted 7 years agoedlongMember
Planet rock on t’internet works for me
Yeah, cos at least they don’t play the same old tunes over and over again, like they only have one CD and it’s “Jezza Clarkson’s Driving Rock Classics”. Oh, wait a minute..
6music ftw. If you want your guitars a bit louder, then conceivably Kerrang, as long as you like the Foo Fighters, of which they seem to play rather a lot.Posted 7 years agohammeriteMember
It’s amusing the little campaigns that go on. Deacon Blue were all of a sudden the best band ever and their new song played to death because they were doing “an intimate performance” exclusive to R2.
Steve Wright is a bit strange, I keep listening but not sure why. Factoid followed by long jingle into the news, followed by doing the traffic persons job for them, followed by guest where he’ll ask 3 questions and then just read out the gig list straight from the notes given to him by the PR person and repeat.
Does anyone find Ken Bruce, his anecdotes (do people really e-mail these stories in?) and banter with the traffic woman annoying too?Posted 7 years agolisterSubscriber
I keep getting told that I’m old enough for R2. I’m not. It’s like the 90s never happened.
I keep getting told that I’ll love R6. I don’t, but believe me I’ve tried. I’ve heard that they have amazing new music on, and classic stuff that I like. I’ve even had texts telling me to tune in NOW for something I’ll like.
I turn it on and there is someone talking. Everytime. The other day Cerys Matthews was doing some shite 6th form poetry, for about 10 minutes.
I despair, because I know how much unique recorded music the BBC must have in it’s archives…Posted 7 years agoCountZeroMember
Lister, you really need to listen for a bit longer than twenty minutes. Yes, there’s chat, but it’s often very funny, Cerys does the poetry, but she plays a huge variety of stuff from around 1920 to the present day, Radcliffe and Maconie played Opeth, Tegan and Sara, and other really good stuff today. The other afternoon they had Sally Lindsay turn up, and their entire program went out the window, but I was killing myself laughing, they were really funny. I can cope with chat mixed with the music, if its funny and intelligent. Believe me, 6Music costs me a fortune because of all the new stuff I keep hearing on there, and Stuart’s ‘Freakier Zone’ on Friday night will show you some really unusual stuff.Posted 7 years ago
Best radio station on the planet, I’ve been listening since 2005, and discovered more new music as a result than I could have imagined possible.jota180Member
It’s the ‘boys upstairs’ fault 🙂
Well you cant turn him into a company man
you cant turn him into a whore
and the boys upstairs just dont understand anymore
well the top brass dont like him talking so much
and he wont play what they say to play
and he dont wanna change what dont need to change
And there goes the last DJ
who plays what he wants to play
and says what he wants to say
hey hey hey
and there goes your freedom of choice
there goes the last human voice
and there goes the last DJ
and some folks say there gonna hang him so high
casue you just cant do what he did
theres some things you just cant put in the minds of those kids
as we celebrate mediocrity all the boys upstairs wanna see
how much youll pay for what you used to get for free

+1 for CountZero – sometimes you have to give things a chance to shine &, my word, does 6 Music do that!! Although, one mans aural pleasure is another mans aural pain.
I do have to confess to listening to and enjoying Steve Wright on Radio 2 as well – looks like it’s just me!!Posted 7 years ago
