Consistently irritated by the presence of Amy Lamé on Saturday afternoons, frustrating that the fucking NIGHT CZAR (her actual government-appointed title) who sat back and accepted a 200% pay rise for supposedly supporting London's nightlife whilst seemingly watching it get fucked over by shite legislations that shaft grassroots venues and have most places shut their doors before midnight. She name-drops herself every 5 minutes between songs so I have to be constantly reminded of how much I don't like her. Except I don't because I don't listen to her station. But if I did I'd be annoyed, I can tell you that.

Yeah she's a dickhead but I find it easy to avoid since Sundays were long a bit boring imo. Wasn't really much of a fan of Guy Garvey or Jarvis even if one of them seemed inoffensive and the other alright.

Javis often had good people sitting in though (Leila Moss, Pauline Black etc).

Any other rec's for online stations that are worth a pop? I know of Resonance

You probably know of FIP but if not they play a bit of everything, there's no smug, and the presenters have a pleasing melodious French that I don't understand a fucking word of.  BRILL.

I didn't know any of that about Amy Lame. Disappointing to hear, as I always thought she came across as a really nice, likeable person when she was one of Danny Baker's radio sidekicks all those years ago. Oh well.

Have been giving Worldwide fm a try when 6music doesn't grab me, is sometimes decent. Any other rec's for online stations that are worth a pop? I know of Resonance

I was also going to say NTS but I tend to select interesting sounding shows to listen to from the archive rather than listening live. I really like Rum Punch because I’m a calypso lover.

Resonance had a really nice funk/soul show called The New Orleans Strut but either it was seasonal or they just got rid during a shake-up which was a shame.

The Do!! You!! Breakfast Show with Charlie Bones is excellent on NTS as live listen.

I really detest those stings/trailers as they just seem to me to be trying to enforce a "We're all part of the same big cuddly 6 Music family" atmosphere, which feeds into the thing of shows not really being allowed to have an individual identity as everything has to be part of the same "brand". Stuff like of every daytime DJ having to play "Album Of The Day" tracks even when it's music they clearly aren't interested in and wouldn't usually play. You can sense some of the presenters chafing against that, I'm sure Radcliffe & Maconie have made a few sly remarks about it over the years.

6 Music aren't alone in this one, it's a 'radio cliche you'd like to fuck off', but you know the advertisments where the presenter does promotes their show, then they have someone, usually a husky voiced woman, repeat a couple of words through a filter to emphasise the key points? Well there's a Nemone one at the minute where it sounds like she's doing it herself. Perhaps she is and the penny never dropped she's the voice artist for that effect across the station. Either way it sounds even naffer.

I'm getting really fed up of hearing Squid and Arlo Parks all the time. They just bore me.

Squid are appalling. They're the epitome of that "Check me out I've got a wacky voice lol" modern indie trend. And of course the lead singer's called Ollie.

Listened to Jamz Supernova a few times now and think she really is a good fit.

Oh God yes, I’m getting sick to death of those voices - Mush are the worst offenders.

They are playing Squid so often I feel like they are trying to 'push me in' to listening to them.

Yes and the blessed Madonna in the evening.  Saturday all the way through is decent now I think.

...glad I wasn't the only one who was getting annoyed hearing Squid!

Yeah BM has been playing some 'last disco' stuff tonight which has been great. She just played Dolly Parton's Potential New Boyfriend, which I don't think I've ever heard before but is a banger!
