... I can't remember a time when there wasn't a new single by ***** ***** out and on the playlist."

Thus quoth someone on Radio 2 within the last 24 hours. Can you guess who, and about whom?

Sarah Kennedy about Katie Melua? At least she didn't out her again!

Half right, Ian. 't was actually Alex Lester who said it.

It's truly bad, even by KM standard.

He played Stevie Ray Vaughan a couple of records later as an antidote. Cool

Even though my wellies are still stuck firmly in the mud after that "oh so boring" Bicycles in Beijing nonsense, I have to admit to warming slightly to Katie after seeing her on Buzzcocks a few weeks ago.
She has a great sense of humour and, although I can't recall how her latest song goes, I didn't think it was too bad....
But please, not 10 times a day.. Shocked

Yes, she was good on Buzzcocks, does the Intro round well and looks to have a pleasing personality. It may be the songs - this one, If The Lights Go Out, sounds as if she can't make her mind up what key it's supposed to be in. I've only heard it the once, but it's on the A list (no release date as a single yet) so we shall get peppered.

Written by Mike Batt. She has said that this will be the last album she does with him. Perhaps, when she's given less maudlin material, she'll sound better.

(Sorry, realise this should have been in Music, but it gives the Quiz section some traffic!)

There are worse songs on the playlist, and I do think she's more of a "Radio 2 artist" (in that she's someone who a typical Radio 2 daytime listener may actually buy) than some of those on the playlist.

That said, I am puzzled why other such artists (eg Status Quo) never seem to get their new stuff played.
