Radio 2 has that effect on me at 7:00am mon-Fri & much of the weekend.

I don't expect them to play Bill Bailey's 'Yo Asda!' song.

"The playlist is strictly vetted, sometimes in unexpected ways. Lily Allen's LDN was only aired after the word "Tesco" was excised, while Rihanna's Russian Roulette didn't make the list because the lyric employs suicide as a metaphor ("It's not a responsible message for children")."

They're not quite so circumspect in HMV. Even during school holidays, with the store footfall inflated by under 16s, songs with F in them can be frequently heard over their speakers. (Probably makes them feel at home, or school)

"These stations are staffed by radio professionals, and run along the lines of real stations: a major player in "retail radio", as the industry is known, is former Radio 1 presenter Bruno Brookes, who runs a company that sets up stations for retail customers,"

Now why does that not surprise me?

Actually, I was quite surprised to hear Bic Runga being played while we were in both Body Shop and Molton Brown one day this week.
