Let's get some proper DJ's with musical knowledge, character, experience and someone who can drive the desk and not rely on gimmicks and texts and silly competitions, on to Radio 2 at the weekend.

Ever since we lost Richard Allinson and Stuart Maconie, and since the celebrities have taken over, it's been dire. I suggest that if we can get Radcliffe and/or Maconie, or Allinson again it would be a start, but I'd also like to see Gary Crowley with a Saturday slot.

I've put a comment (with links) on the 'Gripes' board with regard Crowley, whom I rate. He was excellent back in the day and on 6 Music recently, and on his London Radio show.

Let's have some proper DJ's!!

Come on Shennan, let's have Gary Crowley on the books.

I would like to hear Mark & Stuart at the weekends. Also Richard should be given more than an overnight show at the weekends.

i have always liked Gary Crowley but can't see it happening regarding R2 as cover on R6 fine but don't think his style would suit R2

Did you see his mention in Mojo in regard to Department S's 'Is Vic There'?

He was in an early line-up of the band.

Forgive my ignorance, but would Gary Crowley be too similar to Mark Lamarr and Bob Harris?
