I know they are short of money but have they decided to no longer put playlists on the website?

Several have none and others have obviously not been completed in full. I can't believe Paddy O'Connell only played 3 tracks in the whole of Friday's show and Simon Mayo is only showing 5 tracks in 2 hours. I've not listened much this week so have I missed an announcement of some kind?

Please don't say we have to go to Farce Book to find them...............

I noticed that yesterday, it seems that none of the live shows had any playlists showing. I've just looked at some of the 6 Music show pages for yesterday and there are track lists on those, so I suspect it's just a glitch on the Radio 2 pages.

I noticed the other week that they've moved to 'live' playlists that should update during the show, rather than afterwards - but that doesn't appear to be working. Wonder if it's automatic and broken, or a manual job without anybody to do it?

Richard Allinson's Sat show had none but today's has a playlist. Confused POTP didn't have one yesterday either.

Sounds like something's not working properly Ian.

Studio & Equipment problems. Playing out two shows at once. Now playlist problems not updated on website. I'm guessing with all the work going on around Western House, could be effecting Radio 2.

What kind of work are you talking of Mark?

Helen, I too am annoyed about the lack of 'music played' information. I can't always listen to the programmes and always like to see what's played on POTP and SOT70s, although SOT60s music is always provided.

In fact I find the new website totally unhelpful. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I agree about the website Schiz, it's not a patch on what it used to be.

The playlists seem to be back on again but not the weekend ones. I've noticed that they sometimes appear during the week but not as yet.
