I really like Scala but the adverts do my head in.

Just a shame it's GHR, which is all advertising.

Any idea what is happening?

Switching to Scala Radio evenings.

What the **** is "Mindfulness Music"?

You do get the impression the chap is being put out to grass

I did listen to Scala for a brief time when Simon Mayo first showed up on there, but couldn't get into it.

I think I'm more into forgetfulness than mindfulness.

Oh god. Jimmy Osmond is on Boom with Tweedly Dee or whatever it's called. Shame on anyone who bought it!

If Putin is ever brought to justice, put him in a straight jacket and make him listen to it 24 hours a day, along with his Kremlin gorillas.

That's wishfulness.

I do like Scala, although the adverts get very annoying, and think Allinson fits in well.

Richard also has a Saturday afternoon spot on Greatest Hits radio.

Not sure I can get into Scala.

I do wish there were less adverts on these stations.
