A sad loss. Crying or Very sad

Anyone else finds it odd that R2 mentions in the news how great GSH was but when did R2 last play any of his tracks ? Rolling Eyes

It's similar with their documentaries they tell us how great artists / record labels are/were BUT you rarely if ever hear anything by them played on the station Rolling Eyes

That is very true and a bit poor from R2

6 Music has been giving The Revolution Will Not Be Televised loads of airplay, but they were doing it before he died.

I hear that Pink Floyd are being trailed as 'great' but we don't hear much of them normally on R2 do we ? Rolling Eyes
