Was travelling upto Southport last friday and caught Roger Day. So he does a networked BBC Local show every Friday evening? Very good and entertaining.

Also Richard Allinson voices some of the jingles for Oxford too. I can hear his voice in it, unless it's Gary Davis Laughing Wink

I love listening to Keith Skues on local radio.
He used to do the 10 till 1 slot in the evenings on Eastern Counties Radio.
Sadly this was knocked down to Sundays and Mondays where he did the Skues collection and then Pirate Radio Skues.
Again sadly this has recently been knocked down to just Sunday nights and I'm worried that it won't be long before they get rid of him all together.
Every now and then he has a record dealer on called Eric White, and they do a feature on a certain record label. Last night it was about the Fontana label, which like the rest of his show was really interesting.

There was a guy playing Light Music on Radio Lancashire tonight who seemed quite bitter - he complained that the outlets for that type of music are dwindling and went on to whinge about all those people who watch television nowadays!

TV is hardly a new fangled invention! These presenters really should check their baggage at the door before entering the studio. Laughing

We've been threatened with a new commercial station in Hull. KCFM will broadfcast on 99.8 fm. It can't be any worse that Humberside.

It'll be owned by GCap, no doubt, and be a clone of all the other so-called "local" stations - all taking the same ID package, all accepting the identical playlist update feed from the central server, all with a "dork and bimbo" breakfast presenter team!

Weren't Dave Lee Travis, Jimmy Savile, Tony Blackburn and "Diddy" David Hamilton named as being involved with this station?

Blackburn wouldn't know where Hull is. on His Map of the UK, is says "Here be Dragons" north of Watford.
