Who is going to be the replacement for JR.

It will be announced soon I believe.

I'll go for Lisa Tarbuck.

To be quite honest it doesn't bother me, so I'll wait until it's announced. I don't often listen at that time apart from short snatches.

It would be nice to have a good saturday morning show. a bit like the shows you used to get at that time- new releases, forthcomming releases, various guests, a good selection of new & old music.
Otherwise, Bill Oddie has been suggested- and I think he would be a good choice

No way would Bill Oddie be any good Clive.

In anycase I think he's still suffering from depression so can't imagine he'll be the one.

Bill Oddie, I can't see that myself, I like the bloke but I just can't imagine him doing a regular radio slot, and yes he is still not well.

I think Huey Morgan ought to get it as he knows his music.

Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant and Karl Pilkington. The holy trinity of comedy could harp back to their best years on XFM.

No thanks. When he covered for Ross once I only heard David Brent in his voice and the laughter. Rubbish...

What about Chris Evans? We could then have a different presenter for the weekday breakfast show. Since I never listen to Jonathan Ross anyway I'd be happy for CE to replace him.

I wouldn't, just in case 6 music gets the chop. Where would I go to on my Saturdays off? Replace with someone like Liz Kershaw who does an excellent 6 music show on Saturday afternoons if, God forbid, it is axed.

Bill Oddie - now that does take you back. He was a stand in for Derek Jameson around 1987. I remember that he didn't take kindly to Ray Moore referring to him as 'odd Billie'.

I hope it's not someone who's "credible"
I'll miss Wossy but I'd like someone like Stewpot who will play all types of music from Bay City Rollers to Neil Young.

Ed Stewart is someone who should have never been axed. Another 'Douglas Disaster' move IMO. Yes he should be brought back in some capacity. And not just at Christmas.

Stuart Maconie. I used to like his Saturday afternoon shows. Sadly I think it will go to Lisa Tarbuck, in my view Radio Horlicks.

Oh no, I'd hate to see the end of Radcliffe & Maconie in the evenings...

Number 6, what's happened to the new "Prisoner" series?

The new Prisoner series will be on our TV screens shortly.

Back on topic I think Lisa Tarbuck will get the gig.

I thought nit was supposed to be shown in March but hey, that's ITV schedulers for you. They just show things when they like.

The Prisoner DVD will be out 3rd May, so probably on ITV in April (over Easter, perhaps).
