I find Mr Keaveny a bit marmitey. But I think it was over exposure during lockdown last year.

Apparently Craig Charles is taking over - I wonder if they will get someone new to do his Saturday slot?

I can't bear Craig Charles, so I'm gutted. That said, I barely heard Shaun in the afternoons but had loved his breakfast show for a long time.

Now I am back in the office more I do not listen to so much weekday R6. I am just pleased they finally gave the awful Liz Kershaw the bullet and hired a decent DJ that fits better with the Saturday afternoon/evening music offer.

Now if they could just persuade Steve Lamacq to take a different slot.

I have just completely got out of the habit of listening to the radio.

I never listen to the radio either, except occassionally in the car, on the rare occasions we have one.

I can’t believe Steve Lamaq is still allowed on the radio. That voice and his appalling music drive me up the bend.

Sabacious - 10 Sep 2021 18:05:05 (#2007 of 2017)

Steve Lamacq is on the radio while Marl Lamarr does nothing is an odd state of affairs. I was a fan of God’s Jukebox.

Who is Shaun Keaveney? What is Radio 6? - I know it exists but I don't know what it does.

None of you cared when Ian Skelly was moved to a different slot on Radio 3, did you?

Craig is a great radio man. Far too many White Northern on the WIRELESS ANYWAY.

I listen to the radio a lot, I even have it on at night. Usually R6 on a Saturday and I like Craig Charles.

He's a good broadcaster. Trunk of Funk /Punk features was well received.

I have to do this if I say anything nice about someone.

To be fair to the youth the 'unironically' prefix does clear up a lot of confusion and would have saved me being accidentally rude to people for the last 40 years.

New thread? I can't seem to start them properly in beta.
