Adam and Joe (and other radio maundering).

As the deckchairs are rearranged on the good ship 6 Music, Adam and Joe are going to be doing a show on Saturdays from 9-12 a.m.

I think we really have to write off the 'put GLR on as a national station on digital' experiment as one that has run its course. I understand the Big British Castle (as A&J refer to it) is short of money, and also the bandwidth on the DAB multiplex will come in handy.

Also, whilst I am whinging pointlessly, every tweak that they make to the Radio 1 evening schedules seems to me to make things worse. In particular I find the 'Huw Stephens Introduces..' thing irksomely well meaning in a bad 70s yoof program sort of way. And WTF is the point at having Huw 'expert in Welsh bands' Stephens presenting the ENGLISH stream when they split Radio 1 into four bits for the irksomely well meaning in a bad 70s yoof program sort of way opt-outs?
I mean, clearly no-one can replace John Peel but I thought actually that the first post-Peel configuration with Rob Da Bank standing in for Peel was the best and it has gone steadily down-hill since, and I do think having a separate new music show is a big mistake, and the 'this week we are concentrating on the music scene in Hereford with our friends from BBC Hereford and Worcester' AAAAAARGH!
