That's like the two Beacon Radio stations round here, 97.2 is just "beacon" but 103.1 is "beaconSH" (for Shropshire). Also Smooth Radio is "SMOOTH-W" and in the East Midlands it's "SMOOTH-E" (a...

Re: Dead Air

I do remember once hearing a local station which should have been broadcasting a networked show. For whatever reason, the audio feed of the network was not there, but the remote commands to fire jingles, adverts, etc. still worked. The result was after a minute of silence, the emergency CD would ki...

Re: GCap to network in daytime

I doubt Trent, Ram and Leicester Sound would all take it either as these stations overlap a lot.

Allegedly. The comments some of the members of the site have made, in this thread, and others in the past, are libellous, and the only reason I haven't done anything about it - apart from ask Martin to remove certain Photoshopped images on one occasion - is because it's not worth me wasting my time ...

There are 020 1 numbers too. These kind of numbers are used by phone companies and OfCom (and is how I can tell if a call I take is from OfCom monitoring 118 services).

Just to turn it around - people who do something else at the same time as ringing me up to find a telephone number annoys me because they never listen properly.
