Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

One ad that's been grinding my gears recently has been Swyft.

Re: Fuel situation in your area

There's no denying that since panic buying has stopped, the shortages have reduced. However, if you look in the right place, you'll find that there's still shortages all over the place. https://twitter.com/mwayservices/status/1444013853298266118 It's now also been confirmed that the army is being br...

Re: Fuel situation in your area

Just seen that Boris is encouraging us to fill up as we normally would.

How can we fill up normally when all the local petrol stations are either closed, or rammed full of cars that haven't been able to get fuel for the past few days?

Re: Fuel situation in your area

Absolutely nothing to be found in my town (aside from drivers who ignore cones, and a very angry Esso worker). https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/478585487380971536/892021722449080330/IMG_20210927_114936566_HDR.jpg?width=1246&height=701 https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/478585487380...

Re: Fuel situation in your area

I think this tweet from a radio presenter who lives one town over from me summarises how things are going around here.

Re: Fuel situation in your area

Things have changed in my area now. I'm not sure how things are for the Sainsbury's, but the Esso has now run out of fuel and closed.

Fuel situation in your area

Given the recent panic-buying of fuel, I'm interested in hearing how things our in your area. We know what things are looking like for Phil McCann in Stockport, but how are things looking for you. There are two stations in my town. The Esso station looked to be fine at a glance, whilst the Sainsbury...

Unusual news jingles/voiceovers

I was recently having a rummage around on Aircheck Downloads when I stumbled across this news jingle from when Radio City 2 swapped frequencies with Radio City Talk. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/BBI45/City%202%20%20City%20Talk%20Swap.mp3 This got me thinking about the voiceovers that are used to int...

Re: Global buys Quidem

Can't say I'm surprised by this news. Like Ghost, I expect the stations will be merged into the Midlands station by the end of the year with the only "local" content being news and travel updates. EDIT: I have updated my personal Capital timeline in preparation for the inevitable handing o...

Re: Radio Networks: How did we get here?

I have finally completed the table for BBC Radio (Post-1967) . I declaring this set of tables done, and as a result, you can now download the Excel spreadsheet to explore. Whilst I'm calling time on this set, I'm looking for other networks which I could put into tables like these. My weird autistic ...

Re: Why did Radio 5 Live never move to FM?

I do wonder if/when the radio digital switchover happens, if we'll see the current AM stations (Absolute Radio, BBC Radio 5 Live, Gold, Smooth, TalkSport, etc.) move to FM.
