Re: Radio Cosford 87.9

I was about a mile from the airport with clear line of sight and it was still weak! Some long periods of dead air and out of sync with what was going on. Wonder if many actually listen?

Re: Radio Cosford 87.9

Really didn't get out this year, was just barely putting the RDS up about two miles from the airport earlier.

Re: Bandscan

Based on driving about this weekend.

92.4 does better than 87.9 in Worcester, but 87.9 has the edge in Telford. Nothing to choose between them at home in Bridgnorth.

Re: R.I.P. Steve Wright

Yes a real shame to lose such a radio icon. He truely was a legend. The woman in charge of BBC R2 scheduling has a lot to answer for/should be throughly ashamed of herself/should be reasigned to something more her level, like managing stationary. As an aside, attached is one of the jingles you ment...

Re: Bandscan

Birmingham Airport

92 Hot
92.4 Dream
94.4 Sting
101.2 Genesis

Out of all of them Genesis has the best programming. It's on a dead carrier.

Back to Ken Bruce then!

Re: R.I.P. Steve Wright

If you've not heard this one before:

The 2006 Powerhouse 106.8/Brylcreme Idents were recorded in what became "Steve's Studio" in Western House, now Wogan House in April 2006. The kit was there and brand new, but R2 hadn't moved yet.

18 years ago and seems like last week. Bloody hell.

Re: R.I.P. Steve Wright

Properly gutted - listened on and off since Radio 1 went on FM in 1988. I think you might be surprised how many "pirate" type people were cool by weekend and listened to Wrighty in the week.

There won't be radio like that again..

Sounded good awful in 1992 and no better 32 years later.

4dB up on normal though so guessing they're running flat out for the final hours...
