Radio 2 should concentrate on hiring actual radio jocks, instead of TV personalities at £10K+ a show. They're supposed to be cutting back. Getting rid of the TV people from R2 and replacing them with people who are actually good at radio (and cost a fraction of the price) would be a start.

Annoyingly, Radio 2 has recently cut its live overnight programming because of budget cuts yet continues to hire celebrities to front shows. Existing celebrities such as Elaine Paige, Liza Tarbuck, Graham Norton, Clare Balding and Michael Ball probably don't come cheap.

What's the target age range for Radio 2 ?

With Ross slipping in behind Norton (ooooer) on their line-up, one has to question their target IQ range.

The best facial is a daily facial.

35+, though listening to Chris Evans anyone would think 12+

If they cut the 'celebs' that wouldn't be a problem. It's a total embarrassment that a national station isn't live 24/7. I say get rid of the 'names', get some actual radio people in their place and save a load of money :shrug:

Should be 70+ :)

I'd still choose Radio 1 ( except daytime )

Reason enough not to bother tuning in. Thanks for the heads up Scott :thumb:
