On The Radio : 280124




I don't know if video did kill the radio star, but if you tuned in to last Sunday's show you can be forgiven for wondering what on earth was going on.


To recap, each two hour show is now two one hour programmes linked together wtih adverts. The first half of the programme until 19:00 proceeded as planned. Then came the adverts. At this point the radio show took on a mind of its own and played 10 minutes of standard 60s pop with no links. Abruptly the show then started the second half of the programme, but had 58 minutes worth of music to cram into 45 minutes. It was a bit of a distraction, wondering what would happen at 19:58. It turned out to be a slab of symphonic disco, instead of the opening to In Bed With TC.


I'm unable to explain any of this, as was Darren the station owner. However, he has assured me that the source of the glitch has been identified and it won't happen again. The main impact is that you missed the chance to hear The Beloved with 'Sweet Harmony'.


The show will be re-run this Thursday on www.royalboroughradio.co.uk between 12:00 and 14:00 if you want to hear the unglitched version.
