So... BBC1 is basically the playlist on George Ergatoudis' iPod? Listeners are forced to acquiesce to his taste in music?

Really?

Geez, I thought Clear Channel was bad. You Brits have it a lot worse.

Not defending any slighted musicians, but when the station is run by somebody like that, you really need to do something about it.

Noting this part:

Muse also came into consideration with Harding stating: "Muse are approaching a crossroads - their last single was the first one not playlisted by Radio 1 in a decade. The door remains open to them but we'll have to think carefully about their next album."

Crossroads? More like they chose to take a side road leading to the "Land of Utter shiat" instead of staying on the road they were on.

Actually, I'm okay with someone with taste (and if he's dissing Noel, he obviously does have taste) being the arbiter of what makes the cut. Infinitely better than the US system where independent promoters make the days of payola seem quiant.

Oasis became big in the mid-90's, twenty years back. Radio two tends to play popular music from ten to twenty years back. Chris Evans breakfast show was on in the 90s on radio 1, he premiered Oasis on his TV show a bit before that, now Evans hosts Radio 2's breakfast show. This is par for the course.

It;s about audience, not a bout tastes


The remit of Radio 1 is to entertain and engage a broad range of young listeners with a distinctive mix of contemporary music and speech. It should reflect the lives and interests of 15-29 year olds but also embrace others who share similar tastes.
It should offer a range of new music, support emerging artists - especially those from the UK - and provide a platform for live music. News, documentaries and advice campaigns should cover areas of relevance to young adults.


Obviously they won't play classic rock like Muse, Oasis or Robin Williams

BBC 1, BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 4 are TV stations.
BBC Radio 1 through 4 are radio stations, as are 5 Live and 6 Music.

BBC Radio 1 and BBC 3 are for slow-witted children.
BBC Radio 4 and BBC 4 are for people who occasionally like  to engage their brains, if only for a short while.
5 Live is sports & talk, 6 Music is for hipsters.

The rest are all light entertainment.

That is all.
