So it's another set of figures low for the Breakfast Show. I know Mr Cooper says all is well in the world because of YouTube and Social Media. Maybe so but how much longer does it have to dip before he pushes the panic button? I reckon he has something in mind for the station next year? How do we find figures for the likes of Mills and Greg? What's everyone think?

They probably purposely make it slightly outdated so that people outside of the studio can be alerted to the fact that something's wrong.
Also, can we take a moment to appreciate how Vernon Kay used to do a weekly maths question as an actual radio feature?
Interesting that the emergency "tape" is at least two years old. The fact that we've (probably) never heard it before just goes to show how rare technical breakdowns are these days (of course this was human error rather than a fault).
Here's a fun emergency tape incident from back in '09 with some '06 imaging shoved in for old time's sake.
I wondered that too, but when it came on again before the start of Phil's show, it seemed to start from the beginning with Clean Bandit and an ident. To be honest, I'm just surprised (and slighyly disappointed) that it's not Hey Ya by OutKast anymore.
It was also weird how as soon as the studio was taken off air a trail played, before the silence - I'm trying to work out how that happened. Anyone who knows more about radio engineering than me got any suggestions?
