I find it very odd that nobody seems to recognise when Amfo's slot is, and why that might influence how 'lively' the show it. It's on during office hours, it's on when people want minimal conversation, maximum background music. As such, there are only a small amount of features and most of them are music-based. That is the brief of her show, that is, presumably, why you find her 'dull' - she is actually fulfilling the brief given to her, I imagine. Cotton's show was just the same. So was Whiley's.
