  1. What does that even mean?
  2. This is a creepy thread.
  3. They're not just interested in the raw figures though, they're interested in how many of a certain demographic are listening. If they're doing well in that respect, they're doing well.

    It's helpful if you post a link to your source. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-20069706
  6. Very unlikely to be owned by the BBC, it's probably on a lease, so it'll just be returned to them.

  12. Sorry to burst all of your bubbles - but the Guardian article I read yesterday about this issue made no mention of him 'remaining on breakfast' until then. It simply tied him to the corporation. If they wanted, they could easily push him off to weekends, even Radio 2 or somewhere.
  13. Same. They sound pretty settled to be honest. What's with the rolling eyes, Viv - can't you stand someone having a differing opinion?
