A few interesting but unrelated news items that caught my eye today.

If your radio signal cuts out, it may be due to solar flares. this may also apply to TV and phone signals.

BBC Radio 4 are listening to us all with a view to making a new series documenting our every day conversations. Now this could be a really interesting idea, or it could be the radio equivalent of TV’s Big Brother.

Gary Crowley is to join Amazing Radio. I usually hear him on BBC London although does trun op on 6 Music from time to time. He was also on GLR back in the day (that’s one of his catchphrases by the way) bit he left to be amongst the first at Xfm.

Amazing Radio is a digital station which broadcasts music from new, up and coming artistes, as suggested n=by the audience in many cases.
