Sorry to bang on about it again. Radio 2 and their pet bands.
Wifey and I had a long drive and she insisted on Radio 2 (we have FM only so no Radio X on digital unfortunately.) I placed a sporting bet with her. Within the six hour journey, that Elton John, Queen, Roxy Music and George Michael would be played.
I didn't have to wait two hours, never mind six !
The next day - during my half hour's drive time - Roxy Music was somehow shoehorned into the Love Song slot, introduced by Gary Kemp (another R2 favourite along with Spandau Ballet.)
Can someone explain why this is so ? There have been tens of thousands of successful bands. Why do we keep hearing the same ones over and over ?
