radio daze

How important was the radio when you were growing up? Particularly aimed at the Birmingham crew! My childhood wouldn't be complete without BRMB & Les Ross - what memories can you share with the fans about the role of radio in your early years? What stations do you listen to now? (I listen to XFM, just to hear Nick's Dandy Warhols' track!).... S"

"Actually radio was very important when I was growing up, but there really was only one station to listen to: which was Radio One. My favorite show was John Peel at night. There were a few pirate stations, so occasionally listened to Radio Luxembourg, but still the Radio One chart dominated all else. Now, I don't listen to radio so much, but I do let XFM and KISS (UK), depending upon what mood I am in. NR"
