Also on the subject of radio I was listening to BBC 6Music on Sunday. In the newsbreak the whole bulletin was done with a dance beat in the background.

So this meant that I listened to the report of the deaths of more than 4000 people in the Indonesian earthquake to the strains of pounding beats. This is also the kind of thing that Scotsport do when they show football highlights to the sound of dance music. Cos of course that makes it more interesting eh? Pounding dance beats and football the perfect combination.

The idea that sport or news is funkier or more interesting or I don’t know what with music played over it is insane. I have no idea who thought this odd little trend up, but it’s about time they were told that they’re an idiot and a call centre job awaits them.
