    Yes, listening to it now. It’s a bit dry.

    Interesting that the article highlights the issue as "the lack of control local broadcasters have over interfaces designed by international tech companies that struggle to adapt to local needs." when actually the overriding issue is surely the decision to give your new radio station the same name as a radio station that already exists?

    The story in itself is a rich seam of mirth to me, and you'd think to the Guardian too, so the fact of them not even mentioning this, I guess, is another example of Murdoch fear.

    Not a Murdoch fan so I'm sticking with R4 too.

    My husband said he tried to listen but they were interviewing Johnson at that moment so he had to switch it off. I do like John Pienaar, so might well tune in to listen to him.

    You can't have too much ignorance.

    They have just done an interview with the Malawi Times Radio, I thought it was a nice idea to do so. Sometimes when ****-ups happen you have to have a laugh about it.

    I'm quite enjoying this new channel.

    For example I always liked Michael Portillo on 'This Week' and he has a slot at 7pm tonight - he is interviewing Gove including why Cummings is so important to the PM. This afternoon there was a Desert Island Crisp show - instead of music - what fave foods would you want to eat and Kathy Newman from Channel 4 is on at 4, she is smart.

    So a radio version of the Sun newspaper?
