  • RAJAR Q2 2022

    A quick note to anyone looking to say that because of poor planning on my part, I’m currently hiking in the mountains and therefore not able to write about the latest RAJAR figures. Yes – I’ve missed one… I’ll publish something on Sunday or Monday. In the meantime, Matt will have something to read!

Edison Research, the company that has probably lead the field in US audio and podcast research in recent years, has published its first…

  • RAJAR During COVID-19

    RAJAR During COVID-19

    This afternoon RAJAR, the UK’s radio research body, published a press release explaining changes they were making to the survey during the pandemic. It’s worth reading in full. In essence, because their research partners have been unable to conduct face-to-face interviews due to lockdown and social distancing measures, published RAJAR numbers will be based on…

    Les Evenson – Virgin Radio

    TL;DR If you got this article via Google because you’ve been offered rock memorabilia supposedly signed by a former Virgin Radio employee, then if it’s the person I’ve written about here, it’s probably FAKE. In the last couple of months, I’ve had two separate emails to my blog asking me about: L EvensLes Evenson In…

I’m publishing this just before 11am on April 3rd, when Pete’s funeral will be taking place. Unfortunately, due to current circumstances only…

  • Times Radio?

    Times Radio?

    Update 28 January: This is now confirmed as happening, so I’ve added an addendum below. It’s interesting to read the reports suggesting that News Corp is about to launch what has been described as “a new radio station designed to threaten Radio 4” or “a rival to Radio 4” this spring. According to the Telegraph…
