Bear in mind they have recently received detailed ratings from RAJAR so perhaps it was performing poorly....

It was probably needed though for the station to survive. It was costing them in the region of £1m a year on the old multiplex just for the transmission space. By moving to the new one they make a considerable saving as Bauer who run Planet Rock are partners in Sound Digital who run the new one. Hence the move of Absolute 80s too (same owners) Without the move, there would prob be no Planet

You just need to accept that a return to Backstreet Symphony or Laughing on Judgement Day is not going to happen. I didnt like the later Queen stuff, preferring the 70s stuff, but no point in moaning I want them to do a Queen II type album. It just wasn't going to happen. March of the Black Queen would not be commercial enough in the late 80s and not sell as well as A Kind of Magic - no mat

Different market though Jimmy. The younger generation dont want CDs or hard copies in any form. They want to shove it all on their phone and listen through tiny earphones (or worse still through the speaker whilst on public transport as seems to be the in thing round here) Side note - ever noticed that people playing music through phones out loud, or blasting out through car speakers never s

Another thing to bear in mind is the difference in file sizes for an album.. Decent Quality MP3 - Approx 200mb Standard FLAC (said to be as near CD quality as you can get) - Approx 400-500mb "HD" Flac - Over 1GB Your storage space will soon fill up with HD downloads for very little benefits to the standard hearing.

Apparently, if Ofcom's radio research is anything to go by. Prob why they charge more... Less market Apparently no-one but audiophiles give a toss they say I have to admit I've tried a normal flac and a flac 24bit HD of the same album (Hysteria) and I can't tell any difference... Maybe with high end equipment you can but not with a HD capable Walkman, and let's face it....Many of those w

Similar to DAB radio. Bitrates of 80k mp2 mono (and sometimes less) and research has revealed that the majority of listeners dont care about the quality/stereo and can't tell the difference" Union Jack radio here is something stupid like 24k aac stereo. I know aac is a better codec than mp2 but my god does it sound bad... But again they say the majority don't care Then again when m

Annoys me when the download is £1-2 more than the cd at Amazon (very regular these days) yet if you buy the cd you get the download free with it. Who would buy the download and pay the higher price. You may as well have the cd and resell it if you only want the download

Amazon always honour the lowest price in any preorder. If you order at eg £10 and it goes up, you still pay £10. If however at some point it drops to £7.99 then you only pay £7.99

Their first big mistake was setting up a national DAB station. With carriage on the Digital One network costing in the region of £1million per annum to broadcast to 90% of the country at 80k mp2 mono (That's carriage only - all other costs of running a radio station are to be added on top) , it was in my opinion stupid to even consider running it advert free. National DAB is dominated by Global

Yup - was in Blackburn. Philips and Dupont Optical (PDO) between '88 and '93. PDO put it down to "a silver coating had been used on its discs instead of the standard gold." It is believed that the silver on the discs reacted with the sulphur in the booklets. Discs pressed by the company have "made by PDO" or words to that effect in the clear part at the centre of the dis

Being as the general consensus is that people don't like the album, If anyone has the Tesco deluxe version they want to sell (for a reasonable price), please PM me as all my local branches have sold out of it.
