To think Radio 1 should not ban Robbie from their playlist!?

I think it's totally wrong for Radio 1 to ban Robbie from their playlist as apparently he is 'not relevant' to Radio 1 listeners.

I am sorry but I disagree, he is UK number one and therefore there is a chance that people in their demographic have bought it.

IMO, is something is in the top 40 then surely it is 'relevant'?!

Sorry, I know it's stupid but it's really annoyed me that they've done this, angry article here if anyone is interested grin

I am not a RW fan but as he is number one in the hit parade won't they have to play it now? grin

They should ban him simply because it is the worst song I have ever heard.

Since Chris Moyles left I have tuned out. Cant stand Grimmy in the morning, he does my head in.

My morning routine is to watch Cash Cab on Quest while getting ready then CDs on in the car on school run. I miss Chris Moyles. sad

I have tried local radio (awful) Chris Evans (boring) and even classic FM.

I am very fed up with the Adele 'Skyfole' song that is on every radio station all the time though.

Didn't know they had banned him but I think it's great. He's not a musician, just guru tastes whatever is written for him. He's living off his take that fame.

Radio 1 seem to be playing so, so much better stuff now - more genuine music by aspiring musicians who have not tried to get in the quick way via some shite reality show.

Hope this attitude lasts.

I can't stand that 'Candy' song and I think they should ban it on the grounds that it is grim, but banning his entire oeuvre is a bit much. Mind you, I'm more the Radio 2/Radio 4 demographic anyway, I don't actually recognise most of what's on Radio 1 as music. <fogey>

Since chris moyles left I have been tuning into either radio 2 or 6music (which is brilliant )

Robbie Williams is as irrelevant now as Status Quo were in the mid-90s when Radio 1 "banned" them.
