If it's cool I'll play it

Your life is not complete without a digital radio.  If you haven't got one get one.  I love the look of this Roberts RDGO one in Pastel Cream.  The sound is clear without any of those crackles or fighting with the frequency.  BBC Radio 6 Music is the best radio channel around. Playing a mixture of old and new, weird and wonderful, it will broaden your music horizons and there is NO other way to start the day.  

As Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it must be important to have a great environment as you eat your coco pops.  Shaun Keaveny's Breakfast show is a great listen, he seems to play a lot of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Libertines and Manic Street Preachers.  This is a show not to be snubbed at.  George Lamb takes the reign for the transition morning past noon show.  Although a year ago he was fresh sounding and fun listening, he is a bit boring now.  I think presenting Big Brother spin offs has damaged him.

My favourite listen is on Sunday with The Huey Show.  Huey from the Fun Lovin Criminals steps in  with the motto "if it's cool, I'll play it" and with his laid back summer tunes you really feel transported to South America.  No British cynicism here, leave your economic worries behind.  From Nancy Sinatra to Otis Redding to Prince then AC/DC there are no rules from 2pm until 3.30pm so get rid of your hangover with this gem of a show, a large glass of pineapple juice and imagine you are on a beach in Rio de Janeiro.
