four years pass...

Does anyone like BBC Radio 6Music?

I used to think it was a lot of moody and / or stodgy alternative rock and I rather disdained it.

Then I started listening to it more. I found that it did include a lot of moody or stodgy alternative rock, but also a lot of other music. Today I have heard a lot of hip hop on it. Usually I hear a lot of reggae. I don't like any of these things, but nonetheless it does sometimes play music I like.

To a degree, I have also come to appreciate listening to the presenters.

Keaveney: unbearable
Laverne: likeable but a blatherer and somewhat ridiculous
Radcliffe & Maconie: I used to think this idea was preposterous but I have come round to it for its bathos and familiarity
Lamacq - preposterous
Riley - I don't listen, would not take him seriously - but he does support new acts; maybe some of them are OK?
Coe - seems not very different from a Freaky Trigger programme, eg if Tim Hopkins was on for 3 hours per night. Too much reggae for me but on balance I like the programme.

Weekends: mostly bad in various ways, from what I have heard.

This makes it seem like I think 6music is bad. Yet I still listen to it.

Does anyone else?

I suppose I am thinking: I quite often enjoy it for its preposterousness. Thus this thread with its Sultans of Ping reference above - not that I hear them specifically, but you can genuinely still hear Lamacq play something like The Wonder Stuff - which is like a time capsule effect which I perversely enjoy.

the pinefox, Friday, 12 January 2018 14:05 (one week ago) Permalink

There is a lot of variation between presenters.

This is what I wrote about a year ago, have listened much less + found Tom Ravenscroft is probably better than all of these since then:

I have listened to too much BBC 6 Music recently. Here is my review of BBC 6 Music.

Steve Lamacq / Liz Kershaw - Cannot stand either of these people churning out the same boring old indie bollocks, will not listen at all. No idea what Liz Kershaw in particular is doing on this station.

Shaun Keaveny - A bit better than the above, but very much fitting the description of classic canon + new indie music, always end up tuning out

Mary Anne Hobbes - initially disappointing transition from radio 1, coming round to her now but still find her voice annoying.

Guy Garvey - Like a better version of Steve Lamacq, but ultimately not *that* much better. Everything he enthuses about ends up being a bit meh

Lauren Laverne / Radcliffe & Maconie - Fairly reliable, but still mainly canon + new indie. Basically I like them, so it stays on, It's daytime radio and probably would be silly to expect anything else.

Huey / Craig Charles - Always a let-down, same old selection of funk & soul records everyone has heard a thousand times before

Marc Riley - Always a pleasant surprise, lots of good new music, even if it is entirely indie or indie-ish. Clearly invests a lot of time & passion and it pays off.

Jarvis Cocker / Various others filling in - bit of a risk, but can be be the best things on.

Tom Robinson - Let's assemble music on a theme! But let's pick the most pedestrian choices possible! Why do I always end up listening to this when I hate it so much?

Cerys - I was never a fan of Catatonia, so surprised to say this is maybe the best thing on here. Genuinely left-field, genuinely wonderful discoveries throughout.

Freakzone - Should be my favourite, actually it's usually good but guess I'm a bit burnt out on it right now, he needs to explore in less expected directions

Live Hour - Anyone want to hear Oasis at Knebworth? Yes, apparently so, fucking hell.

Gideon Coe - This looks ok, but never heard it as it starts at 10pm on weeknights, I am not listening to the radio at 10pm

In summary - I want to love this station, but there is way too much rock canon (which I've heard too much already) and "new music" which is just "new indie" - it's like "you can have eclectic taste with old stuff, but now you are middle-aged and the only new stuff you are allowed to like is generic indie-rock." A lot of it seems to be aspiring to be John Peel, forgetting that the best thing about John Peel was that he would throw in some speedcore and thrash metal and never apologise for it, not try to tailor music for an imagined audience of middle-aged former indie kids.

I only ever listen to this when I'm driving the pool cars at work: Journey in the morning, Laverne - good stuff, knowledgeable and a wide range of music. Evenings on the way home, Lamacq: May as well be listening to an Evening Session c1996 - these drives last forever

Partly agree with the summary above, but also differ.

>>> Shaun Keaveny - A bit better than the above, but very much fitting the description of classic canon + new indie music, always end up tuning out -- BUT YOU DON'T MENTION THAT HE IS A DREADFUL OBNOXIOUS 'PERSONALITY'

>>> Mary Anne Hobbes - initially disappointing transition from radio 1, coming round to her now but still find her voice annoying. -- YES, THE VOICE MAKES IT BASICALLY UNBEARABLE

>>> Lauren Laverne / Radcliffe & Maconie - Fairly reliable, but still mainly canon + new indie. Basically I like them, so it stays on, It's daytime radio and probably would be silly to expect anything else. -- BASICALLY AGREE

>>> Freakzone - Should be my favourite, actually it's usually good but guess I'm a bit burnt out on it right now, he needs to explore in less expected directions -- HAVE NOT REALLY LISTENED - IS PROBABLY TOO PROG / EXPERIMENTAL FOR ME

>>> Gideon Coe - This looks ok, but never heard it as it starts at 10pm on weeknights, I am not listening to the radio at 10pm -- STARTS AT 9PM IN FACT! YOU MIGHT LIKE IT, IS QUITE 'ECLECTIC'

>>> way too much rock canon (which I've heard too much already) and "new music" which is just "new indie" - it's like "you can have eclectic taste with old stuff, but now you are middle-aged and the only new stuff you are allowed to like is generic indie-rock." -- COULD BE SOMETHING IN THIS STATEMENT. BUT I THINK A LOT OF THE NEW MUSIC THEY PLAY IS NOT INDIE ROCK BUT EG: KINDS OF ELECTRONIC POP, HIP HOP. I DON'T THINK THE STATION IS QUITE AS INDIE-ROCK AS YOU SUGGEST.

I agree with Dog Latin that Laverne is relatively eclectic. In fact if anything she is too eclectic for me, she plays loads of genres I don't really like.

The LAMMO thing seems to be to be 'beyond a joke' -- like a kind of comedy sketch at this point, rather than something serious to get annoyed by?

the pinefox, Friday, 12 January 2018 14:46 (one week ago) Permalink

Gideon Coe I am fairly sure is the one that is genuinely closer to Peel -- though, as is rightly said, they all tend to appeal spuriously to an idea of Peel.

I suppose the difference is that Peel was responding to a YOUTH AUDIENCE, of as it were 16-year-old Smiths and Wedding Present fans -- those were the people making the Festive Fifty what it was, etc -- whereas Coe's audience must be quite difficult and is never in conflict with him; it's all very harmonious.

I would repeat that Coe seems to me very close to a Tim Hopkins radio programme (Tim Hopkins was a veteran poster on ILX in 2000s), though a bit more indiepop-friendly. In fact he is almost the only indiepop-friendly DJ on radio -- so is genuinely filling a unique niche.

the pinefox, Friday, 12 January 2018 14:49 (one week ago) Permalink

I still keep accidentally tuning in to Tom Robinson's 'Now Playing @6music' on Sundays, it is absolutely the most infuriating thing on the radio.

Lammo just needs to be booted across to radio 2, they can deal with him there.

and what you say, CAAL, about their harping on about Peel is OTM: it's like John Peel but without the dub reggae, happy hardcore, techno etc. i.e. most of the stuff that made Peel interesting in the first place

Xp It's a combination of his incompetence, the listeners lame suggestions and the producer who uses better songs as a bed, which still tricks me every time.

it's also a shame that some of the specialist shows they used to have at evenings & weekends have been done away with, e.g. an Andy Weatherall show on a Saturday night, or Bruce Dickinson doing a metal show. I think at the moment you have Tom Robinson on a Friday evening, party time!

Disagree with the Pinefox in that the weekend shows are the highlight for me, especially Cerys Matthews who is in a way the closest thing to an heir to John Peel in that she regularly surprises and confounds with what she plays. My taste in music syncs best with Mary Anne Hobbs, but I find her 'hello trees' persona a bit twee sometimes.

XP I have two small children and therefore no social life to speak of, basically I am their target audience

Gilles Peterson on a Saturday afternoon is a combination of excellent and frustrating, but is one of the better shows, I think. Cerys also good, but she tends to use that awestruck tone that is the 6Music voice (Mary Ann Hobbs, Guy Garvey et al) which is as distinctive as the Radio 4 comedy show voice.

this is true, but it's also a case of is this the best they can come up with? Rave nostalgia is problematic, I know, but at least play something fun!

Thomas NAGL (Neil S), Friday, 12 January 2018 15:23 (one week ago) Permalink

It's fair to recall that Peel was not only avant-garde but also suburban / comfortable / familiar -- as in a long-ago ILX thread debate about his Radio 4 programme, Radio Times column, etc. I remember some of his late broadcast work as being rather predictable -- always ready to host a big session with Camera Obscura, etc.

In that particular sense he is closer to eg Gideon Coe or other 6music than one might think.

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Friday, 12 January 2018 18:39 (one week ago) Permalink

There's a disconnect between what the daytime presenters talk about and what they play, which I find irritating. Like Thundercat winning their presenters' album of the year poll, but before that win I'd never heard any of them play anything off that album ever. And at the moment there's a really simpering indie track that's just a knock-off of Fleetwood Mac on heavy rotation, and they're all going nuts over Shame, who just sound like Hard-Fi, so there's as much annoying playlisting going on as at any other mainstream radio station (obviously). The over-earnest quiet enthusiasm is definitely a house style, too, and I find it a bit sick-in-my-mouth most of the time even if I quite like what;s being enthused about.

And that's the thing, there isn't anywhere else where I can turn the radio on and be confident I'll get a favourable ratio of stuff I like to hear. I doubt I'd have heard Ratio by Floating Points on any other daytime station last year, for instance. Yes, they pander to 90s kids now in their late 30s and 40s by playing The Bluetones or Shed Seven every so often, but there is at least an attempt to broaden horizons too.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 16 January 2018 07:33 (one week ago) Permalink

I feel like they should be bold and stop having a playlist entirely. The existence of one seems to go against the whole supposed ethos of the station.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 16 January 2018 09:23 (one week ago) Permalink

I don't like that 'house style', but am unsure if it's really that common. Riley, Radcliffe, Huey Morgan (!), Iggy Pop (?!) don't do it?

I think for me it comes down more to M A Hobbs having a peculiar voice.

I tend to agree about 'playlist' stuff -- why do they need one at all? The repetitiveness of it is tiresome and it usually feels like they're promoting mediocrity; which they're not when they veer off it.

(G Coe doesn't play to any playlist.)

Last night Coe played 'coney island baby' - it sounded like a different version to me, the lead guitar was so elaborate - but perhaps it was just the same old version and it had never shone through so much. It sounded epic. I suppose it was a good use of radio, even though in theory I could have played the song myself.

TBF only LAMMO really plays old Bluetones + Shed Seven records! I think others would be too embarrassed to do that.

the pinefox, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 09:51 (one week ago) Permalink

Guardian last week said SHAME are the greatest new guitar band. Have not heard but from the report, must be abysmal.

the pinefox, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 09:52 (one week ago) Permalink

The playlist seems completely arbitrary, all these songs by minor indie bands with no wider impact at all being hammered to death while so much similar stuff gets ignored. I probably enjoyed more indie last year than I did in the last decade but I don't remember hearing Sacred Paws or Hannah Peel or the Weather Station on there at all.

I never put any radio station on at home but we have 6music on in the office and while there's a 50:50 mix of decent stuff and utter shit, the station as a whole is just insufferably smug and self-congratulatory. This sense of preserving the flame of "underground" and "new music" as defined by tastemakers in their 40s and 50s. At one point there was an ad with one of the Marks going "it's great that 6music still plays underground music because no-one else does", which was admirable for its sheer brass neck if nothing else.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 09:52 (one week ago) Permalink

xps I've not really listened to 6music in years so I didn't realise that the Mary Ann-Hobbs awestruck voice had become a house style, I always thought of the 6music house style as being the John Peel-esque wry mildly blokey northerner? I guess you can synthesise the two e.g. Professor Brian Cox

soref, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 09:52 (one week ago) Permalink

There was a time a couple of years ago when I used to turn on 6Music on a regular basis and I heard some bloody awful song by The Coral every time. It put me off listening to the station entirely. I find it hard to believe that presence on a playlist is not down to payola.

the word dog doesn't bark (anagram), Tuesday, 16 January 2018 10:30 (one week ago) Permalink

payola feels...unlikely?...on the BBC nowadays. whereas having some people with awful taste picking songs they think other people with awful taste will enthuse about seems more likely

It's also the increasing desperation of people who want British guitar music to come back as that prospect appears more remote than ever.

For the sake of convenience I'm overlooking the sort of rock music that gets played on Radio 1 than these guys wouldn't touch with a bargepole.

6Music is basically about easing the slide into dementia - nice friendly nursey voices, music that takes you back to the happy days of your youth, stick to the familiar, don't confuse your patients with all this new modern stuff, keep away especially from new black music unless you want that one resident to go off on some awful racist monologue, you can play the old unthreatening stuff though, a bit of funny party music before we brew up some horlicks

They do seem to substitute a "Radio 1 Session" version for the "familiar/single" version whenever possible. I reckon its because they save on paying for "NeedleTime"...
