I always wondered how this works... in commercial stations, the record company pays and the radio plays it as "record of the week" so it gets attention, but with the BBC I don't know if that works the same way...
You might get lucky, now and then

I heard it played every day this week while I was at work, my foot was tapping. Shame they didn't have the intro to play. It's a great track..
