Thank you!    Maybe he will appear on BBC1 Breakfast too - two for the price of one!   ;)  They are both from the same building I presume?     :think

No. BBC Radio is from London whereas BBC Breakfast is broadcast from Media City in Manchester.

Of course!   :smack    Thanks for correcting me, Geordie_60!   I should have remembered that it moved to Salford!   ::)

Yes, it comes out as a constant bitrate .m4a (iTunes) stream, around 130 kbps I think, so somewhere around CD quality.

And that is the stream as broadcast. Most stream rippers dont rip the source, they just copy what is streamed, and convert that to .mp3 / .m4a / whatever.

Heard this this morning, great news. The guests normally come into the show at around 8:30am. Hopefully he'll have his guitar(s) with him..

Amazing. Chris Evans was the darling of Britpop 20 years ago and wouldn't have played MK in a million years.

I'm sure the Beryl single will be played during the interview and then maybe a couple or so 'unplugged' tunes in the studio - of course I may be wrong?!

He talked a couple of weeks ago about DS, and that he listened to them on cassette the other day and it still sounded fantastic.  He also talked about MKs amazing house on the south coast being close to another member of DS, his moral to the story was learn to play guitar kids.
