    I bought Pet Sounds when it was first released having been a Beach Boys fan since their 'surfin' days. It was in mono though - don't know why, even a later cd release was also mono. I always thought the album was perfect for stereo given Brian Wilson's production values and finally a stereo version was issued on vinyl a few years ago, and it didn't disappoint. I think the track Pet Sounds on side 2 is one of the finest stereo productions I've ever heard.

    BBCs Radio 6 Music plays quality non-chart contemporary music as well as older stuff, so Radio's not an entire barren desert of chart pop. I listen at the weekends to Giles Peterson and Craig Charles, and Guy Garvey on Sundays. Great way to hear new stuff, and be reminded of great music that I'd forgotten about.

    Indeed. But I do feel R6M has started to play less of the good stuff recently. Well, for the past year anyway.

    A lot of the stuff they play is rap, don't mind rap but only when it's done well and it's not about killing n shit... The stuff they're playing are like the scrapings of Bandcamp. A mix of adolescent wannabes copying everything else.

    I suppose that's true, but 6 Music is still head and shoulders above everything else on the radio. Shame I'm the only person I know who can tolerate 6 Music, or I'd have it on all the time while working

    There's enough djs whose tastes coincide with mine - so I'm happy. And it's on demand on BBC Sounds. Great service.

    I wish Radio Paradise was broadcasted in the UK over FM/Dab in addition to it's wonderful internet delivery. I imagine it would eat up a lot of data using mobile internet in the car etc.

    DAB can only accommodate a finite number of stations, so something would have to go first, to make room for Radio Paradise. My vote would be for Heart to be given the boot, but that's never going to happen. The masses need their fix of depressing adverts and mindnumbing chart cack.

    Radio Paradise is on the BluOS app. It has 4 MQA channels which sound very good Very brief station announcement every half hour or so.
