Broader Range stns & others that don’t fit our neat categories!

Ok, so we’ve got 4 stations that have basically made it plain that they are throwing the usual radio rule book out of the window, and are setting out to play a whole load of different stuff and/or up the variety stakes, plus a couple of others, Jazz FM (Bauer) and BBC Asian Network which plough their own furrow and don’t really have any direct UK competitors with such a wide national coverage.

Of the “big variety” genre stations, even the one with the smallest playlist, Jack FM, is actually playing about double the number of songs that most mainstream would contemplate (and Sam FM is basically another Jack FM that Bauer have ended up with and not yet decided what to do with !), but even they are completely dwarfed by BBC 6 Music with a shelf groaning 6000 distinct songs played in 30 days! The non corporately owned Cheesy FM, it turns out, is not just home to some guilty pleasures but in fact has a pretty wide spectrum of songs it is prepared to wheel out!
