Anyone recommend a good Radio Show

I have been listening to Scott Mills on demand for years and just have it on during the day when working. I like the chit chat and like the music selections. Most of the presenters I've liked at R1 in the past years have all left and Scott was the last I cared for. I want to keep up with current popular music and am pretty sure I won't be happy with the R2 music list

Any recommendations of either Radio 1 people or other on demand shows that will be something similar to Scott.

Cheers.

I've always found Greg James pretty decent.

This Chris Stark is joining Roman Kemp on Capital, can't stand Kemp personally though.

I like Stark also, but if he's joining an idiot until he finally gets his own show then that is a shame.

I have ordered a new electric oven and gas hob for my tenant but the installers said it needs its own circuit/red switch before it can be installed. Is getting one of those or getting one installed a big and expensive job?

Depends where the oven is with reference to the board.

It needs to be fitted as follows (directly, not joining another ring on the way) ...

Oven -> Isolation Switch -> Board

If your board is miles away from your cooker, they'll need to either run the cabling under floorboards or drill through the walls somehow - increasing the cost of the job

I got mine done a while back - think it was about £120ish. It was a bit of a bastard as they had to go through a wall and under some floorboards.

Basically the oven needs to be on its own circuit. That means running a wire from your electrical panel board to the oven. This is easy to do when the house is being built as you can run all the wires in the walls. Now that the house is built, that is a lot more difficult. I would recommend a qualified electrician as getting this right is important.

Cost is hard to know given the variables as previously stated. How long will the wire need to be and how much of a pain in the arse is it to run the wire from A to B. Some local sparky should be able to do it easily.

Be much cheaper to do if you run the wire yourself and pay trade price just to hook it up.

Potentially, yes, but for me the problem with IT Crowd and Bottom is that they're too goofy (for lack of a better word), too over the top. For some reason, I have no issues with Only The Fools and Horses or The Office (UK+US), Friends, Coupling etc even though they're not that realistic either. Lately, the style of Horace and Pete and After Life has worked for me for some reason. I'm gonna try It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Always Sunny becomes a drastically different show between season 2-3 and for the better. It was decent before, but still finding it's stride, so I'd advise sticking with it through the first two seasons even if you're a bit unsure.

The golden age of Always Sunny is Seasons 3 - 9, which is a tremendous run where almost every episode is excellent. After that, they're still generally decent with the odd great episode but a lot of flat ones. Season 14 was better than anything for a while.

As a massive IASIP fan, I second this.

First season has it's moment, but really takes finds its stride when Danny Devito gets involved. Great show!
