I’ve waited a long time for a radio station dedicated to the Sixties. Now one has finally arrived, it’s been put in the hands of complete chumps.
Absolute Radio 60s has decided to impose a ban on playing any Cliff Richard records on the station on the grounds that ‘his songs don’t fit the cool sound of the swinging Sixties we are trying to recreate.’
They reckon Sir Cliff is not ‘one of the timeless acts which remain relevant today.’
But surely the idea of a station dedicated to this decade is that it fairly reflects all the sounds which made it so memorable.
Otherwise it has no business including the word ‘absolute’ in its name – the dictionary definition for which is ‘not limited by restrictions or exceptions.’
