"Play people more of their current favourite hits, coupled with a few of their favourite all-time classics; give them all the news and info they need to know, along with a healthy dose of the celebrity-factor; keep your competitions and promotions fresh, appealing and entertaining; selectively use other media and events channels that best complement your own and always maintain an interactive flavour. That's what good radio is fundamentally about." Head of Talent, Content & Programming, Neil Johnson
