on Radio Seagull

every Friday & Saturday at midday

and again at midnight UK time

Chris B:
"Toward The Unknown Region returned to Radio Seagull on 1st August 2015 (following a six year break)..


from a media entrepreneur:
"Always beats me why you don't have some late night gig on the Beeb somewhere - the quality of your music choice is excellent but then I guess that opens a whole discussion topic of why radio in the UK is so dire at present ...."

from a listener: "What the hell are you smoking, or sniffing ? I have spent an hour now listening to your show this Saturday night and i have heard about four tracks worth listening to. IF John Peel has affected you please get some treatment, the man was an eccentric weirdo who loved playing crap which is why he suited different youth cultures and the BBC kept him on. Listening to your show i feel like i am on drugs with weird folky Scottish tunes, then ethereal music followed by god knows what. I know no offshore radio friends that ever gave Peel a listen, and in the 70's Caroline never played anything of his taste so maybe you should be working for some some old radio one appreciation society where Peely music is appreciated."
"I love a mixture of Rock, dance, trance & progressive music,  that's why I enjoy what you do"
 "Thanks again (for the Nth time) for your most excellent shows. Sorry if it sounds exaggerated but it is simply the truth - but then I'm sure others will say so too!

Radio Seagull - and your show being my absolute favourite, to hear your selection of new music and the occasional Kraftwerk, Mr. Coconut or Klaatu track..."

from a Programme Director:

"please take a bit of advice and think again about that magic word 'compromise'. (otherwise).. It's a bit like John Peel without a producer!"
Chris B comments: I think the above writer misses the point that Peel's longtime producer, John Walters, actually encouraged Peel rather than tamed him. Walters actively shielded Peel from the BBC execs. As the Peel inspired Dandelion Radio webcast announces when you login... Independent, Original, Uncompromising..."
"listening to your wonderful show.. Just LOVE Emerge by Fischerspooner - had to do a Shazam text check to find that out"
about the show from Seborga, Liguria, with co presenter Mark Dezzani:
"Sorry Chris....
                   all I can say is..............
                                                 BLOODY Brilliant ,
                                                                  you've got me hooked to your shows,
regards to Mark D 'cause he sounds Kool too.. "

from a DJ at another radio station (previously on RNI, ex Radio Caroline etc.), this carefully considered and reasoned comment, about the above Seborgan Seagull playlist:

What a load of obscure crap if you don't mind me saying so...
(thank you roger)

"I try to listen every time you are on Radio Seagull.
Love the show.
Why aren't you on Radio Seagull every night?"
A general comment about Radio Seagull:
"I own a bar in Thailand. Most nights at 2am (Just before the bar closes) I put radio Seagull on the PA system. We have a large international customer base, from America, England, Denmark, Holland, Sweden, Germany etc etc. It's interesting to see their reaction when they realise what they are listening to!"
"I'm now hearing your excellent show.
                                       You played America by Bert Sommer ??
Loved it, love the Simon & Garfunkel original, Love the YES / Jon Anderson version too..."
...whilst live on air at Radio Caroline Maidstone studio:

"Hi Chris,

This is simple, either follow our playlist or put the automation on and go home.

Your choice.

from a radio professional:

"Truly, you "get it" in terms of doing creative radio. Your playlists are the type of radio I love to see being done. Your ideas on how a show should be presented are quite progressive. I can think of no better compliment than to be told to "return to playlist" as I was in the exact same boat here on an American FM station. I was the operations manager and also handled music and programming of the station until they realized I was actually going to LOOK for music to play instead of sitting back and passively letting the computer play things over and over and over.. I had a vision to grow the station which was not shared..."

from another presenter:
" were yet another bloody presenter who refused to work to dull and out-dated playlists. And quite right too !!!

Funny how people who make up playlists always seem to know a hell of a lot less about music than the guys who are actually doing the programmes. Weird isn't it ?

Freeform rules !"
