Have any of you ever listened to Late Junction on BBC Radio 3? @crimsontadpoles you should give it a go, I think you would really enjoy it. Friday nights at 11. I hope you check it out sometime or explore it online on the BBC website (It becomes available for streaming by the following morning, I feel) ,so that you can let me know if you enjoy it and we can discuss it.

@nessisonett Maybe if you request it he will shout it. Anyway, I quite liked Robot Wars but am more of a Red Dwarf fan, I really liked the series they did when they were all resurrected and Rimmer suddenly became irresistible to all women on board as a result of the 'luck' virus or some-such elixir.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I listened to some of last week's Late Junction, which was a space themed episode. They certainly captured that theme well. It was very surreal and alien like, very out of this world.

I wasn't so keen on the music there, but that might just be due to the space theme. I also had a quick glance at the episode before that one, and enjoyed it a lot more. So it's probably worth me giving the show another chance at some point.

@crimsontadpoles Yeah, I really enjoyed that episode too, I generally enjoy them. Yeah, definitely give it another chance, I think Verity Sharp's programs are more carefully curated than those of Jennifer Lucy Allan, if that helps. I think she has a broader taste in music, nothing against Jennifer, she's great too.

@crimsontadpoles Did you listen last Friday night? Or to the podcast? What did you think? ,if you listened.

@nessisonett Do you ever listen to any other shows on 6music besides Craig Charles? I quite like Iggy Confidential & Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone, do you ever listen to either of those?

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I haven’t really listened to much radio in lockdown. Honestly, I listen to it primarily playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 since I don’t drive irl and it gets me in the mood. I love James Acaster’s show though, I’m a big fan of his comedy and podcasts and he gets some good guests on to share their favourite kinds of music. Particularly enjoyed hearing about Death Grips on BBC Radio, felt a bit surreal.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett Iggy Pop has played Behemoth and Wasted Shirt on BBC radio, Stuart Maconie has played Oranssis Pazuzu (Finnish psych-black metal) on the same station.

Lately, I've been listening to the radio more often. I find it's easier to concentrate with work if I have it on quietly in the background. Radio 6 is my preferred station, though Radio 2 can be fun when Ken Bruce is doing Pop Master (even though I'm hopeless at that quiz).

@crimsontadpoles Who do you like on Radio 6? Sorry I know this response is rather out-of-date, only just checked up on this thread.

I have been listening to lots of Radio 4 recently since losing interest in music, and the World Service as well, obviously.
