Comments so far

Acid Star - Aspen, CO
I liked that she didn't play too much Hole, since everybody keeps braging about her mega-ego! I love her! She's a great personality, unapologetical and extremely smart! I'm very happy with her recovery and hope she keeps clean and prove everyone how talented she is!

Simon West Sussex
pretty mixed up choices a bit like courtney herself

Emx, birmingham
Nice to have you back Courtney x

Jo, Holland.
I think it's quite dissapointing that there wasn't more Hole in there. I am a huge Hole fan and I was hoping for some rare songs in there. But too bad...

Bobby Fernandes and Ilford Essex
Top selection.


Dave, Toronto
She's got good taste.

Rachel, Essex
Courtney Love is awesome, she's my idol :) Good to see she picked some Nirvana tracks, and Drown Soda is an amazing song. x

Paul Murphy, Hackney
That version of 'And the Fighting Takes Over' by The Teardrop Explodes is one of the best BBC session tracks ever, along witrh the Dexys one from about the same time with songs from Too-Rye-Ay with horns, like 'Until I Believe In My Soul'

Charlotte, Rotherham
some great songs on there court - how about some more Hole/Solo stuff though? mwr loves you xx

james, portsmouth
Thank you courtney for airing one of rem's greatest albums!

Rachel Stocks, Bradford
Some awesome selections! Unforgettable classics like Joy Division mixed with new electro beats of Robots in Disguise! Couldn't have been better!

anthony manchester
i want the book pls? big courtney fan, oh and signed

Andy, Preston
You not playing any Foo Fighters then Courtney??

Captain Future Past (Hull)
How come she isn't playing any Smashing Pumpkins? Or at least some solo Corgan?

simon, lewes
boring.....and the Gallagher brother have yet to choose their staple diet of Jet, OCS, Kasabian, Stone Roses, Beatles.. we don't really care.

Ms Misic-Hughes, London
Oh, the disappointment!!! - being a new arrival to the 6 Music Selector format territory, I had fantasised about the BBC bravely and brilliantly giving a whole day to the charismatic Ms Love to make us laugh, learn, and swoon...oh, the naivete!!! One can't always get what one wants, but it is exciting waiting for her to pop up every now and then, and I'm looking forward to her and Lamacq this afternoon, and the Liverpool doco. Just wished she'd chosen a different Big Star track!!!

Pete Browne Tyrone
