I WORK SHIFTS AND I HAVE THE RADIO ON ALL DAY0
I travel to most of cov's away games and I have to say the local bbc radio stations stick 100% to their football team on a saturday afternoon. Not cov and warks sky blue sat is a joke bring back rob
its should be nuneaton boro hour insted of sky blue on a saturday other than that its a crackin station
PLEASE PLEAESE bring Rob Gurney back to C&W station. I used to tune into the station all the time to listen to the sky blues when he was there but now that clive eaken is on i hardly bother!
TRISH ADUDU ROX !!!!!!!!!! KEEP IT UP GIRL XXXXX
If the people at Coventry and Warwickshire are listening to their audience then they should bring back Rob Guerney to the station, he is Coventry through and through, we currently have to listen to a very sarcastic Clive Eakin, who from his tone of voice does not care as much for our downtrodden football club. The chemistry is there when pairing up the likes of Adam Dent and Geoff Foster with Rob,but it is so apparent that with Clive it is very lacking. So why not bring him back, he was excellent on Saturday!
It seems that this would be the greater move for both Rob and Clive as Clive's heart never seems in it and Rob's always does.
Thanks, Richard Carlson
good luck with the new slot...i think it all sounds ace! I will mis ed doolan here in Stratford but eh-ho, Miss Othen will be great!! I see Keith Middleton's up to his usual tricks on this forum asking why "keithy boy" has been ignored for the cov line up!he's a regular on other forums with different alias's to suit..always asking why "Keithy Boy" aint got a regular slot and thinking if managment read these forums then they'll drop everything and sign him up. I think the line up is fine just as it is. delighted to have motor mouth back where he belongs, but i will miss doolan! Leave middleton on the dole where he is, and don't be fooled by his forum nonsense!!
Why didn't you get Jim Lee back?
Your presenters are too old and boring you need some younger presenters with personality rather than what you have and are employing!
The Line up looks good. I would like to hear old favourites Alex Trelinski and Keith Ellery together again on the Late Show. Always compelling, Always variety and Always great Chemistry.
Where is Rob Gurney as an armchair sky blue fan I miss his passion Clive Eakin is rubbish send back where he came from. I won't be missing Molly Green I the new early presenter is an improvement. Great new line up good luck everyone.

What a complete waste of 3 million pounds!!!
The BBC spent a fortune on the original C&W radio and then it flopped, they closed it down and merged it with WM, why throw more money at it with these old farts fronting a "Radio Station" that nobody will listen to apart from maybe a few "Old Farts".
No commercial station would make the same mistakes twice or spend such ludicrous amount of money, then again most commercial radio nowadays is any better.
BBC local radio and TV so cheesy, that's why nobody listens, the selection of presenters just clarifies this.
Video didn't kill the radio star......radio killed the radio star.
i love haveing liz kershaw on station shes funny and WOW fact more ladys please
I have been a long term regular listener since the beginning of CWR.
Great stuff in general, but less of those loud and totally unneccesary soccer game extracts (instant switch off)
Please remember that your audience is mainly Middle English. The Scots, Welsh and Irish are extremely proud of their roots please allow us to be, after all we all speak ENGLISH.
One last thing: Announcer please remember to pronounce yout Ts ie. CiTy not Ci'y and SaTurday not Sa'urday.
Thank you for listening

I look forward to listening.Wonder if local radio will ever be brave enough to promote social awareness and understanding rather than the 'tabloid journalism'of individuals with a sense of self importance.
I think it looks fab!
I just hope that the BBC has learnt its lesson, and will never de-localise its services again.

Nice to see Our ANNIE having a bit of respite in the mornings .It was always so soothing to wake up with her by my side. I don't think the Wife will let me layin till ten though to still wake up with her
What's happening to the other Coventry Kids (Cinderella and Prince Charming)Lorna & Geoff.
They had the best Saturday Show ever
GOOD LUCK to you all, we really need our own identity

Hi, looking forward to new station. Please could we see the new programme schedule in full. Heard a thing on the radio saying Lorna is on - but when?! Many thanks, Pete.
How Wonderful to see that CWR will soon be up and running again in its new home! I worked for the old CWR in 1990-92 whilst a student at Warwick University, assisting on Laurence Lee's show and the PDQ youth programme on Sunday nights, amoungst other shows! Thge demise of CWR was a great tragedy for the region. I wish everyone involved in the new station every success.
Notice how the presenters people are most happpy with are the truely local people (gaunty, annie, brolly, gurney etc.).
Why do we have the likes of Trish Adudu, Will Hanrahan & liz kershaw in our area ? They have shown little knowledge about coventry and are poor sounding. You have only got it half right Mr Clargo.
Where is Keith Middleton in the new line up? Why get the rest and leave out the best? I'm gutted, thought he'd be a sure bet for a prominent show. Goes to show the Cov and Warks managers consistency with the WM management - not seeing the star (occasionally) within their studios...
I thought this was a local station- so I was confused to see Liz Kershaw on the line up. Not that she isn't an excellent presenter but her talents and background do not quite fit the Coventry and Warwickshire profile.

I personally thought Will Hanrahan was awful when he sat in for Annie Othen recently, lots of bumbling and pauses. Only my opinion though! I don't think Trish Adudu is that good eithier. Again, only my opinion.
i think that trish adudu i swonderful !!
Where is Rob Gurney in the new line up???
Please Consider getting Rob Gurney back on your station.
He is a Sky Blue Fan through and through and i hope you have him back commentating on the Sky Blues, He is superb
Please Consider this

I drive every day from Brum to Stratford and have just started listening to WM from Coventry. It's great and I think Will is brilliant - but can we have more music between eight and nine? The programme is great from 9 until 9.30 (when I have to switch off) because the music is so good.

Will Hanrahan is dreamy!
Sylvia in Stratford
It will be lovely to hear Will Hanrahan on regularly. It's been a real pleasure listening to him stand in for Annie.
Steve in Cov
Well done! The new line-up is almost perfect. So glad you've gone for so many locals. Bob Brolly is the gem for Cov. Not too sure about Annie Othen, she does'nt seem to realise that having our own airport is a 'good' thing for the 'majority' of people and the economic and business life of Cov & Warks! Apart from that, good luck with the new station and presenters - roll on September!
Disappointed that no room could be found for Lorna Bailey, Norma Morgan and especially Keith Middleton (who seemed to be one of the most requested names on this page). Why have separate programming all day and then share the WM late show when it is their weakest show? Keithy-Boy would have been perfect in that slot but, if you had to share a programme late at night for financial reasons, Rob Underwood would have been a better choice. The line up looks strong but, think you have made a mistake with your after 10 programming. However, (there's always BBC Leicester for that programme and) I am looking forward to hearing all the other shows come September! Good luck...
