the takeover is wkd! even though i have not hardly heard of some of the music befor im lovin it!! defintly do it again !!!!! BIG IT UP 2 SWINDON!!

Paul Eley
Wow, i feel like a ten year old again, this stuff is magic!!! I wish i wasn't at work cooking pizza's though!

It's the eyyyyyyyyye of the TIIIIGGGGGGEEEERRRR!!!! Yay! I've stubbed my toe three times dancing round my tiny living room to all these fantastic tunes - but I don't care, in fact, I think 'the stubbed toe hop' may soon be a hit on the dancefloors of London... hmmph. I LOVE these boys for what they're doing today, I think I've developed three new crushes...

Listened to this whilst packing tent away at Reading fest. Brilliant. Gold? Bring on the cheese!

Needs more Benny Hill

Steve P
Eiffel 65 and blue is the GREATEST song EVER!!!

It's mostly been good, but why play recent tracks by Britney, Streets and Shapeshifters when they're on the radio enough anyway? More of the obscure/nostalgia please!

Dan, Belfast
Amazing, I still can't believe I missed the first hour and a half cos of school - House of Pain wow. Haven't heard that one in years

Sally James
Suspicious minds has got to be one of the best choice! Long live the King!

Some good choices so far. But, you know, if I was given the option of ANY song of ANY description ever then I wouldn't have chosen the Streets or Shapeshifters which are both still on heavy rotation. Still....

I just tuned in all the way from South Korea, and what do i hear? It's only the Ghostbusters theme song! Reminding me of the first tape i ever owned: 'Fiat Million Hits'. Oooh the memories. Now if you just want to step it up a bit and play Know the Ledge by Eric B and Rakim, i'll be a happy man.

caroline o
wow, gr8 hour. the beastie boys are just amazing, got me outta bed straight away. and blink 182 brings back gr8 memories from this summer ! keep it going thankx wouldnt mind sum chili peppers though !

'Supersitition'! One of the best tracks ever. Hard to believe now that little Stevie once was cool, but he rocked in the early 70s. Funky, sexy, great.

David from Sacramento, CA USA
The theme song to Danger Mouse.....?? You've just put me back in 5th grade w/ a pillow on the carpet watchin' Nikelodeon at 530 am!

Darren Johnstone
This is great, certainly helps with the hangover from a mad night in Harrogate. COME On!!

Katie Russell
this hours music is just the best,really fantastic and enjoying every minute so far keep up the good tunes Katie

Reasonably good, solid gold with spandau ballet, a bit of nostalgia with parklife, rocking out with Aerosmith and walk this way, dancing my t*ts off to the prodigy and feeling the pain with jump around, and it looks to be getting better... famous last words

Wow...i loved this at easter and even better now

So far so good - keep it up!
