Ask Anyone Who Can Remember Britpop Where They First Heard It, and the Answer Is Usually Radio 1

Joe Harland | Posted 16.06.2014 | UK Entertainment
Joe Harland

Where did you first come across London Grammar? Perhaps on the radio, though of course you could also have found it on Spotify, or via a shared link on Facebook. Where did you first get an earful of German Whip? It might have been on DAB, but equally it may have been Tumblr, or via Playlister, or on YouTube. However, ask anyone who can remember Britpop where they first heard the anthems of that era, and the answer is usually a great deal simpler: Radio 1.

The Unenthusiastic Dieter - The Big Fat Diet Finish

I started a diet on January 1st of this year and it has been a rollercoaster ride of sorts. I lost weight but I hated the dieting. I hated the focus around food and body image. I hated waking up and going to sleep thinking about what to eat, what not to eat and what I should be doing differently to look skinnier and prettier.
