This may sound a little harsh, but if I have to endure any more of the tinkle tinkle sounds, bright colours and annoying voices of children's TV screeching through my consciousness I am going to lose my bloody mind!

What Jimmy Savile Has Shown Us About the Male Response to Power

It is very easy to be righteously disgusted by his behaviour, and feel ashamed that we didn't take notice of his victims, however, the death of Jimmy Saville two years ago and the revelations which followed, still leave many unanswered questions about our relationship to fame, and particularly how men react to such power.

The Lowe Down

Zane Lowe has, over the last decade, gained a reputation as one of the best known broadcasters in the business. With his distinctive (if opinion-splitting voice) boundless enthusiasm, and easy going nature with guests, he has carved out a niche as the man bands come and see when they touch down in the UK.

Bridging the Twenty-Something Gap

Ridiculous as it sounds, I am convinced that this gap between adolescence and irrefutable adulthood lacks the cultural signposts available to other age groups. It's unsurprising that writers and directors turn to the supposedly hedonistic seventeen to twenty-one year olds or the nest-building thirty-odds for much of their inspiration.

An Age-Old Question

Next month, Radio 1 will make the biggest change to its schedule since announcing its plan to increase focus on younger listeners. Nick Grimshaw will take over the Radio 1 breakfast show from Chris Moyles in a move that has reignited a long-standing debate; should BBC radio stations target audiences by age? Without doubt, we live in a time when age seems less defining than in previous generations. In a recent interview on Radio 4's Front Row, 64-year-old Vincent Damon Furnier (aka rocker Alice Cooper) declared defiantly "now, 60s, you're in your 40s". And with many hip-hop fans heading towards 50 and thousands of young people attending the Proms, is it right that age remains a factor in targeting and judging BBC services?

New Music January on BBC Radio 1

George Ergatoudis

But why is it important that we support a wide range of new music? In my opinion, the biggest challenge facing any artist or musician today is simply getting noticed. The internet has democratised music production and distribution and the barrier to entry is now so low that the web is flooded with millions of tracks and thousands of undiscovered artists. Simultaneously, there has been a global decline in the number of trusted guides or filters with sufficient audience to make any difference and without significant gatekeepers operating at mass-market scale music makers will find it harder and harder to emerge beyond their niche.
