HE COULD STILL BE A CONTENDER: But if they do give the Peel gig to Rob Da Bank, could someone persuade him to return to his given name of Robert Gorham?.

Slightly alarmingly in the piece linked to, Ian Parkinson floats again the idea that "no one person can replace Peel" - which seems to imply that his fiefdom will be split into three parts after New Year: in effect, then, the show will be dead as each of three presenters are likely to have a specialism and the concept of three shows a week of anything goes, built around a steady hand, will be lost. Let's hope they have a change of mind over the Christmas pudding down at Radio One.

(Besides - hiring three people to replace one man? Surely that runs contrary to the Mark Thompson BBC?)
