ROCK AND ROLL LEADER: So, despite his closeness to Lord Birt, the man who nearly wrecked the BBC, Mark "Call me Mark" Byford is doing his bit to seem as loose and approachable as his predecessor Greg Dyke rather than his mentor. The acting DG apparently goes to a gig every week and "cites Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips and Asian Dub Foundation among his favourites." On the other hand, he did slip away from his family to go and see Paul Weller. And, even more worryingly, he's old mates with Geoff Hoon.
