IT TAKES A VILLAGE, IT SEEMS: So, although it's being dressed up otherwise, Radio One is axing the Peel Show. In place of the one show covering all musics, there's going to be one thread - One Music, which is currently a website. The new guys helming the programme will be affable Huw Stephens, who co-hosts the Thursday Wales opt-out, 1Xtra's Ras Kwame, and Rod DaBank. All excellent presenters, and the shows will doubtless be packed with great stuff, but it's a little like seeing the collection broken up and shipped off in pieces.
