I'm not surprised :( , i called my radio station some time ago and asked for "I want it all" and they said they didn't have it

Our local radio station, Mansfield 103.2, have got every Queen song that's been released, but then again most of the DJ's are Queen freaks.

That's typical in most radio stations. They only pick 2 or 3 songs per artists and no more.

The truth is radio stations have access to artist' whole catalogues, they just don't want to pay for extra songs :-(. I used to work for a radio station, believe me, they're tight.

I couldn't believe that in one day I heard 4 Queen songs on the radio over 3 different stations; an easy listening station, a new music type station that was on the 'no hard rock, no rap' session and a usual hip-hop/hard rock station. I heard Radio Ga-Ga, Bohemian Rhapsody, I want to Break Free and We Will Rock You.

Of course I've never asked to hear Don't Stop Me Now or Sheer Heart Attack..although that would be good.

It seems everytime i put the radio on, Queen are on, they must be the most played artist's on UK radio.

its probably the same reason why they wont play Transiberian orchestra's O come all ye faithful/Oh Holy Night song but they'll play other songs from them...either that and the song has a strong guitar lead on it

Really, what stations are the best for putting their songs on most?
Cos all the ones I go on, I wait and wait but they never seem to come on. PLus that bloomin' Air Guitar Advert! I missed it yesterday my mum saw it however, I scremed, " Ahhh why didn't you record it" Adverts like that are hardly ever on. I probably will never see it.

"It seems everytime i put the radio on, Queen are on, they must be the most played artist's on UK radio."

"In fact, here in Venezuela, all the good DJ's appreciate Queen's contribution to music."

And then there is the USA and Canada who can't get enough of Eminem and Nickelback.

It's nice to know there are radio stations who have maintained their taste and have not fallen victim to the demands of currently popular culture.

Hi everyone!

I've got a little story to contribute towards the Queen - radio topic. I'm working for a local radio station in Nuremberg/Germany and we do have a feature called Music Monday. The general idea is to introduce an artist with a pre-produced feature, and to play two of his/her/their songs per hour. So I volunteered to do a Queen - Music Monday especially for the 24th of November. I did prepare three features (1970-76, 1976-84, 1984 - now) and a so called "playlist" stating when a certain song has to be played. So far so good... I handed everything in after one week of preperation AND surprise, surprise the hosts and DJs totally ruined it! They played songs I did not select (Radio GaGa or We Will Rock You anyone?), and they gave commmentaries like: "This is what we were listening to when we were young - we didn't have anything else" or "my favorite song is the one with this Spanish woman.. what is it called?". I knew some of those guys don`t like Queen but to listen to my work being butchered on air was awful.

Before the Freddie box-set our local station was having a charity day where you could ask for any song. Anyhoo someone asked for Larry Lurex and trhey put out a plea for someone to bring it in because they didn't have it. They played it, and Brian will kill me, but I taped it off the radio the first time I ever heard it.


Guess who's back?

"There was a time here in Venezuela, when A LOT (and when I mean it, I mean it) of radio stations who only played Salsa and a lot of bad music taste."

Salsa has much more depth than Eminem or Nickelback. :)
