A second helping of Lamb
Lesley Douglas, Controller of 6 Music, on why George Lamb is a good thing in The Grauniad.

"Men tend to be more interested in the intellectual side of the music, the tracks, where albums have been made, that sort of thing," she said.

"We want to broaden it out - there is absolutely no reason why women shouldn't love 6Music as much as men love 6Music."

Translation (provided courtesy of Sesquipedality):

George Lamb is a bit tasty. (Geddit.) Unlike that munter Gideon Coe. We realise this is Radio and no-one can actually see him, so it's kind of a moot point, but we'd better wrap it up in some sexist bollocks with no scientific basis about how men and women perceive music differently and hope no-one notices.

That quote is from over a month ago. The BBC Radio feedback show called "Feedback" on Radio 4, had a big section on Mr Lamb, it caused a who-ha back then too....

From what I hear he should go.

*googles* Hrm, quite tasty. But looks not trumped by personality in this case. Meanwhile, sign a petition.

Remember: stabbing is non-gender specific. It may not be a stimulating intellectual argument, but I really doubt he is the kind of person who listens to those anyway.
