And the ceremony was well rounded-off by the personality crown going to the ever affable and somewhat dazed Mark Radcliffe – who, as a life-long City fan was clearly unused to having a good time at Old Trafford.

[quote]Edit: Just a thought. Radcliffe and Maconie is now the most popular Listen Again on Radio 2 I think they were saying last week. That's good on one level but bad on another if people are not bothered about listening live. It does make the shows better in my experience. It's too tempting to skip stuff on listen again.
 
Could Marc Riley be stealing live listeners on a Wednesday and Thursday?

 
 
MOST POPULAR SHOWS
Wake Up to Wogan  
Jonathan Ross  
Russell Brand  
Sounds of the Sixties  
Chris Evans  
 
This week it has dropped out of the top five.

I wouldn't know where to start to make those images of Mark and Stuart. The woman that made it was called Sue I think and If you want to hear what Mark and Stuart thought they talked about it on last Thursday's show.

"TWE Hour 2. Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie
by Paul Carruthers
 
I wonder what Wilson would have made of social media? I’d bet he’d be there, right in the centre of what’s happening in Manchester and getting his hands dirty. Embrace it? Of course. Feel threatened by it? Unlikely.
 
I also think he’d be right there at the beginning of i4SM and driving it forward.
 
13:10 - Stuart Maconie is late…and Mark Radcliffe is 50. He’s also telling porkies about the press rooms screens not working. Elliot Rashman stepping in for Maconie.
 
Getting into small radio stations was a better route into the industry than being a researcher at the BBC. Recalling how you could just get stuff done, by weedling your way around the organisation. Piccadilly Radio back in the day reflected this - Mancunia music just wasn’t being played. But Radcliffe was able to get into the playlist after pestering to get on the air. Eventually they got two hours one day to play A Certain Ratio, followed by the local cricket scores!
 
Rashman asking how the radio nowadays can get by without even having human DJ’s during the day! It’s an interesting one. Technology has replaced the old style DJ’s because after all, XFM etc are commercial stations - the bottom line is king, and replacing DJ’s with pre-recorded ‘junk’ helps the bottom line.
 
Even I’ve been one of XFM’s DJ’s. I kid not. Link to follow.
 
13:15 - here’s an echo for i4SM’s ideals. Tony and Mark Radcliffe both massive proponents of the North and Manchester in particular. You shouldn’t have to go to London - there’s a massive pool of talent, creativity and drive up here and Manchester needs to stick it’s head above the parapet a bit more.
 
That’s me speaking. But Radcliffe, Wilson and i4SM have the same goal at heart.
 
13:20 - Maconie: Wilson felt that if you didn’t have people who thought you were wrong, then you weren’t doing something right! Radcliffe…”Yeah, I lost 2million listeners from the Radio 1 breakfast show.” Applause…and just because it didn’t work, doesn’t mean you were wrong. That’s the spirit. That’s the kind of attitude we need more around the country…its a trait that Americans have in spades.
 
Indeed, business schools will tell you…fail twice to succeed in business.
 
Radcliffe is eminently entertaining. Effortless in his northern-ness and a genuine nature that justsmakes you want to go out for a pint with him. That’s a digression.
 
13:25 - Wilson saw Factory Records as being in the lineage of great northern creations. The canals, industrial revolution and the new Joy Division album. Hey and why not? Manchester needed a leap of faith and Wilson was keen on ensuring that it took the leap.
 
Look around you. Perhaps Wilson had a profound effect on what has been the Manchester renaissance, giving us a peek at the “bright lights of possibility into a bleak landscape”. Manchester has a wonderful history of invention…yet we could argue that it doesn’t capitalise. Baby (the first memory capable computer) is an interesting case in point. The first computer music (early MP3 here)…let’s break that down - Manchester invents the computerand ends up with a massive music industry. This is Manchester.
 
The US takes the computer and forms a huge new industrial and service sector for the rest of the world. They get Silicon Valley. We get Factory Records. Which is better? The world would always have had the computer…but perhaps not Factory Records.
 
13:35 - Lovely story from Radcliffe about Wilson bringing Blue Monday into Picadilly Radio and demanding he played it immediately. Not the A-sde though…the instrumental B-side! After 7 or 8 minutes…well, you get the picture.
 
Interesting Wilson theory. His cycle was 13 years…1963, 1976, 1989 - seismic ripples in the music industry. Wilson takes on  Schumpeter anyone?
 
13:50 - Lovely comment on the mogulus channel. “Wilson - the author of manchester”."

Is he okay?
 
You would hope that thinking over all the stuff would put him in the mood to try to recapture the glory years. Instead, he's awfully close to deserving another clip round the ear with a golf club.
