Have only heard previously recorded programmes for the last two days!

I was on the 10am show a few weeks ago and they said they could not afford to pay any free lancers when the staff were away. Also the Programe Director is a tosspot

Thought both were recently back from leave. Maybe will become clearer in a few days.

Seems to be nothing except repeats these days! Too much leave!!

The station has decided to run repeats over the summer when the regular presenters are away, for many of the shows. It'll be largely back to 'normal' by September.

Strange way to run a radio station, but I guess one should not question that!!

Tough in the gulf these days with no decent BBC signal either!

Today Ms. Swann confirmed they and a number of others are on holiday! Seems odd as both just came back from individual holidays!. Seems best they just shut the station until all hols over. In the meantime find another frequency which is free of interference which 103.8 is not!!

Sounds like bad management letting every one away at the same time.
Alittle bit of forward planning would not go a miss here i think.

If you knew the guy running the station you would know why it is badly managed. To say he is a Bufoon would be being very polite and not very nice to Bufoons.

Do Jason Goff and Alan Hill still do the market commentary slots on that show? I'm no longer in DXB, so I haven't heard it for ages.
