Why oh why isn't he presenting the Radio 1 chart countdown?

If James was able to play the records he talks about on his podcast (I'm guessing copyright restrictions prevent him from doing so) this is exactly what a chart countdown should be: informative, presented by someone who cares about the records and the charts, anaylises chart movements, and generally knows what he's talking about. Unless you're under 12, in which case do listen to Fearne and Reggie over at Radio 1...

Cracking podcast

Have been listening to this for a couple of years now. Excellent - really informative without being dull or pompous


Week after week, factual and fascinating. Only wish it lasted longer. A MUST for chart fans of all ages.
