May many more stations follow

If only there were a few more Beautiful-less stations.
English radio station bans James Blunt songs

LONDON (AFP) - An English radio station said it has banned songs by British crooner James Blunt from its airwaves after listeners said they were fed up with hearing "You're Beautiful" and "Goodbye My Lover".

Chris Cotton, programme controller of local radio Essex FM in southern England, said: "We don't have anything against James Blunt and we're pleased he has been so successful, but we really need a break."
"Often this can be out of step with the audience's tastes, which results in songs being overplayed," [no kidding] he said. "We're happy to stand up to this pressure and follow the strong message listeners have given us. We encourage other radio stations to take the same step."
I encourage other radio stations to listen to Chris Cotton. He has a cool name, and he makes sense. And he stood up to James Blunt.

I was singing it to a friend who hadn't heard it a few months ago, totally going into falsetto and only giving half of an effort to sound good.

I got a phone call from him two days later. "I just heard that 'Beautiful' song you'd talked about. Honestly, you sounded better than him. I'm serious! He's awful!"
