We have seen Alison Howe (John Peel producer) several times regarding Recoil and have given John both the 'Luscious' Promo, the 'Drifting' Radio Edit last week and the EP this week. He played 'Shunt' on Tuesday and we have heard that he also played 'Luscious Apparatus'.

We had a meeting with Fergus Dudley, producer of Dave Pearce and he really liked 'Stalker' and thought it worthy of an 'As Featured' list which has now replaced the C list. This features new releases ahead of appearing on the A or B lists and incorporates DJ’s records of the week.

We have presented 'Drifting' to all producers and DJs and gave the EP to all specialist shows. The general consensus in the production office was that it was brilliant! Bernie Caffrey who's standing in for Matt Hall (Pete Curran / Andrea Oliver producer) absolutely loves it and played it on Andrea's show on Thursday afternoon. She will be producing Katie Puckrick (Curran's stand-in) next week and said she would put it in one of her shows and would also rave about it to Jon Myer who heads the playlist.

Phil Wilding thinks it's great and wants to play it this weekend, either on Saturday's breakfast show or Phil Jupitas.

Miles Mendoza who will be the stand-in producer for Andrea Oliver next week, also thinks 'Drifting' is great and said he will programme it next week.

Patrick, Bob Harris' producer, said he really liked it and would ask Bob his thoughts this weekend. We spoke to Kim who works on the Laura Lee Davies show and she thought she may have played 'Control Freak' on last night's show.

The interviews Alan did for both Sean Hughes and Radio Russia went down really well last Saturday. Three fans drove all the way down from Birmingham to meet him and left with tons of autographs, pictures and very big smiles. Laura Lee Davies played the single again on last night's show.

Matt, producer of Pete Curran has been off this week but we spoke to his stand-in producer Tom and he told us that he really likes 'Stalker' and had put it forward for a review in this afternoon's 'Hit the Decks'. It is one of the 8 records that will be reviewed by Max Beesley (actor), Bruce Morton (Scottish comedian) and Lestyn George (GQ journo).
