In a new Music Week article, BBC Radio 1’s head of music George Ergatoudis and Music policy director Nigel Harding discuss why they’ve left out the likes of Green Day Muse & Noel Gallagher on their station’s playlist.
Harding said former Oasis member Noel Gallagher’s music “feels more at home on Radio 2.”
Of Muse Harding went a little more in-depth saying the following:
“Muse are approaching a crossroads – their last single was the first one not playlisted by Radio 1 in a decade. The door remains open to them but we’ll have to think carefully about their next album.”
And of Green Day? Harding borderline dismissed the band saying, “The last Green Day project simply wasn’t good enough.” Harding of course talking in reference to the group’s latest albums Uno!, Dos! and Tre!
