    'That's How People' added to the Radio 2 B-list.

    Radio 2 (the most popular radio station in the UK) has just announced their new playlist (for 5th Jan). THPGU is on the B-list.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/r2music/playlist/
    Should be enough exposure to get it into the top 20. Will probably need to go up to the A-list tho to make the top 10 (You Have Killed Me and FOTG both reached the A list).
    It's on 6 Music's playlist too. It's been left off Radio 1 (quelle surprise!) and I don't think Virgin have added it to theirs...

    I find the whole playlist thing very depressing.

    Bring back Payola!

    It's a safe bet Russell Brand will play it on Saturday then! :)

    Too right Michelle, Russell Brand is sure to promote the song, I had a dream that the single went in at no. 9 - It would be so nice to beat no. 3 though.

    It will only beat number 3 if it gets A listed on Radio 2, and playlisted at Virgin and Xfm; that's the magic combination!
    The fanbase would probably get it close to the top 10 regardless of airplay but good airplay will push it higher and enable it to stay top 20 for more than one week...

    do people still listen to the radio , i dont even know if i have one anymore ... do playlists still matter , i looked at the charts in HMV the other day and to be honest i dont know any of the songs . this from a person who feels he is well in touch with new music .

    I do listen radio at least 3-5 hours in a day, but hardly listen to XFM lately due to their dull play list.
    In UK at least BBC has 7 national radio plus local stations which is fantastic.
    I usually listen BBC London because of its decent programmes, but miss 90s because there were full of good music programmes at that time, but they changed it about 8 years ago.

    I used to listen to radio a lot when I was a teenager but not anymore. Nowadays I find new music online. It's easier as I don't have to listen to any music I don't actually like. If I listen to radio, it's usually some internet radio station. Maybe listening to radio every once in a while would expand my horizons to new music though. You never know.

    Looks like he could be the highest new entry, judging by the competition:

    28th January 2008

    Atomic Kitten - Anyone Who Had A Heart
    Bob Mould - The Silence Between Us
    Cajun Dance Party - The Race
    Cassie - Is It You
    Dominatorz - Do You Love Me?
    Elliot Minor - Still Figuring Out
    Hot Chip - Ready For The Floor
    Laura Marling - Ghosts
    Matchbox Twenty - These Hard Times
    Michael Jackson feat Will.I.Am - The Girl Is Mine
    Morrissey - That's How People Grow Up
    New Sins - It Doesn't Work Like That
    Primary 1 - Hold Me Down
    Richard Hawley - Valentine
    School Of Language - Rockist
    The Duke Spirit - The Step And The Walk
    Thom Yorke - Atoms for Peace (Four Tet Remix)
    Those Dancing Days - Hitten
    Tin Man - Tonight
    Urbnri - Young Free & Simple
    Wallis Bird - Counting To Sleep
    Yves La Rock - Zookey

    Still, I think top 10 would be a huge success.

    Hope Richard Hawley does well too - he sounds like Moz sometimes:)

    Hey, THPGU has just been promoted to the Radio 2 A-list!
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/r2music/playlist/
    It's seriously good news for the success of the song. R2 is the UK's most popular station and this means it will get lots of play throughout the day.
    Probably means it has a v good chance of going top 10 and will also boost the fortunes of the 'greatest hits'.

    This is not a good thing. Moz won't be able to complain about getting no airplay after this! :rolleyes:;):D

    oh, he'll still have cause for a good moan!
    no other station in the UK is touching it (with the very occasional exception).
    lucky for him that the only Morrissey-friendly radio station in the UK is also the country's biggest!

    That's How People Grow Up A-listed on Radio 2

    Despite all the criticism here, THPGU is on Radio 2's A-list starting next Monday:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/r2music/playlist/

    This more or less guarantees it will be a top 10 hit, according to Maurice E anyway :)

    Ah, yes, but what does he know?!

    It's an interesting one. I doubt it'll match the number 3 success of Irish Blood and You Have Killed Me as a) the consensus is that it's a pretty average song and b) there are no new songs on the b-sides. Also, I don't think any other stations have play-listed it.
    I'm not even convinced that I'm gonna buy it myself tho I probably will.
    Should just about make the top 10 though...

    I can't actually listen to the radio in my office, but my workmates in a different area have been telling me "That's how people grow up" has been played a few times today already and Terry Wogan played it yesterday.:D

    Hi all,

    I'm New here, Not sure if this has already been posted but Moz is now on Radio 2's A List.

    I find "Thats how people grow up" a grower I wasn't crazy about at first after hearing it on You Tube, But Love it now and it sounds great on the Radio. I think it could definitely be top ten.

    Whats every one else think?
