All it is is music performances and a chart rundown, 19 October 2003
Author: Greatwhitewhale from London, England

I tend to switch over when someone rubbish plays. But when someone good plays, I watch. I find the presenters quite annoying, they need comedians like Johnny Vegas not Fearne Cotton! And it's such a BBC programme, it bigs up Lame Academy!
