Default BBC Radio 2 Record of the Week - In My World

I've already mentioned it but In My World is on the BBC Radio 2 A Playlist which means it'll be played a lot over the next week and however long it remains on the playlist.

More importantly though it's the Record of the Week so it'll be played more than any other song on the station. Great news!

Fearne Cotton played it on his show on Friday. It was the first play. Ken is back tomorrow though.

I love Ken. I remembered when he played You Are. And he made great comments about Christine and the song.

He did, and I missed it.
He played it about 9:45.
Maybe James heard it and can give us Ken's thoughts.

He just said that it was new and it's their record of the week. That was it.

Mmmm bit low key, even for Ken.
Maybe he's suffering from school holiday sickness.

I don't normally listen to Radio 2 but I did on my way to/from work today in the off-chance it might get a play- no luck.
This might sound like a stupid question, but I was wondering what the song sounded like on the radio. When I play it through my computer it sounds 'tinny' (or this might be 'thin' as some people describe it). I was wondering what it sounds like on the radio- I mean, how does it sound within the context of other songs? Does it sound tinny and lightweight or does it sound okay? I was wondering whether it had been produced in a certain way to be radio-friendly.
Have many people heard it on the radio?

I can't offer radio. But, I can offer the mix in my car. And I paid a lot of money to have a wonderful sound system.

I can hear John thumping so hard, and Mick, too. Gives it so much more depth.

I wish I could hear it over the airwaves.

There's just something different about hearing a song on the radio- even digital radio. I was just wondering what the song sounds like within the context of other songs when you aren't expecting it. In a way, I think In My World has a bit of a sound of its own- I can imagine it standing out on the radio but I'm not sure whether in a good way or bad.

I haven't heard it on live radio yet, but if you go to the Radio 2 playlist http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/playlist they hav​e snippets of all the other songs they'll be playing this week, with BuckVie at the very bottom of the list as record of the week (it's at the top as well but for some reason won't play). For a comparison I listened to a selection of songs with IMW in the middle to see how it sounded - it does stand out with a definite sound of its own, but I couldn't decide if that was in a good way, and how general listeners would react to it.

I did here it on the radio, this morning.
It was quite a thrill to hear it and thought it sounded pretty good.
My husband who is not a big fan was singing it, later in the day!!

I thought Lindsey's voice sounded quite eerie at the the beginning of the track,
And then the chorus really hits you on the radio.
