Beechgrove somehow manages to survive and flourish on garden content..... without gimmicks.
Balls to you, Nigel!
I always feel that is it's 'gimmick' - Northern Plain Speaking, No Frills - nothing wrong with that of course, but that is its programme style which is as considered and planned as anything on GW.
And some people prefer that and others prefer another style. Just like some were Beatles fans and others preferred the Stones. And then there was the Blur/Oasis thing. And some watch Strictly whereas others watch the dancing on ice programme whatever it's called.
