With the flaws in the RAJAR process I wouldn't read too much into one period in isolation.

The problems with Rajar generally come when surveying for small local stations, as a tiny survey size can lead to some unexpected fluctuations.

If they're surveying across all of Wales, I'd expect the figures to be fairly reliable.

In BBC terms, they've moved quickly on this - going from OFCOM approval last month to launch within six weeks, although these plans have been mooted for the last two years.

After all the coverage about their worst RAJAR reach on record, it couldn't have come at a more apt time!

The only key change from the proposals first published is Monday - Thursday breakfast being extended to three hours and Lisa Gwilym's mid-morning show being bumped up from two hours to four.

I believe they're only getting an extra £10k budget-wise, which probably rules out hiring new presenters for now.

Still think it would be better to move one of the presented shows to Drive instead of having non-stop music as an opt-out - and the switch to music on Saturdays means Sport loses its additional platform for commentaries, which I felt was one of the better uses of RC2.
