This is just wrong

Okay so it's twelve minutes past 11 on the 11th November, Armistice Day. I've got Absolute radio on and they've quite rightly just observed two minutes silence at 11am. What did they follow it up with? Music. Fair enough, they're a music radio station but how about these for songs?


All Quiet on the Western Front - Elton John

All Together Now - Farm


I get the sentiment but does anyone else just find it a little bit cheesy?


Also, did you know that radio stations have to play background noise when they observe 'silence' because if they have silence then a back up recording kicks in that's designed to ensure that it's not silent if a DJ dies or something. That's why you will have heard Big Ben chiming followed by something like traffic if you listened on the radio.
