What radio stations do you listen to?

I hop between Virgin, Radio X and Magic.

Youtube streams fulfil that purpose for me now. If I don't feel like selecting my own music I just open youtube and type the genre i want + 'stream' (or 'mix')

Unless you actively enjoy the intermittent babbling of tedious presenters and 10% of the airtime filled with ads, I'm not sure why you would choose to listen to the radio.

Thanks for reminding me Xfm had become even more soulless.

That does annoy me but I need something to listen to on the commute, when I take a break from my own music.

Still got a soft spot for KEXP.org's stream (and podcasts and archives)

Radio 3, Humberside for Hull commentary (fuck you Viking #allamout) and I occasionally listen to various German stations if the music's going to be any good. Radio 4 is good for the documentaries and PM, the rest is jokes about middle class people eating hummus.

It's a shame DAB didn't take off - its fucking ace. My new car has a DAB and its a game changer.

Radio 4
Radio 5 live
Sometimes Radio X

The problem with DAB, especially early on, was the signal. Half the time I can't find the station at all, and when you do but it's weak, the sound it makes is horrific compared to a bit of FM fuzz.

Plus I think plugging in your iPod came around at the same time. All I do now is stream shite on my phone.

I used to listen to Kerrang when I was a teenager. It was great, the music was good, the DJs were good. Then it slowly turned to shite, the owners fired all the good DJs, and it turned into a bunch of work experience kids playing enter sandman and smells like teen spirit on loop.
Eventually the owners binned it and replaced it with planet rock. It was a bit pants but it was decent enough to listen to in the car. A couple of years ago they binned that too and replaced it with Absolute 90s.
I switched to teamrock radio (it used to be DAB but by the time I started listening they'd switched to internet streaming only.) Teamrock radio was great, but they started running out of money last year and got rid of all the live DJs, then they went bankrupt before Christmas.
Now I'm listening to primordial radio which was formed by a couple of ex-teamrock DJs. It's better than nothing but they don't play as heavy music as I like.
Teamrock radio has been re-launched by the new owners, but they've locked down their stream so it only plays on their website or their own app which makes it useless for me.

I bought a DAB site radio just so I could listen to it at work.

There's no adverts because it's BBC and they play a good variety of music. I used to listen to triple j when I lived in Australia and this is the only UK station I've found that is similar.

As a bonus for the .gs listener, at around 1pm every day you can catch the Blackout Crew putting a donk on whatever song is being played.

Do you listen to are Nige or O'brien?

Also I think the image would be better with Paul Dacre, instead of Hopkins

I don't listen to LBC but I get the impression O'Brien is the only progressive voice on it.

I listen to whoever's on at the time. I fucking hate James O'Brien. He's who I mostly listen to because I have no friends and eat my lunch in the car.

I don't find Nige's show very interesting, Nick Ferarri and Iain Dale I enjoy. I can't stand the bloke on late at night with his bloody soundboard, it's just bloody irritating. Maajid Nawaz is really good and normally very sensible.

You're the exact opposite of me. I think O'Brien is brilliant, and enjoy Nick Abbot (the soundboard guy). Can't stand Ferarri (Establishment-worshipping blowhard) or Dale (sinisterballs).

Nawaz reminds me of Sam Harris: a stupid person's idea of what a smart person is like. That whole Tommy Robinson affair shows how he is little more than publicity-seeking showman. That said Hasan is fucking awful, too.

There isn't much wrong with what he said. These kids need help. They aren't a crutch for your racist worldview. Have a word with yourself.

What's wrong with that? Is it because he didn't set himself up as a defender of capital C Civilisation like Ferrari would, and go on to opine about the eskimo Problem?
