    I listen to the radio when I'm driving...

    It's a good change from the internet/tv etc.

    No, I listen to it in the morning/early afternoon.

    Chris Moyles/Fearne Cotton - make a change from listening to my usual music.

    definately when in the car, and it's still a great place for new artists to promote songs and some of the DJ's are still quite funny!

    Yes, when I'm trying to get to sleep. The Digital Switchover means my portable aerial can't pick up enough of the digital signal to get a picture for my TV !

    Radio is pretty underrated IMHO.

    I listen to it for the features (e.g. Scott Mills) - because of the internet, radio has had to move towards entertaining people in a different way.

    I also listen to radio quite a bit to improve my own presenting skills, as I'm involved on the hospital radio.

    Yes, radio 1 everytime I'm driving.
    Chris Moyles makes me laugh soooo much, I love the random conversations they have and the games they play I love all the other Radio 1 djs too. It's a bit of company when I'm own my own in my car and i love "oh, what's occuring?" haha, i could listen to it all day.

    I never really listen to the radio. I don't like DJs, for a start, since I prefer unadulterated music without some idiot cutting the fadeout or the intro up, as they often do. Radio One is ****, Radio Two is boring, Radio Three manages to make classical music boring whilst Radio Four is good but I don't actually listen to it except on the occasion that someone else is listening to it.

    The horrible, horrible early morning song that Chris Moyles plays at 6:30am everyyy day makes me get out of bed and go sort myself out. Then I listen to him when I'm getting ready for school.

    Because there's **** all on TV. You can still find interesting discussions on radio and I'm a big fan of Mellow Magic in the evenings. There's only one show I used to listen to to discover 'new talent' but that was taken off air so now I just use youtube.

    I'm actually sick of Radio 1 and it's awful music. My local radio station (heart) is sooo bad for adverts, I just turn it off after 30 seconds. So, now I only listen to non-commercial radio stations online when there's an interview of a band I want to hear, or BBC Norfolk when my OH is being interviewed hehe.

    I like hearing people talking in the background, and the radio's selection is easier than making a playlist etc etc (I'm lazy)

    so you think 'talk' is what drives radio these days not necessarily music...

    I just don't see how the Radio can evolve, i mean there is the Analog switch off but even in Digital mode, if the radio has no substance it will just die off, i reckon.
