    I can't believe the show of support for Chris Moyles on this thread, he's an overgrown obnoxious kid, the fact people actually tune in to listen to that drivel actually makes me lose faith in the human race.
    Me too!i cannot stand the whole jitter :eek3:

    I use to listen to the radio when I was at uni because I had no television and it killed the boredom/loneliness a bit.

    I usually put it on if I'm driving in the car but generally I don't really listen to it.

    The radio's great when driving, though there are of course times when I'd prefer my iPod. If you want news or just some unexpected music when travelling, the radio easily wins out IMO.

    I definately don't listen to the radio as much as I used to. I only really listen to it in the car sometimes and when I'm getting ready. I'll just usually listen to my own CDs or downloads.

    Isn't the radio outdated? Someone told me people use it to discover new music and stuff, i cant remember when i discovered any 'new music' on the radio. I can search and listen to any song i want on the internet.Isn't the radio just a waste of time now?
    i listen to talk sport 10:30pm -06:00. talk about everything. so no not a waste of time. Especially, if you want to express your views or listen to different opinions etc

    At home we listen to a lot of Chill Radio on DAB when we are preparing or eating meals in the kitchen, and I like 6Music live shows and Radio 4 in the mornings, so I wouldn't say that radio isn't a part of my life.

    I listen to it because there is an entertaining show on my local station. That's all. And it's useful for the car, because obviously you can't watch TV in the car, as it's distracting.

    I listen to BBC 6music. It is really good for finding new music, especially Steve Lamacq, although during the day it gets a bit middle aged. Danny Wallace has a good show, too, and Lauren Laverne is alright.

    I listen to the Today Programme, The Now Show and Just a Minute on Radio 4, too.

    Radio 1 is only bearable after 10 p.m.

    I still listen to the radio because it's an amazing outlet for me to increase my music collection. It started with Johnathon Ross on BBC Radio 2 but now I ignore him, then I grew to Steve Wright in the Afternoon and Sir Terry Wogan since my parents played it on the morning drive to high school.....

    Roll on my uni days with digital radio and lo and behold the day when I first tuned into BBC 6 Music and George Lamb :woo:

    It's got a lot to offer like Craig Charles, Stuart Maconie and my favourite Gideon Coe in the evenings when I'm working and if I'm doing an allnighter I flick on to TalkSPORT with George Galloway MP, Mike Graham or Adrian Goldberg in the very early mornings.

    Also listening to the radio is good 'cause I'm on the radio too at uni sometimes

    I like listening to my radio as I wake up or read or go to bed which is always once I've turned off my laptop - just rolling over and turning the radio on is far easier.

    Plus, I'm falling a bit in love with Absolute Radio recently. I used to listen to Kerrang! alot at home because there was some decent presenters for most slots, it was locally based and my kind of music. But then they fired half the funny/intelligent presenters and they do tend to repeat songs far too much. But Absolute have no repeats in the daytime (WIN!), have 80s music in the evenings (WIN!), have a slightly bizarre late night phone chat show like Kerrang! used to have and the presenters aren't too bad either.

    In the words of good Mercs, 'Let's hope you never leave old friend, like all good things on you we depend, so stick around cos we might miss you when we grow tired of all this visual'
