    I used to listen to radio 1 all the time but im sick of it now. Chris Moyles needs bringing down a peg or two - far too arrogant.

    Used to really like Fearne Cotton but annoyed that she always seems to be talking about the gig that she got free tickets to the night before.

    I think radio in general is a bit **** now...i'm yet to find anything decent to listen to in the mornings.

    Hm, where do I start:

    • Chris Moyles and his incessant banter/lack of music in the morning
    • Fearne Cotton's whinging voice
    • Reggie Yates
    • The overhyping of EVERYTHING
    • A serious lack of good presenters; all of the 'good' ones have either moved on, or are on 6Music
    • Newsbeat - hipping up the news for the kidz
    • The fact that it's never good unless Huw Stephens or Bethan Elfyn are there
    • Everything is played 20gazillion times in a day. "....Florence and the Machine!" "Florence and the Machine..." "Florence Welch, from Florence and the Machine" GO AWAY!


    All of the above, but especially the fact that it is never good because the music is always the same. There is no variation on the daytime playlist; the request show basically lets people ask for...the daytime playlist...and even in the evening there is no real sense of "new music". I either have to sit with 6Music on my laptop or wait for Radcliffe and Maconie on Radio 2; or hope Huw and Bethan are on doing some sort of BBC Introducing thing. Even Zane Lowe's "new music" is either old, or he hypes it up so much that it's unbearable.

    Still, I listen to it for background noise. :rolleyes:

    Okay you've basically summed up my thoughts perfectly on this matter.

    Chris Moyles. Unfunny, rude and plays about 5 songs throughout the course of his whole show.

    I only listen to Greg James, Scott Mills and Sara Cox now. And sometimes Jo Whiley, she plays good music.

    I like Zane Low's show for the music, but I hate him. He's such a brown-nose.

    I love Chris Moyle's show, mostly for the banter. The music he plays is terrible, though.

    Scott Mills is great.

    Sarah Cox will never shut up about her children!

    I've never bothered with the radio but I can imagine them repeating the same songs and generally having a poor variety along with too much talking and too many adverts.

    Going by what others have said in this thread my assumptions seem to be correct. ;p

    When i happen to hear: "Dammmmmmmmmmmmn, It's WESTWOOD GOIN' DOWN ON RADIO 1 - SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY CATS ON THE STREET!!"

    I got sick of his show and hence, radio 1 is a radio station I no longer listen to.

    Everything. Much prefer Radio 4, especially the Shipping Forecast :love:
    My favourite way to fall asleep

    Radio 1 is ok for background noise when I'm not really listening,I like Scott Mills but Sara Cox irritates me no end. I prefer 6music. They play music older than a couple of years old and they read out my text once so I automatically like them.

    When I hit my stereo because I think it's skipping, then I just realise it's some inane 'song' on radio one.

    I'm not saying I hate it all, I'm just saying I hate some of it very much.

    That said, I do like a bit of Chris Moyles and Zane Lowe

    The fact that the DJ's seem to think that they're some kind of star and that we tune in to listen to them talking then when they do shut up, they play some rubbish song off the playlist that they have to stick to. All it is all day until Scott Mills finishes is different idiots playing the same rubbish. The only bit I like (if they still do it) is the Golden Hour on a friday morning.
