    Radio station(s) that you listen to: BBC Radio 2 mainly

    Why you listen to them: To educate myself more with different types of music. I can also achieve a very high quility noise to signal ratio on radio 2 (often as high as 70db) which means its by far the best quality. It also dosn't use as high compression as a lot of the commercial radios do.

    Most listened to radio station: Radio 2

    Most listened to presenter: It depends but maybe John Peel.

    How long do you listen to the radio, on average, each day: Quite rarely now.

    Where do you listen to the radio (e.g. in the car, at home, at work): Home

    What do you prefer - more music, or more chat, and why: Music, chat can be often be garbage on the radio.
    What would be the ideal (fictitious) radio station / show: A good indie radio station.
