I like absolute radio- as well as decent music on there, theres the no repeat guarantee.
I also love gem 106- because i like the music, the guess the year and the presenters are good.

i listen to RTL on medium wave in my car. they always have https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Grosses_Têtes

.... it is a very jolly quiz/banter show where they ring people up to win the "suitcase" full of goodies. also people can set questions and win a prize if the panel cannot get the answer...

some of the questions are set by the production team using jokey names such as...

Mme Bellepaire de Loches, M. Sapan d'Houilles, M. Legrand d'Angers, M. Givet deSpa, Mme Boileau d'Évian, M. Jules d'Orange, Mme Pleine de Grasse, Mme Lafille de Garches, Mme Touffu de Lamotte, MmeMauri de Sète, Mme Lenvie de Béziers

I enjoy talk radio stations.
I particularly like
LBC (mix of presenters. Good discussion. Love Nick Ferrari)
TalkRADIO (Julia Hartley Brewer is a favourite of mine, disappointed they got rid of Jon Holmes)
BBC Radio 4 (for the comedy, love ISIHAC and the News Quiz)

Same for me.

Would have said TalkSport or LBC.

Can't stand the BBC for music, everything else is shite. Maybe one of the local pirate radio Reggae stations would be the best for me.

Really? Worst station out there for me: some of the stuff the presenters (particularly evening rush-hour - Durham?) come out with is so outlandish I'm convinced they're fishing for callers.

Mostly listen to planet rock (alarm clock) and five live on Saturdays.

Yeah but only because I'm not aware of many talk radio stations.

Best of a bad bunch.
