    Real Radio.

    Radio 1 plays crap whenever the presenters finally take a minute to stfu. And it makes me cringe. Real Radio plays a mix of quality tunesss and there is some good banter in between the tunesss.

    no he used to do weeknights from 7 till 10 but they moved him to the saturday night slot cos he wasn't 'serious enough'

    How come you've missed out Radio 2 but you've listed most other popular stations? I've never even heard of Club Asia.

    I generally don't listen to the radio, but when I do it's XFM. I don't mind listening to Radio 1 in the evenings when Whiley/Bowman/Moyles are off air.

    [online station]

    Anyone remember James Stannage? The legendary Key 103 late night chat show host who took the piss out of his guests, had deep discussions and ended up getting taken off air for some things he said? - He's on this station now.
    He's a complete knob tbh.

    I usually listen to Radio1, well, the scott mills podcast, most of the music they play on there is pretty crap.

    XFM when I'm in Manchester too, i think i might have to get a WiFi DAB radio thing so i can listen to it in leeds aswell.

    I listen to BBC Radio6 sometimes too.

    Radio 4 — there's something about its sound that's so much nicer than almost every other station.

    Plannet Rock.

    Because as rock stations go Kerang sold out (i know that term gets overused).

    Also Rick Wakeman and Alice Cooper make great hosts. Although most of the time i listen to my own music collection now.

    Soz dude...If I had put Radio 2 and 3 then I would have felt obliged to put radio 4,6,7 & 1xtra etc. (too many to list)

    I put Radio1 as its more popular among the TSR style "youth orientated" culture...whereas Radio 2 is more "adult oriented entertainment" and Radio 3 is more "arts and high culture".

    (I myself listen to Radio2&3, but seeing as a large majority of TSR are aged 'youthful', I put Radio 1 instead)

    (PS. Club Asia is like a popular Asian Radio station broadcasting live across London on AM - widely popular among the Asian culture in London - (I tried to be diverse and multicultural in my poll ) )

    Real radio, formerly known as century fm.

    the reason why? '80's 90's and now' as the like motto type thing goes
