    I've been listening to nation Wales a lot lately, they play a lot of indie, classic rock stuff... and for some reason it's the only station my mp3 player picks up from by bed

    Absolute when at home or near London, otherwise I can't pick it up anywhere else. Love the Geoff show (5-8), otherwise I stick Q on.

    In the car all I have is 1,2,3,4,classic,heart so I don't bother.

    Depending on my mood I'll listen to one of these:
    Radio 4
    Classic FM
    Radio 1
    Kerrang!
    Planet Rock
    Radio 2

    I have quite a lot so I selected "Other" on the poll.

    LBC!! And Choice FM for music.. does no one on here like choice??
    I was a huge fan of choice FM...

    But the reception, sound quality and frequency (basically the signal) seems to be very poor in my area so I've given up on it. (and I live in London - the location of its station :eek:)

    Apparently, its only separately licensed for services in South and North London and not officially covering the center of town - thus its licensed to cover limited areas of London.

    So I just stick to Radio1 in mornings and LBC at night :rolleyes:

    (of course if you stream online or have a DAB radio then its not as bad...but I dont plan to carry my laptop or DAB radio to every room in the house - too much effort etc.)
