Which radio shows do you listen to?

Post by Elvistears » Tue Nov 27, 2007 15:28

I've never really listened to the radio much, except when I'm washing up, or late at night sometimes. At the moment, I'm in an office on my own and can have the radio on. Sometimes its just a crappy old wireless thingy - with a wire, sometimes it is an POSH COMPUTER RADIO. What would be nice to listen to? The computer will let me play ANYTHING. THAT'S HOW GREAT COMPUTERS ARE!!!
The normal radio will only let me play what is on. I am ready to kill Jo Whiley.

Thank you many, oh wise ones.

I generally only listen to the radio when I'm in the car or working in the lab, so I don't listen to any specific shows, just whatever happens to be on at the time. I tend to listen to radio 2 or radio scotland, largely because they don't play a lot of chart music and they have a lot of news and talking and that, and those are the kinds of things I like these days. I actually find the regional bbc radio quite comforting in a strange way.

There are a couple of shows I enjoy listening to more than others. Radio scotland does one on a Sunday night called Global Gathering, mostly world music and celtic stuff, which often throws up some really good stuff that I would never hear otherwise. It doesn't appear to be on at the moment though, for some reason. I know that lots of people hate them, but I like listening to Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie on radio 2 during the week, when I'm driving home after my Spanish class, and I like listening to Jonathon Ross on Saturdays. Or I did, I don't know if he's still on then.

Probably the all round best of the bbc stations in 6music (which I think is only online). It tends to have more music and generally better music than the other stations.

Actually, I just tried googling "indiepop internet radio" and came up with this site.

I like to listen to Freakzone (6music) and God's Jukebox (Radio 2) on demand if I don't get to catch them during the week.

i generally quite like having radio four on. it's like transpirational learning?, you know?, where it's on, quietly, and you're ignoring it, or washing up, and two hours later you realise that you know both sides of the argument regarding the digital signal switchover, or whatever else they've been studying in detail. late night on radios three and four really blows me away; it's so far away, so boldly dedicated to arcane topics, without fear of alienating, etc. late junction is always interesting.

i have recklessly misappropriated the word 'transpiration' in this post, and apologise for it. you get what i mean though.

Ha! I searched Anorak just then, to find any references to "internet radio" and this post came up. That Indiepop radio thing is my brother-in-law's website. He used to do regular podcasts and stuff, but then he and my sister had a baby and he doesn't have time anymore. Shame...

It's worth the price alone for 'Adam and Joe' and the Birdsong station.

Daniel appears to have come out of retirement and done another podcast. I've not heard it yet, but feel I should promote it anyway out of family loyalty...

The Freak zone scares me! I'm usually hungover when listening to it! It's like the soundtrack to The Wickerman.

I really like radio4 during the day, Desert Island discs, Womens hour,Book of the Week, even You and yours. Up all night on Radio5 is pretty good. The John Shuttleworth show on radio7 is great too!

6 Music used to be great all the time, but now it's virtually unlistenable until 4pm on weekdays, with Radio 1-type wazzocks hogging the airwaves all day. The decision to shunt Gideon Coe off to late nights and replace him with the odious George Lamb in the mid-morning slot a year or two ago still rankles with most long-term fans of the station. I keep thinking he'll bugger off to find his rightful place in Chris Moyles's "posse", but it just never seems to happen. Bah.

Rant over, Adam & Joe have been a terrific addition to the station's weekend schedules. It's just a shame they're always pissing off on holiday/to work on other projects really!

Other than 6, Five Live is my main choice of station, especially Drive and Five Live Sport. Fighting Talk's good too though. Oh and I always feel like I should listen to more of the comedy on BBC 7, but never quite seem to get round to it.

I am slowly working my way through How To Think About Science. It is good!

Also I listen to The Essay (usually) and Late Junction (sometimes) on Radio 3, and Something Understood (occasionally) and In Our Time (depending on the guests) on Radio 4. All via iPlayer, obviously - I probably wouldn't even know how to tune a radio.

I really enjoy Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show. It's a comedy show and the first series is currently being repeated on BBC Radio 7. I think it's rather amusing. I rarely listen to music on the radio but I find Radcliffe and Maconie on Radio 2 are alright.

Flaps, they got 3 silver awards.

I guess that doesn't really count as under-rated, but I feel like my team was let down by bad refereeing.
