    Seeing as I spend most of the time in my car between the 8-9am and 5-6pm period
    Just wondering what all you guys are listening to ?
    My local radio (MFR for inverness members) is pretty bad in the morning and Radio 1 doesn't have much music.
    cheers for the input...

    P.S Maybe time to go DAB lol

    this may sound sad,
    but trust me, radio 2 on a morning with chris evans is really good!
    quite funny and varied with no adverts and not the old fart station that it used to be!
    regional radio crammed full of adverts is not my cup of tea, and radio 1 is bobbins now!
    try it! you might like it!

    I agree with chez, Evans is ace on radio 2! Plus, he's a car nut so seems to spend his life talking cars which is nice.

    I'd listen to radio 2 all day if I could, I think it's ace. I hate radio 1 and local stations.

    I tend only to listen to music in the car if driving in the evening. During the day, I usually have 5 Live on. I'm a rock dinosaur so I stick to Planet Rock and Team Rock. Both are DAB-only,though. Haven't listened to Radio 1 since 1984.

    It's probably for the best, radio 1 is awful these days. Or maybe I'm just getting old? It all feels forced, that's my problem. Chris moyles was brilliant, but things have changed.

    Radio 1 mostly, but dipping into Radio 2 more and more. Plus a bit of 1 Extra and 6 Music.

    Another vote for radio 2, seems popular with car lovers..
    yeah that's probably the only thing MFR is good for haha.

    1 Extra and 6 Music are DAB, that's if you were referring to my post.

    Radio 1 is ok if Scott Mills is on but can't bear to listen to that p*ick Grimmy or the immature whinnying wench that is Sarah Cox! (even though she has been fired TWICE by Radio 1, they have taken her back!!!) Don't know why they didn't give Scott Mills the morning slot. I did occasionaly listen to MFR but suddendly couldn't pick it up anymore.
