hit and miss,

AdvantagesGreat for introducing the public to new artists and music

Disadvantagesbland, dumbed down, daytime playlist and content, tries too hard to be with it

"...teeth as nobody outside the BBC seems to dare say anything bad about her. The only one of any note was T4 presenter Maquita Oliver, who used to host the early breakfast show before Chris. On remarking that the best way to save Top of The Pops would be to "get rid of the devil woman that is Fearne Cotton" (something I agreed with), it wasn't long after that Maquita Oliver found herself out on her backside - pity, as she was a far better DJ than Fearne ..."

*My Saviour* Review with images

AdvantagesYou wake up with Moyles

DisadvantagesYou get home with Mills

"I first started listening to Radio 1 about 3 or 4 years ago and since then i have never switched back to local radio. Apart from the great music old and new, you also have great DJ's.

So generally i listen more to Chris Moyles breakfast show and Scott Mills in the afternoon. ------------------------------------------------- The ..." Read review

'ONE' MORE TIME

AdvantagesEvenings.

DisadvantagesPop.

"...channel run by our fine BBC and plays music. Many people have criticised it because it's pop pap, but it seems to be getting better.

And most of them know next to nothing about music of any kind. So whos on then? SARA COX. God, is this woman ..." Read review

There's talent now after Bannister made Blood

Advantagestalent on show is better than ever before. At last..some dance!

Disadvantageseverything goes in cycles...when will it end?

"If anyone saw the recent documentary on ex-Radio 1 controller Matthew Bannister will know that the station has been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. For anyone who didn't, basically the story went like this. In the early nineties the station was in the dolldrums. Dinosaur dj's like Bruno Brookes and Dave Lee Travis ruled the airwaves and listening figures were waining. Then Matthew Bannister came in and became the axeman in ..." Read review

ROCKS MY WORLD

AdvantagesVariety of music, fun and banter

DisadvantagesDAVE PEARCE

"From reading some of the opinions on the category of Radio 1 – l have found a mixed bag of feelings. Basically Radio 1 – you either love it or loathe it. Overall l love it – l always have done. The Past Back in the days when Simon Mayo hosted the Breakfast show, Simon Bates did the morning slots – remember the true stories with the awful background music, and Steve Wright did the afternoon bit – Steve was my personal ..."
