bland, dumbed down, daytime playlist and content, ...

Radio killed the radio star If it isn't broke don't fix it. Unfortunately this is one piece of advice that the bosses of Radio 1 either have never heard of, or ignore completely. When Radio 1 is good, then its excellent to listen to, but when it's bad, it leaves you searching around frantically...

“ *My Saviour*”

published 22/02/2006

You wake up with Moyles

You 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. I listen to Radio One in the morning around 7.45 on my way to work till about 9 and then on my way home from 5pm...

“'ONE' MORE TIME”

published 24/08/2001

Evenings.

Pop.

-[ What is Radio 1? ]- Radio 1 is a radio 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. There seem to be less N'Sync and Britney 'songs' being released, so Radio 1 is improving. -[ The DJs ]- Many of the DJ's...

“Tune in you Muppets. Now!”

published 27/07/2000

extremily funny at all times

none

No questions about it, this is the best show on radio. In an age where TV comedy has taken over and radio has been forgotten Chris, Dave, Mel and, reluctantly, Reese have rebelled and produced a show that is definitely worth listening to. Chris Moyles is the star of the show and the others make...

everything 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...

I did not know how much i missed radio 1 until last week when someone turned the station over at work to classic fm. I was horrified and after a good two minutes of listening to it i turned back to radio 1 just in time for mark and lard. These pair are absolute comedians of the radio waves. You...

Entertaining chat, cheesy tunes.

chat and tunes if they are not your scene!

Now I can't claim to be an expert on what happens on Radio 1 in the evening, but while I'm at work this station keeps me sane (and awake!). Mark and the boy Lard (aka Northerners Mark Radcliffe and Marc Riley) host the Mark and Lard show between 1pm and 3pm, which is an entertaining blend of chat...

“No longer number 1”

published 22/03/2002

Some good music and shows....

....but also some bad music and shows

Once again I have been at school and so I thought I should share some wisdom with what I do all day – that would be not paying attention, chewing my pen and getting it caught in my brace and dozing off at any given opportunity. Oh and I do a bit of work – how could I miss that out. No...

“ROCKS MY WORLD”

published 04/10/2001

Variety of music, fun and banter

DAVE 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...

“Radio Ga-Ga”

published 23/12/2001

More varied playlist than commercial stations

Sara Cox, too much banter

Radio 1 is one of those things that you can never avoid, like a cold at Christmas or Carol Vorderman. Millions upon millions of people rely on Radio 1 to play them their favourite songs, and to broaden their horizons as to which new music they should be listening to. I remember back in the days...

Mark and Lard, Chris Moyles

Sara Cox

Listening to Radio 1 generally gives me a couple of laugh out loud moments every day as well as a chance to dance around like a mad women. Since my son was born I have been around the house a lot more during the day. I listen to the Radio whilst giving him his breakfast, we have a sing and a...

Very pop orientated, not bad unless that's not you...

For generations now, Radio 1 has continued to be at the forefront of entertaining up and coming teenage youth by providing the latest information on pop music and chart music. As us 30 somethings get a bit older, Radio 2 starts to sound like Radio 1 did in the late 80's, and so we migrate, but...

None that I can think of.

Boring and repetitive.

Are you in the unfortunate position as I am where you have to listen to the radio at work? In all the factories I have worked the radio is blasting out the same music day in day out for 40 hours a week. In one factory they had the sense to ‘hot-wire’ everyone in to a multi-choice...

“The BBC goes youth”

published 05/05/2001

Mark and Lard, Dance output

Playlist is too small, too much repetition

When I was a kid, Radio One was your mate chattering away in the background, playing the hits of the day and providing a bit of non-braintaxing entertainment to accompany your work or drive. Fine. I used to enjoy Steve Wright and his stupid characters, Garry Davies's rubbish jokes and Tommy...

Ok you cannot expect miracles but this radio station has an unerring ability to put together a consistently diabolical playlist. The actual DJ’s are in general annoying and the humour puerile. I know that I am going against the mainstream of opinion in relation to the humour side of things...
