The number one choice for dance and r'n'b

AdvantagesFocused on good music

DisadvantagesA lot of repeats

"Galaxy 102 in Manchester is the only station I know of that focuses solely on the music. None of this hours of adverts and presenters droning on. I personally like many others tune into Galaxy for good music and thats what I get. There is always the mot recent RnB hits and you can also always catch a good ole classis like Sisqo or Micheal Jackson. Then, as I'm getting ready for a night out all the club tunes are layed nonstop with no interruptions. The ..." Read review

Galaxy FM - Kickin'

AdvantagesGood nationwide reception, good dance music

DisadvantagesMainly dance music, can be repetitive sometimes

"Galaxy FM is available nationwide, and a good thing too. I moved from London to Bristol a few years ago, and missed Kiss FM a great deal, as I was now outside it's reception range, and used to love the dance mixes they put together. Then Galaxy came a long, and their up beat mix of club scene/dance music really livens my day up. They must have a play list to work to because some tunes get a bit more airplay than others, but overall, if you are ..." Read review

Galaxy 101, by CW666

AdvantagesBest tunes ever, lots of dance stuff

DisadvantagesLots of adverts, interrupting songs

"Galaxy 101 is the best radio station in South Wales and the West. It has a good variety of music, mainly dance, trance, house, garage, etc. In the week they run competitions, usually in the morning, the last one I listened to in the morning was one where you had to guess films, from a clip read out by one of the presenters. In the afternoon they have a cool DJ, Steve Denier, who has mystery workplace of the week, were you have to guess where someone ..." Read review

The New Galazy 105-106

Advantages30 Mins no stop, good music

Disadvantagesrepeats some songs ALL the time, dodgy news slots.

"...lucky enough to qualify was Galaxy even with much competition from Country stations, Rap stations etc. etc. Now they have the station there making sure they make a BANG with great songs, remixes and some dodgy presenters - have a listen and youll know what i mean - its not easy to put into words. They do play a good mix of music and have some great competitions, however there new slots are at dodgy times and have me completly confused - there at ..." Read review

Great public input

AdvantagesGreat music and cool DJ's

DisadvantagesThere ain't any disadvantages!

"Galaxy always seems to get plenty of public input into the show. People can contact the station by E-mail, Fax and phone. They even have a great online show. They usually play any song I E-mail them to play and if they can't they always reply with an apology. Nicksy is great and always makes time to talk to the listeners or have a shoutout for them on the radio. If you ask me this station is great and the music is fab too. The DJ's are great and the ..."

A sheep in wolfs clothing

Advantagesgood giveaways - some good music

DisadvantagesGenerally just another pop station

"Ah Galaxy 101 - whatever went wrong eh? I'm not a lover of commercial radio - radio adverts are six times more annoying than tv ones, but BBC Radio gives you too much chat and lousy DJS so I tend to have this on if I'm in the car etc. Galaxy 101 sees itself as something of a Dance Music Radio Station, but realising that in order to generate mass appeal you have to generate music for the masses the station has weakened its playlist and gone to a ..."

Anthony and JoJo

AdvantagesGreat Mixture + Presenters

DisadvantagesMaybe too much Dance Music

"Galaxy FM has got to be my favourite radio station, it broadcasts over the whole of the UK with great sound and signal quality all over. The best part of this radio station has got to be the breakfast show. The breakfast show is presented by ANTHONY + JoJo, the show features lots of great competitions such as 'DUFUS OF THE DAY!'. Dufus of the day is not really a game but just for entertainments sake, the games judge called judge sheran decides who ..." Read review

"I just cant stand this radio station it is the Bristol one. G A L A X Y 1 0 1 - play a selection of 10 or 11 songs throughout the day, over and over again, and the D J 's just are not funny at all cam and sally in the morning are highly camp and just a complete joke. they have no d j skills either, you sometimes get complete silence for up to a minute, and wonder if they have died or something. This station is just complete pants, and i cannot stand ..." Read review

All we hear is radio gaga

Advantagesgood music and prizes

Disadvantagesit stops when i get to work

"I always listen to Galaxy 105 in the morning on the way to work and absolutly enjoy Anthony and Jojos morning slot. They have such a natural bonding and come up with the most amusing and bizarre ways to entertain the listeners. The music is very up to date and i also like their attempt at playing a record from a decade ago some of which bring back memories. I particulary liked the competion for tickets to the Star Wars exibition in Bradford when ..." Read review

Galaxy 105-106 FM

AdvantagesThey are always up for a laugh

DisadvantagesThey tend to repeat songs after a while

"...music. My favorite show on galaxy is Steve & Karen in the morning. It really wakes you up and puts you in a good mood for the day ahead. They have phone ins for competeitions and request shows e.g the net 4 at 4, this is when you vote online for your favorite songs and at 4pm the top 4 songs are played. Then you have the top 8 at 8 which is the same but at 8pm. In the mornings they have a game that they play called battle of the sexes, where girls ..." Read review

Galaxy 105 for top tunes

AdvantagesAmmount of new dance music

DisadvantagesAdverts

"Well, Galaxy FM sure is a good local radio stations. One of its best qualities is the ammount of dance music it plays at night. You’ll often find that radio stations (especially radio1) are a bit boring at night and it’s the time where either the obscure music or love songs come out to play. Well, not on Galaxy 105. They probably realised this and took advantage of the gap, and they have filled it well. Galaxy can be found in about ..." Read review

GALAXY 105 and 106FM

Advantageslocal station but joins up to be part of national Galaxy FM

Disadvantagesnone

"...The best thing about Galaxy 105/6 FM is that it is a local station, however on the weekend it joins up with all the other local galaxy stations from around the UK to become a national station. The music played is current chart music without loads of boyband stuff which is great, and for an hour each lunch time they play the old school all request lunch where listeners can phone in and request their favourite songs from the past 15 years. At 4pm and ..." Read review

The new mix for the north East

AdvantagesGreat music

Disadvantagesto many adverts

"Galaxy is my favourite radio station of al times. (followed by radio 1 and metro). I like the way it plays both new music releases and songs from a while back. I also like the way it plays different types of music at different times, like dance at night time and so on. The only bad point about galaxy is that it has alot of adverts all the time which can get a bit boring when you put a radio station on to listen to music. It also starts has talking ..." Read review
