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

None stop tunes

AdvantagesPretty much none stop music

Disadvantagesadverts

"For a commercial radio station, Galaxy is good at playing music for a good proportion of every hour. There isn't too much talk and the music played is mainly dance and chart music. Throughout the day they have regular half hours where they play music none stop. The breakfast show obviously has more talk, but is usually quite entertaining and the male and female presenter bounce well off each other. Just recently they have been playing a lot of older ..."

Galaxy FM in the Midlands

AdvantagesGreat Music

DisadvantagesI'm not allowed to listen to it at work

"...in the Midlands at 102.2. Galaxy Fm is the best thing that ever happened to our local radio. The D.J.'s are great, the music is bang up to date and the mixes brilliant. I particularly love breakfast time radio while on my way to work. Dave Clarke is my favourite D.J. He is also readily available for a chat on the phone or by e-mail. The Station focuses on music for the younger generation,(o.k. I admit I don't fit that catagory). The station is ..." Read review

Play some new music

AdvantagesI've heard Paul Oakenfold is meant to be on it

DisadvantagesOld songs

"One day I listened to Galaxy all day as I was doing some work in an office. And they must have played sonic's feel so good at least once every hour sure the songs all right but after you hear it loads of times it begins to get a bit boring and repetitive. And the old skool request lunch - I don't want to hear songs from 1994 if I did I would get a old C.D. from home and put it on when I listen to the radio I want new songs or songs that are currently ..."

Galaxy 102 North West

AdvantagesOriginal, Funny, witty

DisadvantagesPlays the same music

"This is quite a good radio station, it has a very good line up of DJ on the air and my favorite is Adam Cole (breakfast show) he is so funny especially when he does the Benno and Gizzo phone wind ups. The rest of the station is good it has a good varation of the latest music although it tends to play the same songs on a day by day basis. Tens to attract the younger audience with the songs that it plays but even so if you are resident in the ..." Read review

Galaxy 1056

AdvantagesGood popular music, every single day.

DisadvantagesThe adverts.

"Galaxy 1056 is one of the freshest radio stations in the north east today. The music is fantastic, and the presenters do a top notch job. This is one of the few radio stations that you can listen to almost anywhere, whether you're at home relaxing, in the car, or even working. The music also covers a lot of people's tastes in todays most recent songs. The best part of the radio station is the morning show, with Steve and Karen. they offer up to date ..." Read review

what more can you want

Advantagesgood music

Disadvantagesonly small competitions and prizes

"Galaxy 102 is the second biggest pop music station in Manchester. Galaxy 102 plays loads of music- it even plays more music than Key 103. The tunes are always the latest releases and the best chart toppers. There are hardly any adverts, which is a really big advantage. It means that you can listen to loads of music without the stupid interruptions from the ‘have you had an accident in the last three years,’ advert. The bad thing to this ..." Read review

"I think Galaxy 105 is a great station but Antony and Jojo are really annoying and not funny at all. Lucio is the best d.j and they have good competitions i like the manage a tois and the things that Alex pepper gives away. The online show is also cool on a sunday and i have chatted to Alex Pepper in the chat room all go in it is good fun. They also need to have less adverts as they are annoying. the vip tickets are really good as well ..." Read review
