i stopped listening to R1 at work about a week after mark n lard finished.
Same here. After they left and the Great Man was just a voice on recordings, there was no reason to listen any more. R1 seems to just be full of the most annoying and inane tw4ts trying to be trendy all the time. And most of the music is shite, speshly during the day.
Moyles, espeshly, annoys me. Can't stand him, or the whole 'posse' set up. He'd be nothing without his little crew of bum-lickers backing him up, anyway. And he does not in any way really have much idea about music; just name-drops all the time.
Radio 1 is for kids, anyway. What a grown man in his 50s, like PP, is doing listening to R1, I don't know.
Plenty of internet radio out there, or listen to yer own choons.
I prefer stuff like BBC Radio London 94.9FM, because it's got loads of stuff about London; discussions, 'phone ins etc. Really very inertesting, a lot of the time. If I want music, I bung me iTunes on.
Radio 1 is nowt more than a vehicle to promote pop music. It's as 'commercial' as anything else.
