    “Sweet Home Alabama” – Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    Cannot listen to Matt Edmonson

    Like Nick Grimshaw he was far better at night, neither’s funny when toned down for 12 year olds.

    I think I’ve finaly gotten old, I actualy hate Radio1. Even Zane’s gotten a bit reppettative, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, “new Kanye”, “New Jay-Z”, it’s not f****** new, it’s exactly the same as his last song, only slightly worse!

    Started putting radio one on again recently as I thought it only fair that the kids should listen to some modern music and make their own minds up. God it’s f’kin aweful!

    Up coming Kiwi popstrel Lorde.

    For entirely personal reasons (too tough too explain), family Seadog all of the same mind.

    National Anthem at R4 end of broadcasting. Have to hit the off switch before that kicks in.

    Pretty much everything these days. Used to be able to listen to the radio all the time when driving but I cant stand it any more, so much talentless cheesy crap about and all the djs are incredibly annoying. I guess I’m getting old 🙁

    there was some god awful acapella rap on 6 music the other morning had me diving for the off button. Though it’s usually DJ’s that do it for me typically Stuart “i’d rather listen to cliff richard than the doors” Maconie.

    For some reason the Dog has got a dislike for “The Walk of Life” “Dire Straights”
    Every time it comes on the radio he goes mad and with local radio thats quit often, he just needs to hear the intro and Booom

    HE’S OFF

    It takes us a few minutes to suss out whats going on.

    ps their are alternatives to “radio” in this century

    Are there indeed?

    Although there was a quote (possibly atributed to John Peel) that said “DJ’s are the filter between the music industry and the listener”. Otherwise you’s just listen to the same albums your parents* listened to.

    *nostalgia ain’t what it used to be, I found my dad’s record collection. On ballance the 60’s and 70’s were pretty crap! For every Sabbath and Zepplin, there’s hours of unistenable bilge!

    There’s nothing wrong with the music. It’s the lyrics that attempt an apologia for slavery and racism that make me want to throw up.

    Do they ?
    I was under the impression that the bit about the “Guv’ner” was all done with a slight sense of irony. And that it was asong thrying to point out “we are not all KKK supporting idiots”
    And the Neil Young thang – they and Neil got on well. Van Zant used to wear a Neil Young T shirt on stage and visa versa.

    I don’t actually think SHA is a support song for the Southern Bigots POV/ the South Will Rise Again stuff. AFIK the Muscle Shoals Swampers, that they praise , were mainly black musicians , that could be heard on many great soul tracks.

    When I was a kid we used to have a housetrained rabbit who hated Phil Collins. Whenever his music came on, he’d bolt behind the sofa and start thumping. Once he leapt with such vigour he shat mid-jump, splattering the TV cabinet. We reduced the amount of lettuce in his diet shortly after that…

    Deary, deary me. 🙄
    Just because you don’t happen to like them does not make them overrated tosh.
    Try listening to the bland, safe, middle-of-the-road stuff that filled the charts in the late 50’s, early 60’s, where all the songs were written on a production line system and touted around the artist’s agents, meaning there could be three different versions of one song in the chart at any one time, then imagine what it was like to be a teenager, forced to listen to Andy Williams, or Cliff Richard, Shirley Bassey, Brenda Lee, Perry Como, Anthony Newley, Max Bygraves, Neil Sedaka, Nina and Frederick…
    Then hearing She Loves You, or Twist and Shout, or I Wanna Hold your Hand, and the sudden realisation that there were musicians of your age, creating exciting, exhilarating music that made you want to dance, and your parents hated!
    Try to gain a bit of historical perspective, before writing something off as ‘tosh’.

    Lady Marmalade – pointless nothingness
    Rock DJ – insipid rubbish, original and cover by old nob head himself
    My Way – narcissistic crap, sung by a crook

    Anything with bloody auto-tune on it.

    1) First attempt at everything is always crap
    2) If they were so good why did Oasis have to come along and re-write all their songs for them?

    for me, its not really the songs that piss me off.. its the constant playing of the things 4 times a day that eventually makes me sick to hear them.

    That skyfall thing from last year.
    plenty of that stuff mentioned above, for the same reason.
    that **** 8am ‘how do you like your eggs’ **** jingle that chris evans plays after moira finishes the news.. and that **** candyman shite.

    off switch reached for at 8.05 exactly.

    rantus completus.

    Anything by:

    Amy Winehouse – her voice grates me. Even the first time I heard her before she was famous.

    The Script – miserable, dreary and just awful.

    Mrs Toast – that made me chuckle, But I fear I must add a footnote to your story: Rabbits shouldn’t eat any lettuce, it’s soporific and slightly poisonous for them, viz

    “I just called……to say……” Aaa argh arrrrgh! Hateful bloody crap repeated endlessly. I loathe that song with a passion.

    I also struggle that I wanna hold your hand was groundbreaking – pretty dull simple song, I would have thought.

    Definitely Robbie Williams – I mean the “melody” to his last piece of crap ner-ner-ner ner ner na na na na ner ner… who the hell thought that would make a song? So unbelievable irritating.

    Thats my opinion and im sticking to it, we are discussing the radio of today not the 60’s. When i hear the Beetles on the Radio of today i switch it off. And i switch it off because i consider the songs to be utter tosh. No amount of history is going to change that opinion.

    You can’t even spell Beatles.

    I have to add – anything by Deacon Blue, Duran Duran (especially Wild Boys – why didn’t they get someone who could sing?), most novelty songs,
    Elton John, Meatloaf.. and my wife used to have this Radio 2 show on with show tunes – Michael Ball etc. man, that stuff is painful!

    Willy AM — Bang bang or whatever it’s called absolute cack…

    Kanye West — all cack

    Example — who told him he could sing?

    Beyonce — Wailing load of cack

    The Fritellies — almost chucked the cd out of the car window but the missus stopped me, it was hers.
