What radio stations do you listen to? I was always a Radio 2 devotee but have now discovered Boom Radio and loving all the old 50s and 60s songs that meant so much to me in my youth.

I like Talk Radio the most especially Mike Graham. Occasionally I listen to Smooth Radio or Magic. My DH likes radio 2 and when I’m driving the grandchildren it’s FunKids.

We discovered Boom Radio last week when stripping wallpaper, decorating etc. I thought it was great lots of music from my youth. Most of the time I have Radio 3 on but this was cheerful music all the time!

I seem to be shackled to Classic FM but I’m getting a bit fed up with hearing the same music day after day. They seem to be stuck in a permanent rut. And why is there this tireless over promotion of Alexander Armstrong’s slot? Other presenters are available!! Time I broke away I think.

I listen mostly to Scala radio after it being recommended on here as an answer to that same annoyance Greyduster

I’ve discovered Boom radio too and I love it.

Embarrassing when I realise I can sing along with most of the songs though

I have enjoyed Boom since it first started all the old hits bring back memories, I also listen to my local Radio Merseyside early morning enjoying a good phone in for an hour between 9-10am.

On the very few occasions that I turn the radio on it’s usually Radio X
