Good Music, no adverts.
Some Annoying DJ's
I've been a massive fan of Radio One and until recently I've not really thought of listening to much else. They are the biggest station and they don't have to have adverts though increasingly they do generally for some BBC Drama which also entered your subconscious via multiple television adverts.
Being one of the biggest stations they can get the best guests, interviews and competition prizes. They do also have a good selection of music including emerging artists though I would like to see them play more music from the last 10 years instead of every third song being from the weeks top 5 singles.
Radio One does have some quality DJ's Jo Whiley knows her music and Trevor Nelson and Westwood are the King's of their genre. I think the station is suffering for comedy now though, with Chris Moyles the least funny man ever to be labelled amusing. It's his show yet Comedy Dave is more funny, knows more about music and a lot more about football (Chris' new favourite topic of conversation).
Don't get me wrong even Moyles has some good points and the station is still quite good but I think they miss the presence of some of their former presenters such as Simon Mayo, Steve Write and now Mark and Lard.
