“Sarah Cox sits in for Steve Wright”

Written on: 15/11/2014 by Rollinsrw285 (1 review written)

I love Radio 2. I have it on all the time in my car and home. I just wanted to let someone know that when Sarah Cox comes on my ears start bleeding. I have to switch off. How does she have any following at all. She drives me crazy… Read Full Review

“Presenters”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by 121Fernandez (1 review written)

Being a regular listener for many years I have always enjoyed the overall coverage and the info you can pick up on the way with the friendly and easy going presentating staff. The likes of Jimmy Young would temper their style with humour and when needed the more serious stuff with dignity and respect to the guests and listeners alike. I am not liking this new breed with presenters who are all about themselves. The most recent Claire Balding who takes every opportunity to mention a particular… Read Full Review

“Frequently edited music.... Grrrr!”

Written on: 29/11/2013 by PaulSupermajor (1 review written)

R2 used to be my favourite station but I am increasingly annoyed by the patronising way in which music played by this station is edited to shorten the records. Today was a prime example when they played Rasputin by Boney M on The Steve Wright show (oldies section) and they edited out the entire second verse, then seamlessly joined it as if that verse didn't exist! This is just one of many well known songs they have done this too, mainly from the 1970's. Do they really think no one will notice?… Read Full Review

“Good but beware `Guest Presenters`”

Written on: 16/03/2013

Radio 2 delights & annoys in equal measure. For every likeable, knowledgeable & down to earth presenter such as Johnny Walker or Bob Harris there is a battallion of others who are very irritating. I can`t bear to listen to Elaine Paige as she is the epitome of a musical theatre luvvie. Lisa Tarbuck is even worse. I`ve never heard anyone mantain such a relentlessly sarcactic & affected tone. Early afternoons are often ruined by Steve Wrights absences whese he is replaced by the likes of Vanessa… Read Full Review

“Radio 2 Best Ever”

Written on: 16/03/2013

I have listened for years since Jimmy Young (how long?) and still find it a good overall station for music, features and bits of politics and general knowlege. My fave show is Steve Wrigh's especially the non-stop oldies. There is nowhere else you get to hear them played especially the nineteen sixtys and seventys that is from my era. However I am not keen on his old woman, elvis and barry from watford - they are just too silly for words and a right turnoff… Read Full Review

“Time For Change”

Written on: 04/10/2012

Two people really irritate me. Lisa Tarbuck comes across as insincere. I don't find she really really listens to what listeners are saying and often gets words, names wrong and stumbles a bit. The other is Jeremy Vine who comes across as self righteous. Recently he let a woman caller ramble on incoherently about packaging. As she was clearly upset he could have cut her call short as he does when he disagrees with someone but no he let her get increasingly distraught. Did he think this was… Read Full Review

“jeremy vine”

Written on: 22/09/2012

When Jeremy Vine took over for Jimmy Young I though what an excellent choice but nowadays I find he comes across as biased and cuts callers short if he obviously does not agree with them. He also is quite rude and can be heard making the odd sarcastic comment after someone has spoken on the line as he did today when a man had finished on the line. It is so infuriating. Also the show ought to be renamed as he is hardly ever on. However I do enjoy it when others stand in… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2010

Best radio station ever,it has got to have the widest spectrum of music on it's playlist. Beats commercial stations with their endless half hour loop of the same tracks, annoying commercials and mindless DJs.

Varying DJ styles and programme formats, catering for a wide range of people. Chris Evans in the morning with Moira Stewart for the news is outstanding, people who are put off hime by his stint on Radio 1 should try him out again, he has much improved with age!

The DJs are not full of… Read Full Review

Absolutely great to hear Ed Stewart again on BBC Radio 2. We still so miss his regular spot on a Sunday evening. Any chance he will be doing more regular shows for Radio 2? I am absolutely positive I am not alone in thinking it would be very popular… Read Full Review

I have just switched Ken Bruce off! I got sick of his sexual inuendoes and I'm sick to the back teeth of the comments this morning about the horse thats been given to the queen! I am not a royalist in any way at all, and he obviously isn't! I think he should keep his personal views to himself! I don't know and i don't care, just don't use the position you've got to air your views! I will put Radio 2 back on when he's gone off air… Read Full Review
