“Andy Bush”

Written on: 15/08/2013

I love Absolute especially Christian and crew and Frank Skinner but Andy Bush! He is not funny and his voice is monotone. Nothing personal but I enjoy the banter as much as the music… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2013 by rijkaard1 (1 review written)

I appreciate that some may like Bush and Donaldson but I have never found anyone who actually likes them. they try too hard to be funny and it just doesn't work. Bush is basically a hospital DJ who got lucky and Donaldson tries to hard to think of alternative 'cool' words when the one in his head will do nicely (jake bugalugs, billy bank holiday blah blah). I have never been compelled to write a review like this but they annoy me so much. I have decided to not listen from after the breakfast… Read Full Review

Great, I love Absolute Radio. Really does lift the spirits. However the adverts can be tedious but I guess this pays the bills. Overall very good station… Read Full Review

Guest's Response to Jobow's Review

Written on: 12/06/2012

I agree. He is totally wrong for Absolute Radio. His mindless prattle irritates me and he doesn't seem to have heard of many classic acts. His remarks are just not intelligent enough for the station. Get rid of him!

“ABSOLUTE RADIO”

Written on: 09/12/2011

Having listned to Virgin radio since its birth and then Absolute radio, i am sadened to hear how it has all gone down hill. All though the quality of music played is the same there is less of it and more worthless chat. I love listening to the radio when i am driving to work at around 7am but now i have switched stations because of the lack of music played on Absolute. My car journey last 30 minutes and in that time i would be lucky to hear two tracks. The rest is taken up with pointless chit… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/09/2010

I am an American who listens on the internet. I loved this station when it was Virgin Radio. I would have given it 10 stars then--they introduced me to so many great British alternative bands. Since becoming Absolute, it has sadly slipped to a much lower spot. Now we get rewarmed 80s stuff. Blah. I find myself listening to xfm a lot more now. I like to hear new bands, if I wanted to hear 80s stuff, I can get that from American radio at about six different spots on the dial. Too bad, this was a… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2010

I liked Virgin Radio before it changed to Absolute. Now it is garbage. DJ's too full of their own self important 'celebrity'status. Adverts for the station are incredibly annoying with a loud man shouting in a posh voice almost as irritating as the opera 'Go Compare' TV adverts. I have trried to persevere with it but can no longer listen for longer than five minutes. Hope it has a revamp soon… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/04/2009 by steverobinson0 (34 reviews written)

We have tried out several digital radio stations at work but we keep returning to Absolute Radio (formerly Virgin). It seems to keep most people mostly satisfied. They have a no-repeat music policy from 9am to 5pm, the DJ's keep chat to a minimum (and even then it's not inane bonkers like some other stations). The music is mainly a mixture of late 70s, 80s, 90s and noughties mainstream rock (some soft-rock, a bit of hard-rock, alternative, post-punk, new-wave, REM, Blondie, OMD, INXS, Police… Read Full Review
