Classic FM radio a must for all ages
Member Name: Judey
Advantages: Nice to hear something different
Disadvantages: Reception not great in Somerset
Classic FM is found on 100 - 102 FM
You can even listen online at http://www.classicfm.co.uk/
We started listening to Classic FM when my son was told he had been put forth as a potential music scholar, he was told to listen to classic FM in preparation for his scholorship interviews.
At first it was a culture shock from our normal radio station which was heart FM but within a week we all found the 30 minute school journey was much more enjoyable, my daughter pointed out that I get less road rage, because the classical music on the radio helped keep me chilled. She may have some truth in that as I do actually feel more relaxed and I don't react when people drive like morons.
The kids are really into the radio now and yesterday I realised both their alarm clocks are tuned into classic FM too. I used to think classic was for old people but the amount of children who call in for a request has shown me that actually I was very wrong.
My 12 year old often calls in for a request on the kids call and a few weeks ago they would not get out of the car until we had heard his request which was of course "Flight of the bumble bee" which he has recently learnt to play. The neighbours are so delighted about that.
I would recommed Classic to everyone, its a bit like Marmite you will love it or you will hate it. Nice for children to hear something different from Lady Ga Ga (sorry not a fan of hers)
Only downside is sometimes the reception we get in Somerset isn't Great.
Summary: Try it and see
