      radio for up to 30's

      Radio 1 is for the type of listener who doesn't just want to listen to music but also to listen and interact with the talent. There is every taste catered for at some point in the day. If your thing is on a some stupid hour you can listen to it again online using the iplayer service at iplayer.co.uk there is also a podcast version for free which includes non of the music but all of the chat.

      There is obviously no ads on the radio being the BBC and at the moment the schedule roughly following this format:

      Dev - early breakfast
      moyles - breakfast
      fearne cotton -morning
      Greg James - afternoon
      Scott Miles - drivetime
      Zane Lowe - evening

      after that is different each day with a different type of music catered for. There is also some good weekly special the best one for me is the show where they review the new music of the week and get special guests to rate it. The banter is always very good and opens your eyes to new things you wouldn't normally assume you would like

        Its listenable but not my favourite

        Ok radio 1, i use to always avoid this radio station through the 90s and the early 2000s but it is slowly kind of growing on me,

        The huge huge huge advantage of this station is the lack of adverts on the radio, galaxy FM tends to be my favourite radio station however due to having to listen to 5 mins of adverts after more or less every other song i just cant bear to listen to it anymore and this is what has forced me to radio 1.

        Firstly the Djs, Scott Mills and the team are pretty funny and i do enjoying listening to him, usually his show is the "on your way home from work " slot.

        In the morning its Chris Moyles and the team, i can not stand this guy at all he really does bore me to tears and talks rubbish all morning with the occasional song. Sorry if you guys like him but i think there are much better radio Djs out there and this guy gets well over rated.

        The music is of a good variety and i have no complaints there until after dark, sometimes in my job i have to work late at night and i fidn myself listening to radio 1 thinking " why the hell are they playing this !!!!!"

          chose your favourites wisely.

          How do you write a review for an ENTIRE radio station?! There are bound to be aspects that you like and don't like. I, for example, love listening to Scott Mills and previously Colin Murray, but absolutely hate Chris Moyles and amn't a big fan of Ferne Cotton either.

          But I'll try anyway....

          The late night shows are generally better, I think. Since each of the DJs have mostly a specialised field of music (eg. Daniel P Carter rock show), they tend to feel much more passionately about music, unlike their daytime counterparts, who ussually just play the regular mainstream (not that theres anything wrong with mainstream, I'm not an elitist!) tracks ALL the time. Variety during the day is ussually hard to find.

          Also, since they have less exposure than the daytime DJs, they tend to have a more humble approach, not blatantly roaring out: I AM THE BEST!!

          I also hate how they're shamelessly promotional of everything Radio one during the day. I know that they say BBC radio stations are good because they don't have any adverts, but listen to Ferne Cotton, and you'll see how everything she says is realted to "tune in laters" or "go onlines". Bloody annoying.

          But there are deffinately exceptions to this day/night rule. Some DJs I really like because they have genuine senses of humour and good music tastes. Example of the first is Scott Mills. I like how he was taking the piss a few days back of the Masterpiece thing by Zane Lowe (who just keeps talking. I don't think he knows the meaning of commas or full stops. On board! On board! on Board!!) and wanted to play the entire Busted album from start to finnish. I actually laughed out loud.

          Unfortunately, the big bossess came down and put an end to it, but you get my point?

          And I also really like the Live Lounge, previously owned by the serene Joe Whiley, and how it gives variety to the monotonous drone of chart songs, 20 times daily at least.

            Disadvantages

            I've pretty much stopped listening and just endure the adverts on local radio instead

            Maybe I'm just getting old but I hate Radio 1. I don't listen to it regularly but when I do usually end up turning it over in annoyance. The biggest draw is that being a BBC station they don't have adverts which is an annoyance on the local stations but I find that the presenters are too wrapped up in their own ego to provide any entertainment.

            Worst of the bunch has to be Chris Moyles, I'm sorry but I just don't know how people find him funny, I think he's really annoying. Last time I ended up listening to his breakfast show I was treated to 5-10 minutes of him tuning up a guitar that he'd found in a cupboard - is that funny or entertaining? Clearly he thinks it is but not for me.

            I also find Sara Cox really annoying, again her show is all about her, with stories about what she's being doing with her kids which are neither funny nor entertaining, and in the case of one I heard not so long ago about going to the zoo, just swung between boring and offensive.

            I'm sure there are good programmes, if you like new music / live music / festivals etc there are probably particular programmes that cater for this very well. I just want a radio station that I can switch on at any point during the day and listen to a bit of music, maybe a bit of news or debate and Radio 1 is not the station for this.

              Overall not great but some really good DJs

              I was never a fan of Radio 1 back in the early 2000's and before, mainly because of their attitude to their listeners and the people that rung in who were taken the piss out of by the presenter. Now though I am an avid listener.

              Overall Radio 1 is pretty rubbish, it is only really prime-time radio (early morning, late afternoon, evening and night) that is really any good, DJs such as: Chris Moyles, Scott Mills, Zane Lowe and Judge Joules. I can't stand the current daytime DJs such as Edith Bowman or Sarah Cox, they just do my head in. But the decent DJs make up for this and their shows are funny, they do still play the same new songs over and over which don't seem to be out for months so that when they do come out your sick and fed up with them. I do like the fact that they bring you lots of content from festivals in the summer if you are unfortunate enough not to be able to go. Also they do have some high profile guests on their shows which are good and unlike most interviews you see on TV etc... they do get them to do some funny things.

              My overall assessment of Radio 1 is that as long as you listen when you go to work and when you come back again you shall be fine.

                Thered always something for everyone

                Hi today i will be reviewing BBC Radio 1.

                I usually listen to Radio 1 at night as its something to do while trying to get to sleep (not a bad thing!). I personally enjoy the Chris Moyles Show and Scott Mills mainly because I find Chris funny and Scott has some great features from the old angry pizza man wind up to the new Whats Becky's Forté
                which features Becky the Assistant Producer trying to find that talent she excels at.

                The Chris Moyles show is different than most other shows on Radio 1 in that its not just the presenter that gets involved the whole team have a great time and in turn help you to get ready for whatever your going to.

                During the day there is Jo Whiley, Sarah Cox and Edith Bowman. I personally don't listen to these just because I'm usually busy. For the few times I have listened to them they do film reviews phone ins and play lots of music compared to Chris Moyles.

                In The evening there is Zane Low who brings a lot of new music and Westwood. I don't listen to these mainly because Westwood annoys me and Zane Low from when I have listened to him isn't funny and I enjoy comedy.

                At night there used to be Collin Murray who has now left sadly. I used to listen to him for his great Black Hole feature in which listeners of the show send in clips they have found on the Internet from the sesame street count with the words bleeped out to make it sound dirty to great undiscovered talent.

                Early mornings are currently filled by Greg James. The only time I hear him is if i listen to Chris Moyles early. He seems to be really nice and up for anything as you will find out if you listen to any of the other shows as hes usually featured somehow.

                On the weekends there is great people like Vernon Kay and Dick and Dom used to be on not sure if they still are. On Sunday there is the chart show hosted by Ferne and Reggie. Then late on Sunday there is Switch which is a combination of shows including The Surgery where listeners get help with their problems. This show is hosted by Aled the producer from The Chris Moyles Show.

                All in all This is a great radio station obviously as its the BBC you get the feeling everyone is being over cautious and trying not to offend anyone but it doesn't affect the entertainment too much.

                Thanks for reading

                  Radio 1- great for entertainment, not so great for news

                  I listen to Radio 1 most days. I find that the Chris Moyles Show on my drive to work entertains me and keeps me awake, making me laugh and getting me in a good mood for thw orking day. His team are well constructed and seem to have just as much importance as Moyles himself.

                  The other DJ I listen to the most is probably Scott Mills. I don't rate hima s highly as most people do, as I think his team don't work quyite as well as that of Moyles. What I do like, however, are his games and quizzes. These are often hilarious, using the general public in surveys, etc.

                  Other DJs throughout the general working day include Jo Wilery and Edith Bowman. I like both of their shows, and I like that the niche each of them has created for themselves kind of ties in with what daytime TV would be doing, such as phone ins and film reviews and music. Wiley is known as being a bit of a pioneer of new music, and is good at finding new artists and featuring established ones doing covers in her live lounge.

                  I don't often get a chance to listen to Radio1 in the evenings, but on occasion I have sort of enjoyed shows from DJs suchas Zane Lowes and Westwood, when they're on. I couldn't listen to them for too long, though.

                  Weekends see Vernon Kay and Sara Cox give a more relaxed and fun attitude to the show's construction, emphasising that it's a weekend and a time to relax and enjoy bed, festivals and going out, or perhaps spending the day with family. Sunday afternoons have the chart show, currenrly with Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates.

                  There are plenty of other DJs, but these are the ones I manage to catch and remember more than the others. I rate it very highly, but the one thing you don't often get is detailed news analysis, which I fin a bit disappointing. The news os reported, but the emphasis on radio 1 is firmly towards the entertainment side of things. There are often guests on promoting films and music, andthese take precedence over the politicians and representatives that other stations such as Radio 4 or 5 would give us.

                  Overall, I really like Radio 1. Sure, it doesn't cover everything, but then the BBC target it at a stereotypically younger generation, intending to attract those who want to listen to entertainmet and fun, knowing full well they have other stations which focus on news and poliical debate and current affairs. For me, I flick, as I would do with the TV, but if I need waking up and want to be in a good mood, as opposed to a thoughtful and pensive one, then Radio 1 it often is!

                    Disadvantages

                    If current and new music is you - then listen in

                    I am an avid Radio 1 listener. It's even playing as I type this.

                    Growing up, I used to listen to the local station, but my patience grew thin with the constant dodgy adverts - why do they always have to be so childish yet catchy so you find yourself humming them later on??

                    Since joining the ranks of 'employee' Radio 1 has become the station of choice. Mainly because of the up-to-date music and lack of adverts.
                    Thats not to say some aspects dont grate.

                    Although Mr Moyles wakes me every morning, sometimes I have to turn him off. The rants that man gets on can really grate on my nerves, and the lack of music and time checks do bug me. The amount of times I've laid there waiting for the half seven news before getting up, only for them to say it's 7.35 and hand over to the news late! It can get very annoying.
                    That said, the guests are top-notch and tend to bring the best out of the breakfast crew.

                    I don't get to listen to jo Whiley much, but I do love the live-lounge when I get the chance. Radios in the morning tend to be frowned upon at work, tho actively encouraged come afternoon!

                    That brings us to Edith Bowan. Used to love the show she did with Colin Murray, and it did take her a long time to get used to not having him beside her i think. Now tho, she's in full stride. But some of the music she plays can only be described as rubbish! Most is good, but the occasional 'new' music she throws out has me reaching for the tuning dial!

                    Scott Mills is not my favourite presenter, I have to state here and now. I find his humour childish, so will say no more about his show. I tend to switch the car radio to Chris Evans (Radio2) for the ride home instead.

                    From the weekend crew, we get my favourite two presenters of the whole station. Vernon Kay and Sara Cox. They are both so bubbly and down-to-earth it's like sitting down with a good friend for a chin-wag!
                    When they cover the week-presenters it's always guaranteed to be playing in my office - lucky that my colleagues happen to agree!

                    The chart show on Sunday is what you'd expect. Fern Cotton and Reggie Yates are good together, but it seems to be rare that they do it together these days. Other commitments I guess, and they've taken to bringing a guest presenter in to sit with the remaining one.

                    As i stated, I do listen to this station. I've tried to give just a quick round-up of the shows I hear, without rambling too much, so sorry if I've missed someone or haven't gone into enough detail for some of you.

                    I'd recommend this station, although my bloke is a Radio 2 man as he keeps reminding me (I take it as meaning he's an old fart!).

                    I think music can keep you young, and the mix of recent and new music this station plays will certainly do that - I feel younger now than when I left school!

                      Disadvantages

                      A great station to keep you entertained 24/7

                      Well I listen to Radio 1 all the time. As it's really the only radio show with no adverts, (apart from it's own) it's the only one I enjoy. There is a wide variety of music on there, and it really does give everyone a chance to find something they will enjoy.
                      These are the day time shows:

                      Chris Moyles: Chris does the breakfast show, I think he is fantastic. Although he can be a little vulgar at times overall I think he is a comic genious. I used to listen to him when he did afternoons and think he has improved with time. The team he has on there with him only make the show better, they always make me smile in the morning.

                      Joe Whiley: Joe is an institution. She has been on the channel for as long as I can remember. While she lacks the comedy skills of other presenters she really knows her music. The Live lounge's she does have to be the highlight of the show. She get some real big artists in and there have been some classic moments.

                      Edith Bowman: Edith does not quite do it for me. I just find her a little irritating. She plays good music but don't think she is quite up to standard, I would much rather have seen Sara Cox take this slot as I think she is far more entertaining.

                      Scott Mills: I didn't like him at first. But now I do. Some of the features on the show are brilliant and really do make me smile. He has no shame and makes sure everyone knows it! Again he plays pretty good music although all the daytime shows just tend to play stuff off the playlist.

                      Then at night there are a range of shows you can listen to. Shows that feature Hip Hop with Tim Westwood (who I really can't stand!) rock shows, new music, dance music something for everyone. Zane Low is one of the highlights in the evening, he brings in a lot of new music and picks up some real gems! Really worth a listen.

                      My personnal favorite is Colin Murray. He has had the 10pm show for a few years, however he is finishing as of next week. A real shame as the new music and alternative classics he plays are nothing short of stunning! Mixed with some genious comedy clips he finds around and some really weird music. This has been the best show I have ever heard on the radio and am sad to see it go.

                      Overall a really good radio station. Plenty on there for everyone to enjoy!

                        Not bad but could be better

                        If you live in the UK, as I think most people that use Dooyoo do (that's quite fun to say!) then chances are you will have listened to Radio 1, most likely recently, maybe even today or maybe even as you're reading this. It's everywhere. On a sunny day you will hear it in peoples cars when their windows are down, in shops, a park, everywhere!

                        From 6.30 in the morning Chris Moyles will greet you. Most people either love him or hate him and there seems to be very few people who fall in between the two. I used to like him more but I think recently he has fallen off from his best work and I wouldn't agree that he is worth the huge salary that he gets. Dominic Byrne on the other hand is worth whatever the BBC pays him. The man makes anything he does worth listening to. Driving along in the morning I couldn't help but laugh at the things he says. The other main member of the Chris Moyles team is Comedy Dave. Again like Chris Moyles he was funnier a few years ago in my opinion. The one thing I will say without doubt in Chris Moyles' favour is that he introduced the world to Longman. A shop owner turned fitness trainer his calls into the show from time to time were some of the funniest moments. I still laugh when thinking that "Mickey Mouse won't let Longman in his house" or Dominic the Donkey!

                        The middle of the day schedule I'm not too much of a fan of. Jo Wiley and Edith Bowman are the usual presenters for the daytime slots. I can't really say Im a big fan of either. Jo Wiley does tend to focus largely on music, which is no bad thing, but for some reason I still can't find myself 'enjoying' her shows. Edith Bowman I just find annoying now. When she was working with Colin Murray I thought the 2 of them worked brilliantly together and I listened to them most days when possible. Since he left to do his own show, she seems to have just become very moody and if anyone criticises or disagrees with her opinion they are usually met with a grunt and some sort of moody reply. The idea of having a programme that largely features movies is good though.

                        The drive time presenter is Scott Mills. My favourite presenter on the whole radio. I think he is just brilliant. Every show is hilarious and the ideas they come up with are so funny. Even on the radio they somehow manage to get across to the listener what is happening when they are doing more physical entertainment. Sometimes it can be childish but that is right up my street. The American phone book game especially was genius! Chappers and Becky, and formerly Laura, also add in their pieces to make the show the best on the radio.

                        The night time presenters vary too each night with the "In New Music We Trust" shows which focus on different genre each day so there's something for everyone. Before these shows is Zane Lowe, who by all accounts, is a highly knowledgeable music lover who provides good music and interviews with the biggest names in music.

                        I would listen to Radio 1 more than any other station although not necessarily for the presenters. They play all the newer music that is coming out so if it's reasonably popular then it will probably be played. The variety is also a bonus that could get the listener introduced into someone they wouldn't normally listen to. Overall, they do a good job of providing listenable to music but their presenters could easily be upgraded if they tried that little bit more.

                          Number one for my daily drive times

                          Radio one? Now that has got to be my favourite radio station - I tend to be a bit of a channel flicker so I switch occasionally to my local radio station. This is just because I like to hear things about my local area but as soon as the adverts kick in I'm back to good old radio 1 who'll never be guilty of boring me with endless ads (Oh yes! that's what I pay my T.V license for!). So I'd say i'm definately more of a radio one girl.

                          In this review I'm going to do a summary of Chris Moyle's breakfast show and of Scott Mill's drive time - simply because these are the main shows I listen to in my working week (the way there and the way back). I am making the assumption that these are the main, most popular shows for this reason. I'll also put in a brief who's who of some of the main DJ'S and their time slots.

                          The Breakfast show ~

                          Ahhh good old Moylesy, and yes I am one of those who finds him funny (I know many find him very irritating). I am often to be caught laughing out loud as I drive myself to work. As the show starts bang on 6.30am and lasts until 10am I pretty much catch it every morning regardless of what shift I'm on. The show is fronted by Chris Moyles, Chris has a few pals with him on these early morning stints, these are; Dominic Bryne (News), Carrie Davis (sport), Aled Jones - who also has his own shows on radio 1, Rachel Jones (of no relation to Aled as far as I know) and of course Comedy dave! This lot have fantastic chemistry together and the banter is just gold. A few things that do annoy me though are the lack of music (although this has gotten better recentely) I have in the past driven the whole journey to work which is between 25 minutes and half an hour and not heard a single track. I suppose they do redeem themselves with the absence of adverts on this one though. The other issue I have is they sometimes do watchable shows and I think because of this they sometimes assume you can see them and do jokes that rely on this. In summary though, Chris Moyles is a comedy genius and I love him for getting me to work every day.


                          Drive time ~

                          This is another one which I catch most evenings as I think it goes from 4pm to 7pm, This at the moment has some really funny bits on it - two of my favourites being 'Oh, what's occuring!?' and 'the posh radio four lady' who reads out texts, letters and emails to the show. Doot, Mon. In 'Oh, what's occuring!?' they do things like go to Stupid street - a real street!, and ask people random questions. Or try to guess how many times Sara Cox talks about food in one show or how many times Chris Moyles trys to flirt with a singer from the Saturdays in one interview with her - all very entertaining. I also like 'The Game with no Name' in which Scott gets listener's to text in their favourite song of all time and then plays three at random - I love this because potentially any song could be played - mine would be Kate Bush - This Woman's Work (still waiting for the day when Scott will play it). This show is fronted by Scott Mills who is joined by Mark Chapman (better known as Chapper's), The one who doesn't speak (Who is actually the producer) And Beccy Huxtable who is the assistant producer. As on Chris Moyles' breakfast show these lot have great chemistry and great banter together, their conversations can include anything from Scooby Doo, to Pampous grass!

                            Advantages

                            Disadvantages

                            One of the best universal radio stations around

                            Radio 1 is a popular music radio station from the BBC. It's available throughout the UK on FM or DAB and around the world via the world wide web.

                            I think it's fair to say that I'm not in the target audience for radio 1's standard audience, which I think is probably 12 to 30 year olds. I'm sadly a long way over that! However I've been a fan since not long after the station launched (in 1967!) and have stuck with it over the years.

                            The station plays popular music from the charts during the day, and then goes a bit more alternative with lesser known rock music in the evenings. It plays more dance music and urban music at the weekend (or so I'm told by my son - I only listen during the day on weekdays).

                            A big plus for me over commercial radio is the lack of advertisements on Radio 1. There is sometimes a bit too much talking on the Breakfast show with Chris Moyles, but he's often very funny so I can forgive him if he prattles on for a while. He also gets some big name stars on his show and interviews them in a very humorous manner.

                            Mid morning has been the slot for Jo Whiley for the last number of years and she is fairly inoffensive. She regularly has artists performing in her 'live lounge' where the band or singer will cover a famous song which is always very entertaining.

                            Edith Bowman does a show in the early afternoon where she reads out listeners text messages and has a film expert take over her show most days.

                            Scot Mills has the drive time slot. His show isn't so good and has lots of fake items with 'Chappers' and 'Becky'. It always seems like a very poor imitation of the Chris Moyles breakfast show to me.

                            All in all Radio1 plays good music, even for the middle-aged generation, albeit with some irritating dj's.

                              .

                              'You are listening to Radio 1 and I am chris moyels" These are the words which I crave to hear at half past six every morning. While I am still very much asleep The happy, larger than life Chris Moyels is funnier than ever. It is a great start to the morning, and I know many of you agree! Chris moyels is always cracking jokes and makes for great listening. He is always interviewing celebrities and just generally taking the mick out of them! There is alwasy a selection of music, but it is generally pop, indie and dance. There are always the latest up and coming artists on the sataion and offers a wide range of shows for different dance styles. I also love listening to Scott Mills on the way home, who is always getting people to do daft things in the name of music. He is deffinetly a pop type guy, playing the latest tunes. I thourghly recomend listening to Radio 1. Go on ditch those generick local shows and gor the creme de la creme of the radio!

                                BBC Radio One.
                                I listen to Radio everyday and tune in to the Chris Moyles show and Jo Whilely then its home time :D, I have been listening now for 2 years solid. I love the different mix of music andb the good funny conversation on air between the radio 1 Dj's.

                                FIRSTYLY Chris Moyles! what a legend. not only a Leeds United fan but probably the best radio DJ around at the moment with him been backed up brilliantly with the other radio 1 dj's.
                                The different conversattions on mornings get you pulled into the conversation and makes you talk at work about it, i love the car park catch phrase which is on going at the moment which me and fella at work have applied for! I love the different music played on Radio one like I said previous i love the fact they play the new, the old and play the new releases.
                                The Radio one podcasts are available aswell released on the saturday of every week which gives you an over view of whats happened on the show through the week. I really enjoy listening to radio one above any other radio stations.
                                You can tune into radio one on FM 98.8 or tune in via the internet on bbc.co.uk and go to radio then radio one.

                                I would seriously recommend anyone listening to radi one with the great music, good conversation and the general mickey taking also the funny call in games which are played!

                                  I love this radio station, have a listen for yourself.

                                  Radio 1 the best radio station around

                                  I started listening to radio 1 around 3 years ago and I absolutely love it. Even if I don’t manage to listen to it while its on live. I tend to have a listen online and by downloading there pod casts.
                                  You have such a range of brilliant dj’s my favourite being Scott Mills and Chris Moyles.
                                  Radio 1 plays such a mixture of music the old and the new stuff. I haven’t been listening as much in the last few months due to me having a baby and I tend to be quite busy, but I do really miss it. I found that I got really engrossed in the djs themselves and enjoyed the different they each do.

                                  Scott Mills

                                  Scott mills makes me laugh so much I loved his Laura’s diary and 1 night with Laura thing he did. It was hilarious.
                                  He would everyday get Laura’s sister to read out a section from Laura’s old diary over the phone live on the radio. Laura is a lady who works on the show with him. It turned out that Laura was quite unlucky in love and then came part 2 which was 1 night with Laura.
                                  This was a competition that he set up where as they toured around the country doing auditions for men to spend a night with Laura and to find her love.
                                  Scott mills is on every weekday from 4-7.

                                  He also does flirt divert. Which is a funny thing to. He gives out the flirt divert mobile number to every1 who wants it on the radio. You’re supposed to give it to people who chat you up who you don’t like and he plays the messages left on the number out on the radio. You get some really strange people on these messages. It’s a great listen.

                                  You can take part in different things on radio one online like rat my listener. Which is where you rate what you think of a radio 1 listener who has posted there picture online and who speaks on the show on the day that they are up to be rated. You can do lots of different things on there website like listening to the radio live on the pc. Or listening to previous shows and downloads there podcasts.
                                  There are no adverts on radio 1 aswell which I like you just have music and great dj’s to listen to throughout the day and night.
