I don't now if its my age but about fifteen years ago - at the tender age of thrity four - I switched from a commercial radio station to Radio two - and have never looked back! I just love the mixture of chat and good music - music both from the charts and from your childhood - fond tunes that bring back treasured memories.
I start the day with Sarah Kennedy - a wonderful warm mixture of "dawn patrolers" with her showtime tune at 6:45am and am now enjoying Chris Evans' new breakfast show. When I am home from work I enjoy the Jeremy Vines lunchtime phone in show where topical issues are discussed and, of course, Steve Wright in the afternoon is almost legendary.
To round the working day off I walk home to the new Simon Mayo drive time show which is bedding in well. Then again there are programmes from Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr - you are spoiled for choice
Radio two seems to offer a wide range of programmes to a wide range of ages and tastes. I grew up on radio one, now I am growing into middle age with radio two - long may they reign.
Summary: The listener is spolit for choice
