Radio for grown ups that is how I would describe Radio 2 a radio station that has the ability to appeal to all ages whilst also tailoring some shows to specific interests.
Available on fm 88-91 as well as on television and of course on line.
05:00 Vanessa Feltz
06:30 Chris Evans Breakfast Show
09:30 Ken Bruce
12:00 Jeremy Vine
14:00 Steve Wright in the Afternoon
17:00 Drive time with Simon Mayo
Evening has Jamie Cullum, Jo Whiley, amongst others
Weekends are also different on Radio 2 which I think reflects that lives are different at the weekend Saturday from 8 am is the sound of the sixties before Graham Norton at 10am I have to be honest since Jonathon Ross has gone I try to avoid listening as Graham Norton irate's me beyond belief!
Afternoon sees me tune in again for the fantastic Tony Blackburn and Pick of the Pops its amazing how many songs are older than you think! Then you have Alan Carr which is silly and rather daft but suits Saturday night.
I have not listened to any other shows on a Saturday so cannot comment but on the odd occasion of listening later I am always happy.
Sunday is another excellent day kicked off with Aled Jones for me a very enjoyable show and for me very important as I am unable to attend church on Sunday Morning this is my religious time.
Following Aled Jones with sit down to Breakfast with Steve Wrights love songs which surely by now must be an national treasure That tends to be my listening although I do catch a bit of the wonderful Paul o' Grady who really doesn't mind poking fun at himself!
My favourites are the Breakfast show although I have yet to get in the breakfast club I am always driving at the time! I have however had a Big screen Belter and was very happy driving along to Bryan Adams and Everything I do wonderful day that was!
I am also a fan of Ken Bruce and his incredibly funny pop masters quiz does anyone really know the scoring?!!
Steve Wright's old Woman and factoids brilliant although does make me laugh when Hubby pretends to wow with some fact and we all have already heard it!
Drive time who doesn't look forward to hearing those confessions!
I used to turn off at Jeremy vine and find some mindless pop to listen to however I am addicted and will often be arguing in the car with myself I have yet to ring in but often makes my blood boil and a good bit of intellectual time
I thoroughly recommend Radio 2 it caters for those that wish to listen to modern music with some classics as well as having big shows my Husband loves listening to Big Band special and Music night personally I find that less appealing and my Brother-in-law loves listening to Terry Wogan on Sunday whilst getting Sunday Lunch done personally Wogan makes me want to slit my wrists but that's the beauty of Radio 2 we all like listening to it and yet are tastes are all different.
So what are you waiting for tune in and find your radio 2!
