What Radio Station Are You Listening To Today And What's On?

As a radio lover I'm always interested in new stations and new shows. So I'll kick off with a firm favourite.

Naim Internet Radio 320kpbs 

I love the mix on this station especially the classical selections that I'd never normally listen too.

Original Post

Yup 100% for Naim Radio,  & agree the classical plays interspersed with the pop, rock & jazz make for  a interesting listen .  However its Saturday & that means things to do.    Early(ish) start to watch F1,   then Today (news) on BBC R4 (steam radio)  then R2 to realise (yet again) I really don't like Dermot O'Leary.   Go to SA local web-radio & internet to get the lowdown on the big game today, Springboks v All Blacks, to sharpen up for the e-mail's I usually get after a Springboks game - I fear its gonna be tears today.   Then over to Radio Paradise, my usual Sat morning listen, in between domestic duties,  I expect I'll be on that until Paul Gambaccini at 13:00.

Radio Swiss Jazz is a favourite of mine, sounds wonderful although only 128k. Radio Paradise too obviously along with Pure Jazz Radio NYC and Swiss station 1.fm Lounge stream. I also have Linn Jazz and Naim preset on my Favourites too along with RTÉ Lyric Fm. It’s good fun browsing around vtuner and checking out reggae stations in Kingstown or whatever! 

'Cos it's the weekend, Classic FM. I'll flit to Linn classics probably and Angel Radio later. Week days it's BBC Radio Solent first for local news, weather and travel news. Then Angel Radio if the music's to our taste. Lunchtime may be Radio 4.

Today on R4. At about 30 seconds to nine, they played a clip made by a sound designer from the Imperial War Museum recreating the moment the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War. Then there was a snippet of birdsong. Then, imo, they crashed the pips. I'd have liked to have seen a bigger pause for reflection.

Worth hearing though.

R3. Mix Tape, with dinner in the oven and a glass of cheering red.

Not sure this thread is getting great reception.

Thanks Christopher for keeping this thread of mine alive and kicking I do find it surprising that it wasn't a more popular subject I suppse it refelectos hw little people use the radio as a 'serious' source.

Thanks Bob. Seems there may be a bit of disconnect between those who say their NAT is their best source, and those who can be bothered to write about what's grabbing them on it 

Anyway, the reading of Middle England on R4 just after midday had me roaring. Especially the bit where one of the characters lays out his 5,000 page novel on a pub table and invites comments.

Today prog (on R4) from about 8.15. Sad about Bush Snr. But he had a long life and quite a family life according to John Major speaking about their friendship. I felt sentimental momentarily. Then there was a bit of Brexit with Sam Gymiah (sp?), then Frank Bruno talking to Gary about big things like mental health as well as tonight's heavyweight contest. And also still with that ridiculous trademark laugh. Know what I mean 'Arry.

Now Saturday Live.
