I've just remembered a good reason for NOT listening to Smooth FM..
This is one of the songs on their limited playlist and they insist on playing it every time I turn the station on. ARGHHHHHH :cursing:. Never wanted to strangle anything responsible for birdsong before, but this is pushing my tolerance.
Just to share the agony.....

Aaargh!!! Probably in the late 90s, I had my alarm clock radio set to Melody FM, and noticed a slightly Groundhog Day-esque repetition of a very limited playlist as I woke each morning. Not "I got you Babe" so much as "Loving You", plus quite a lot of "Lady in Red" (Chris de Burgh), and the wonderfully weird "Angie Baby" by Helen Reddy.
That last one has freakish lyrics. Quite disturbing.

Looked recently and found it had rebranded to Magic FM, and a rather modernised playlist. Was surprised to find myself nostalgic for the earlire crap!

If anyone needs cheering up, I can recommend Stephen Bumfrey's 'One Foot in the Groove' show- weekdays between 2 and 4 on Radio Norfolk. He's naturally very funny, and a terrific broadcaster - proper radio anorak too. 873Khz am - gets out surprisingly well.
I rarely tear myself away from R. Caroline, but make an exception for this show.
 
2,4, 5 & 6 For me.

Though since moving back to the Shire I’ve been listening to BBC radio Devon a fair bit! Sad eh? But I like it. Especially Gordon Sparks in the morning, he can’t pronounce his “L”s, and he’s very enthusiastic.

Not sad IMO, a decent local radio station be it BBC or commercial (Global and Bauer please take note) is far more relevant to its local audience than any of the official nationals, or quasi nationals that Global and Bauer are inflicting .
