I spend a lot of time listening to the radio, particularly in my car. But is it just me that finds the radio really annoying sometimes? It's impossible to know which station to listen to. I'm definitely very much over Radio 1- I just find it incredibly annoying, and haven't really listened to it at all since I started at university and became an old old lady. Commercial stations have too many adverts. Radio 2 is a reasonably safe bet, for the most part- but then sometimes, there's a little too much Cher and David Essex, and not quite enough of the music I actually like. And as lovely as Classic FM is- they don't play nearly enough Chopin or Debussy for my liking.
I know I'm probably a bit late to the party on this one, but this week I have totally and completely fallen in love with London Grammar, and in particular, Strong. It's one of those songs I haven't been able to get out of my head for days, and find myself singing out of the blue when I'm in the car and the radio is annoying me. Thank goodness for phones that can blast music out of them in situations other than on the bus by annoying teens.
On that, a friend of mine had an incredibly awkward incident on a train a few weeks ago when she didn't realise her headphones weren't plugged in, and blasted several Miley Cyrus tracks out to the entire carriage before she worked out why people were glaring at her. Oops.
PS- if you now have On The Radio stuck in your head, me too!!
