Radio 1. Is it really annoying or is it just me?

Found 12th Dec 2013
On the way to and from work i often listen to radio 1. I just find the presenters so annoying and cringey, to the point its like running fingernails down a blackboard.

Anyone else want to hang the DJ?

Chris Evans on Radio 2 in the morning is fantastic.

I stopped listening to Radio 1 after Moyles left. Nick Grimshaw is a complete tool, i tried to give him a chance but after an entire week of mostly One Direction in the morning it was either move station or drive my car into a tree.

It's annoying
All self obsessed tools if you ask me.
Grimshaw is awful, Scott Mills is the only one worth listening to R1 has gone down the pan the last few years. Greg James is just horrendous , a show full of prerecords and limited entertainment.
Spot the over 30s
Radio one went down hill years ago,either listen to radio two or local radio which is the beach or wait for it......radio Norwich AHA!!!!

Ahem... I'm 29 ;).
Totally agree above. Scott Mills is ace, the rest are pure ****
I never liked Radio 1 as a kid, let alone as a 40 yr old. Pretentious crap with vile music.

Could'nt Agree more, in fact I stopped listening too after 2 days, bring back Moylesy and the team.

Problem i had is Moyles could be annoying but they all had good banter and he wasn't trying to appeal to an audience in a direct way, Grimshaw is blatantly trying to appeal younger people, you know, the ones who typically don't own a car and commute every day to work.. So instead you're subjected to the most god awful music and puerile commentary, makes you want to brain him with a concrete block.

Aye, used to really enjoy Moyles on the morning drive and Mills on the drive home. Dave and Chappers were perfect for each.
i hate the way they all try to sound cool and make their voices sound seductive

As i'm rapidly turning 30 years, i won't deny my taste in things are changing... But crap is still crap, whatever age you are.
All that boom boom music!
No way, the wireless is for plays.
Must admit I gave up listening to it when I was about 30 and then realised I had become my mum

Jack fm, all the way
Grimshaw ruined mornings on radio 1. Radio 2 is much better.
I hate all the inane banter
It's Jeremy Vine on radio 2 that does my head in.
Anyone who stopped listening after Moyes left clearly doesn't like listening to music on a radio show.
Every time I tuned into that guys show all he was doing was talking! Was delighted when they got shot of him.
Dire station now. Was a dire station with Moyles too btw

I don't know why this popped in my head but...

Does Heart FM fit in anywhere? I seem to end up listening to that first thing in the morning.
I might sound old but radio one is awful now, everything from the music to the dj's... Whatever happened to having a decent day time show like mark and lard, brilliant show and they also played some great new music, introduced me to a lot of new indie bands.

I haven't listened to radio 1 since moyles left, radio 2 for me now, jeremy vines show is really good

Given up on radio, more of a podcast man now!
Yes let's never make a thread discussing opinions
Stop listening to it about 5 years ago, radio 2 for me. It'll be cardies and warm slippers for me soon
Yeah but he said he often listens to it but can't stand the presenters, why continue to listen to something you hate that much??

It's bad when you start listening to Smooth FM, I haven't even hit my thirties yet X)

Possibly, but if the dj's annoy you that much you would just find another station, its not like radio 1 plays some obscure music nobody else plays, it's as mainstream as it gets

Well I dunno as I never listen to it X) Nick Grimshaw is enough to deter me.

Still don't see a problem posting a thread about it though
Agreed on nick grimshaw, that's what finally stopped me listening ,
