Talk radio stations

Found 15th Mar 2008
Does anyone know of any good talk radio stations? Something from the UK preferably with varied and random topics that people just discuss! I could be an internet radio station too since I've gone and got some fancy streaming thing now! I just fancy listening to some stuff during the days as I work. Any ideas???

Ooh ok. I thought they were all about classical music! Excuse my ignornace! I shall check them out....

citytalk.fm is a new radiostation based in liverpool, I like it. it's not just topics about Liverpool, although some are, but it's really good

Listen to LBC on dab or sky and internet its the best around lbc.co.uk/def…asp

Talksport is good, programs vary from talk shows (not sport topics) like james whale and george galloway and sports programs, I listen after 10pm which is mainly talkshows. Its on the net and on MW 1053.

I certainly won't be tuning in for the sports shows but will defo tune in for the 'normal' discussions!

talkSPORT is always worth a listen. id say james whale from 10pm sunday to thursday is best. also mike mendoza thru the night friday to sunday is good as well. he has a guy on called the gadget detective and thats always worth a listen. Dont forget 5live as well.

It sounds like this could be quite a good station, once I've sussed out when the good shows are on then it could become a favourite!....

Talk107 is quite good but it's really aimed more for Edinburgh , Fife and the Lothians .

Ok thanks well I'll check it out anyway, I'm sure they will chat about something interesting!

Definately talk sport. Really good especially James Whale. In the day I generally listen to my local bbc station which for me is WM.

If I can stay up long enough then I will!!

Talksport fan too, listen to Jon Gaunt in the morning who talks about everything.
Mike Parry and Andy Townsend are good but usually about sport.

Tommy Boyd is excellent if you can get Southern Counties.

I was listening to this talksport station for a bit last night...it was some show with that george galloway bloke. At one point he started having a go at some dude who phoned up, got very heated almost! I thought it was really funny! Thats what I wanna hear lol. I'm going to be listening more often now!!!

I have to admit I don't know the first thing about politics, or anything to do with the bloke...but I got the impression he is a bit of a 'trouble maker'???
