I'm also DANGEROUSLY UNCOOL, everybody else at my work listens to Radio 1. Dreadful.I'm even more dangerously uncool in that I like metal... along with lots of other random tat.

Body Count - Cop Killer.




.....well, it depends what car I'm in.

The Mira has a fantastic tape deck, meaning I can rifle through my collection of "car driving" music for something suitably crap. Usually a load of Eastern-Bloc Italo Disco compilations. Or Foreigner. Or Michael Jackson. But to be honest I don't tend to have any music on whilst driving the Mira as the fruity 3 cylinder hum and turbo howl amuses me.

If I'm in the Charmant, I only have one frequency band and no tape deck to speak of, if I stay local I can get:

But if I go more than about 10 miles north or south, due to a crap Halfords aerial, I can then only get:

So if I come to meet you in the Charmant and I've had to come on the motorway, I'll be a bit flaky due to listening to the Punjabi Hit Squad for the duration.

However, the Galant has a fantastic radio, MW and LW! Aerial reception is amazing too, as it is done via the bootlid. Spent my last big journey listening to mad French music throughout. Bonkers!

I can only get Radio 4 on LW in the R30 - so, though I'm no fan of cricket, I've grown to love the commentary. That and 'Yesterday in Parliament', which LW listeners are treated to on the morning commute.Also means I get to catch 'Sorry I Haven't a Clue' and Count Arthur Strong in the evenings. Every cloud.

Often something Swedish or Norwegian... Bob Hund or Motorpsycho. No Means No or Blood Brothers when I have to hurry (almost never), and when I want to go slow Lambchop or Tindersticks.

Radio 2 mostly, just so I can shout abuse at 90% of those callers to Jeremy Vine.Archers obviously, and evenings can be a laugh on R4Coldplay gets a lot of time on the continental blastsHuggermugger by The September When (obscure pre-Aha Norwegian band) is excellent to chew away the milesOther than that, 5 seconds from each and every station on each and every FM1 FM2 MW LW (SW and VHF if I had it) in each and every region of the country to wherever we are going while wifey surfs for something she likes. And fails spectacularly until we are pulling into the destination.Also, Bong Bong... Recalculating... makes itself heard regularly as we drive through empty black or white spaces on the GPS display. Must update to v9.

My aerial snapped off, so the only stations I can get are Radios two and five. Which is fine, but for longer trips I've got one of those cassette adaptors for my iPod.

Never had you down as a 'TOG' MrP :lol: Radio 2 is certainly my choice, and I like most of the playlist.When not tuned into Radio 2, I listen to quite a variety of music, but mainly reggae, ska and jazz/funk. But as for a track to drive to, well an early Level 42 track 'Sandstorm' does it for me, with its fantastic bass line, its just perfect 8)

I drove the CRX from the south of France a few years ago, and all the French stations sounded the same. Maybe Frenchmen say the same of all the British commercial stations? Debt consolidation jingles?Mr B, you became a native for a while, what was your take on the FM output?

And what is Belgium all about? Brussells FM, Euro 2 etc. Endless adverts for "Bink Bonk Bank", and something called "Schnickl Schnackl". And a double helping of phlegm with every sentence. Worse than the Scousers for that.

TBH, I keep it switched off until Wogan has shut up. All "breakfast" radio is the devils work. However I will often be found shouting the answers at "popmaster" when it's time for a cup of tea and a slice.

I usually alternate between Radio 4 and Londons XFM, the only tape in my Mazda is by ZZtop. My ultimate driving songs for the open road are probably Don't stop by Journey and Take it on the run by Reo Speedwagon.

If I'm going on a drive on my own I often stick Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds in the cd player - the car is the only place I can have it loud enough!At the moment all I get to listen to is Robyn's 'With Every Heartbeat' because my 4 year old daughter knows all the words.

Most of the time its BBC 5 Live for me - prefer a bit of news and debate. Otherwise normally R2 or might just connect up my iPod.Unless of course i'm in the R4 which has no stereo, in which case I just listen for bits falling off.

Not sure if anyone knows but you can get a cassette thingy that has a wire that attaches to your Mp3 , CD walkman iPhone etc. I got mine from the pound shop!!! So in spite of the Lada's primitive cassette player I can still listen to mp3s!!

I very rarely listen to the radio, particularly in the estate which is still in the early stages of my ownership, so I can keep an ear attuned to any unusual mechanical noises. But I make sure that I listen to Radio 2 on Saturday mornings - Jonathan Ross followed by Reeves & Mortimer's House Arrest - superb.I don't own an iPod (my wife has one, but it's full of girly songs like 'Dancing Queen', 'Careless Whisper' etc) and only have tape players in both Peugeots, so I'm a bit limited as I only managed to find two cassettes from the 'old days' still in my possession - Combat Rock by The Clash and some Hall & Oates compilation. So it's mainly 'Rock The Casbah' if I'm in the mood for some driving music.
