One of the radio stations that I listen to while driving to work actually booted the two morning hosts and decided to play more music! Nice! I wish they all would do the same, does anyone really listen to them anyway?

Nope. I spend more time flipping stations trying to find music. So, I just settle for NPR. I figure if I am going to listen to someone talking, might as well be world news.

Nope, I like to listen to some chit chat in the morning, but only if it's good. I'll listen to Bob and Tom usually while getting ready. Our local guys are usually short on talk and play too much music, and most stations around here is crap. I can get Traverse City or GR somewhat, but I like to hear news and jokes in the morning.

We have one radio station that has some very good music, but all of the DJs sux. Especially CC Singer. What a ham! I can't stand his voice and his jokes are vomitous.

There is almost nothing I find more annoying than morning radio hosts. Is it so hard to play some effing music? I work midnights, so by the end of shift I am cranky anyway, and then listening to their irritating banter makes me very, very angry. As someone else said, I'll usually just switch to NPR. Since music is not an option, at least I can listen to news and stuff instead of 3 hours of fart and/or boob jokes.

You're making us look bad. Try this:

LOL! I see how my net words can be misconstrued. I tend to listen to NPR anyway, but when I moved to Lubbock I found two classic country stations. I was really excited until I found the morning show to be more blahblah than music.

NPR is the best at keeping me informed and they play the best classical music too!

NPR and the local talk guys for me. Between the three stations, there is always a good topic going on.

Radio music suxsrs. Except the new station in Milwaukee 88.9 which is awesome.

Over the last 3 years I have become a huge fan of Opie and Anthony. Jim norton is also on and I just love their style. Any XM'ers out there check them out on 202.

We have a pretty decent station that doesn't EVER have DJ's on air! I love it!

A couple other stations have a regular music format in the mornings, which I love. There were a few DJ's I loved, one morning team and an afternoon guy who I listened to almost every day, but then they got laid off. I think the good talent was too expensive?
