I love radio. I love NPR. I have certain morning shows I listen to in the morning. What do you guys listen to? What shows do you hate? love?

NPR for the morning and afternoon commutes, and that's about it.

Most people don't. I'm going to change the title of this thread to encompass podcasts as well.

I've been convinced for some years now that NPR is a government funded experiment on seeing whether presenting news/issues in soothing tones can keep the masses from getting angry. As such, I completely avoid it.

There's also never been an FM "shock jock" type worth listening to. The few times friends have asked "did you hear what *stupid female* and *male lap dog with stupid name* said this morning," I've had to resort to fisticuffs.

When I was downrange, I would sometimes catch the Dr. Laura show. I was never necessarily impressed with her views - hell, I couldn't care less what she thought - but I loved the way people would call up thinking that their moronic view of a situation would somehow garner her support.

Dumb people are a great source of amusement.

NPR is great, but I also like ESPN radio, nationwide.

WBCN in Beantown, and KBCO & KTCL in the Denver area.

I pick up Federal radio from DC during my commute back to CT, often. Been nice listening to the Capitals game calls all year.

I never liked any of the local Hartford stations, am or fm.

I like Dr. Laura's show for much of the same reasons. I haven't listened to her in years though.

The lady is definitely a hypocrite. Don't have kids if you can't stay home yet I am my son's mom and am never home because I'm out doing my show and promoting my books. :roll:

I listen to 97.3 KIRO FM and really haven't a clue why at times. During the drive home, I've actually yelled at my radio "Shut the f*** up" when Don of the Ron & Don just keeps droning on and on. I need to get a life.

She's funny, but the endless berating gets tiresome after a few listens.

On the other hand, Michael Savage is constantly hysterical. Especially how he slips in plugs for his book every hour.

If I listen to the radio, it's either NPR or K-USC (Classical station).

One podcast I always listen to is The Bugle which features the Daily Show's John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman.

Can't you get radio 4? I do the house cleaning to the Archers, Wimmins Hour and wake up to James Naughty. A bit of Melvyn, then you get the afternoon play and assorted quizzes/games, plus Francine Stock doing the Thursday film/theatre/book review culture thing.

Quite possibly because I'm a sad wanker, before JJ steps in. :)

You're welcome. I'm glad you're enjoying it. At first I was really bummed out when his radio show ended (the station changed formats). But, I'm loving his new podcast, and the shorter length (1 hr instead of a full morning radio show) has allowed me time to explore some other podcasts I've been meaning to check out.
You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

The length of his old show kept me from getting into it. i just didn't want to commit that much time. The new 1 hour format is perfect and leaves me wanting more. The latest show (the one with Joe Rogan) has inspired me to try to build my own sensory deprivation tank.

I think Nunis and ze both mentioned Filmspotting plenty of times around here, but it wasn't until after I finally got an iPod and a college friend suggested it that I started listening. I went back and caught up with every episode of it.

Also listen to Smodcast - Kevin Smith & Kevin Mosier's "weekly" podcast.

I subscribe to CollegHumor's videos, but rarely get to watch them (about 80 to catch up with)

I've stopped listening to radio, especially now that I have a 5 minute commute, although I used to really enjoy Preston & Steve on WMMR (previously Y100). They're a morning zoo show without the annoying zoo chatter--actually pretty funny, and if I had 3 hours a day I'd probably still listen to their podcast.

If I forget my iPod and have to drive more than 5 minutes, I'll listen to Radio 104.5 out of Philly -- no djs, few commercials, pretty decent music.

I used to listen to Weekend Edition: Sunday for Will Shortz's quiz, but haven't in over a year--radio is just so... blah.
