Smooth is often the first of the London stations to disappear when you drive along any of the motorways away from here. Around the northern parts of the M25 (by St Albans for instance) the signal is...

Smooth 102.2 did NOTHING but fail in London, Magic is amongst the top three stations in the Capital and without Mr Dene's help. He left Magic as he didn't get...

Sometimes have to change transport connections in Feltham <shudders>

Hounslow borough is a dive in general... but good for spotting planes. Happening Chiswick must feel cheated being in it!

But the majority of the foreign voices round here are Eastern European, inside the EU. Another one of Blair's messes :mad:

I'd add Hanwell, West Ealing and Ealing Broadway to that list.

Uxbridge is a pretty dreary, up-its-own arse sort of place too.

You'd be surprised at how many people in Harrow use the Hemel relay and also in other parts of north-west London screened by hills or tall buildings from Crystal Palace.

Erm, if I had a rich boyfriend, I'd move to most of those tomorrow :rolleyes:
