Never mind the best...which ones are the worst?

I vote for Juice FM in Liverpool, a dreadful radio station that is never happy unless its playing a dance song & encouraging youngsters to get drunk etc...

Let's see if we can get through this thread without anyone else mentioning Heart.

But no, one of something is good. Lots of something is bad.

Welcome to the DigitalSpy mentality.

Doesn't this depend on what you mean by worst?

It could mean the station which fails to stick to its format; which is technically incompetent; has unlistenable amateur presenters etc etc.

Interesting that people seem to take it to mean: Which UK station is least to your taste?

What i mean by the worst stations is in terms of what its broadcasting message is to the public etc...
For example...Liverpools Juice FM just enourages youngsters to go out and get p*ssed all the time

The culture of Liverpool aside, its a rare thing to hear a radio station which is prepared to play Dance and House as much as Juice FM does, especially with the progs from the likes of Anton Powers and Ian Longo.

I listen to Juice and I haven't been in a pub or club for about 7 years.

Juice does it all the time..weather it be breakfast show or middle of the working day
Its like they cant accept that there are other aspects to life than just nightclubs and scouse house music

New Years Resolution must not post about Heart!

If we both do it we can give each other moral support!

They don't need to encourage youngsters to go and get p*ssed - some do it anyway!

No - I'm not getting a penny from it!

Should be one of the best music stations in the UK by the end of 2010 once I've finished with it

Just remember every post you make about Heart makes your Heart beat one less time.

Death from a broken heart is never a good thing.

It's not too late!

"More Music Variety Kills."

Just remember that. Make it the first thing you say when you awake every day. Write it down if it helps. Put it on the fridge.
