Coming from someone who has to be subjected to Norfolk radio, trust me Alan Partridge would be an improvement.

C'mon now. It's not all bad.

Where I live in Tennessee most of the radio stations we pick up come from Memphis and Jackson, Jackson in particular has a great jazz station.

The worst for me is classic rock radio, not because of the music (that would go to adult contemporary) though the format nowadays is pretty much just "Foreigner, Bob Seger, Skynyrd, repeat" but because of the DJs.

Airheaded neo-conservative southern boys making stupid and sometimes racist political remarks and answering calls from their likeminded middle aged listeners, not realising the irony in having just played Neil Young and The Clash.

In the UK you don't get local stations dedicated to one type of music. No matter where you go in the country you get the same thing. Rubbish locals news items broken up by classic rock / 80s pop. They're ALL the same.

You do know they're all run off the same company right?

Probably Richard Littlejohn & Jeremy Clarkeson

But nobody really takes them seriously.
