AIBU to expect to be able to have radio 1 on in the morning while we have breakfast without having the kids hearing things like "can't be arsed" or "crap" both of which I wouldn't want my children repeating. Am I just a total prude? I realise that being the wrong side 30 I'm too old for radio 1 but still...

You're the wrong side of 16 to be listening to radio 1.

It's time to head over to Radio 2.....

I've been there since Moyles left R1

YABU to listen to Radio 1 in the morning full stop.

I caught five minutes of Grimshaw while in the newsagent one morning. Grim is right. What a twat grin

It is tricky, mind you I was listening to radio 4 this evening and "crap" etc was used on a programme. It can be hard to avoid these things!

Mmm as I suspected the world has moved on and left me with ken Bruce! Don't get me wrong I swear like a trooper but I thought there were rules about these things

I have listened to Radio2 and Radio4 for years. I don't really relate to radio1 anymore. I am 31

Yanbu. I love radio 1 but I don't like the swearing. We only have radio 1 on in the car so I usually turn it down inbetween songs.

I love radio 4 but it's a bit dreary first thing.

Meglet Thu 14-Nov-13 19:46:18

I have radio 4 for wake up and bedtime.

Radio 1? didn't realise it still had listeners.

bitemabum Thu 14-Nov-13 19:50:26

Bedtime is 4 all the way but the kids like abut of cheesy music to start the day, 2 has rubbish music and I can't bear adverts on the radio but maybe better than my dd arriving at school stating that she "can't be arsed"

Radio 6 is the answer.

I love radio 1 and I'm 52, I prefer the music to the other oldie stations but I agree some of the chatter is stupid. More music less chat please.

Radio 2 is fucking awful. Dreadful music and often dull DJ's - the ex Radio 1 bunch being notable exceptions.

It's no alternative for those of us being chased away from Radio 1.

I don't really mind the minor swear words. I Think of them more like lazy language really. DD is picking up a Brummie accent, I worry about that far more!

Yama Thu 14-Nov-13 20:33:05

Yes, Radio 6 is the answer.

I had to complain about Radio 4. Was picking DH up from station with both DDs in the car it was 6.30pm and their play included words like prick and bugger. Brushed off my complaint though hmm

NedZeppelin Thu 14-Nov-13 20:35:45

6music all the way. It's fab and for old fogeys who still like a decent tune

DoItTooJulia Thu 14-Nov-13 20:38:44

Nothing wrong with a brummie accent!

bitemabum Thu 14-Nov-13 20:39:32

Love radio 6 but sometimes find I'm not quite ready for it first thing. Really enjoy mark Radcliffe,and the other one who's name escapes me, in the afternoon. When did it become ok to say crap and arse and prick at any time of the day?

Think you are going over the top to be honest.

bitemabum Thu 14-Nov-13 20:41:46

And I love a brumbies accent by the way. Very warm accent I always thought.

bitemabum Thu 14-Nov-13 20:43:07

Sorry for spelling, on my phone, shit keyboard, fat fingers.

RedPencils Thu 14-Nov-13 20:43:47

I want the chat of Radio 2 with the music of Radio 1.
Alternatively a p45 for Grimshaw would suffice.

I like Classic FM. Better class of presenter... wink
