I was having this same conversation a while ago. Radio 2 is as bad as radio 1 now for inane drivel. I've switched to podcasts but may give virgin a go. Why can't we just have some chat about current affairs punctuated with decent music. Radio 4 is too dry. I feel like Goldilocks

Can't listen to Zoe Ball, full stop.
I'm older now so Radio 1 was dropped a long time ago, then Radio 2 took over until that went boring.
I've mostly given up listening to radio now. Even when in the car (where/when allowed before the Covid Police start their interrogations ) I have all my music on a USB stick. Can listen to music I like without the, usually inane , drivel.

Often I feel I can't find something to listen to on R2 ... I definitely have to be in the right frame of mind for the breakfast show. But then, like now, they play one of my favourite toons of all time and all is forgiven (Easy Money by Johnny Marr).

Doesn't help you for the mornings but greatest hits radio has Simon Mayo on drive time! Same concept as when on r2 with Matt the sports guy and confessions. Only started last week but it's made my year so far! 😂
Also lots of the older radio2 crew do various shoes through the week also.

Why is it only the female djs that come in for criticism. Why do these threads never start with ' isn't time Steve Wright retired ?. They always have Steve Wright on in the waiting room at the gynae clinic. Listening to Steve Wright in the afternoon made waiting for my cancer diagnosis so much better, SAID NO WOMEN EVER!!.
There are plenty of listening options if one dj doesn't suit you try another station ,listen to music , a podcast the list goes on.
