Other Stuff You're Listening to At the Moment

Thought I'd start a thread to talk about other stuff we're enjoying listening to away from Mills and Radio 1. Radio or podcasts or even albums really, anything you can put in your ears is good (except small toy soldiers and those massive hole earrings that go straight through, ew I can't stand them).

I'll go first: Chris Moyles obviously is back and I'm loving waking up to him every day (he's on holiday at the moment but back Monday).

In his absence I've heard Jon Holmes, who I've never listened to before but now I wish I'd listened to him back when he did XFM weekday breakfast instead of spending 3 years of waking up to Grimmy - his show is hilarious. He does a competition called Alive or Dead where callers can win meat, and made a great joke the other morning - "today on the show we're giving you the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Afghanistan for Christmas, all you have to do to win is be in Her Majesty's Armed Forces and you could be going to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban! It'll be the holiday of a lifetime - quite literally if you don't come back". Absolute class, genuinely funny and intelligent and great.

What's anybody else enjoying?

Hey OohErr,

I never ever get tired of your username. I've really enjoyed recent Chris Moyles Show, arguably this show is better than his Radio 1 show, as it's less messy and slicker. I've - and don't hate me for this - given local Bauer radio a try, and it's safe to say how shoddy it is. Olivia Jones can't present at all. This messy Bauer network where they have to give the station strapline "Number One for XYZ" is just, urrrrgh. Rather endure Gemma's morning show.

I've also enjoyed Kisstory recently, sort of like a 24/7 Nixtape. Very good to prance around to in the kitchen, and their adverts aren't particularly annoying either.

I've also given Saint FM a try recently. Matt Podd's show is excellent, but I think their website is off air for a bit at the moment.

NB - I'm not sure the joke about the Armed Forces is funny or clever, or intelligent for that matter to be honest. A matter of personal opinion, but if anything, it's offensive and degrading to the Army.

I agree with radioanorak....how is that in any way funny? Its just crass humour.

Because the Armed Forces are arguably the most brave individuals in society, and for some stupid w*nker in a warm toasty radio studio who gets paid too much for doing too little to belittle the countless deaths of these individuals, is inappropriate and potentially triggering to those who have lost relatives... Is this not obvious? It's absolutely crass, @harrysmyth is completely right.
