Here in Lowestoft we have a station called The Beach and without doubt it is just awful.It seems to think that Whitney Houston is still in the charts has about 5 songs on the playlist and seems to think we are gormless idiots.I happen to think that local radio is an important part of any town's identity but im sticking to planet rock and radio 2

I have found myself flipping through local stations a lot more lately, and regularly listen to:

Chorley FM
BBC Radio Lancashire
Central FM
Real Radio

I enjoy them all in small doses, but you do hear the same stuff coming round and round - Radio Lancashire are especially fond of "Brown-Eyed Girl"

Creeps in ? It's called the playlist, and it flogs them to death.

We listen to the local Heart radio when we're in the car just knocking around where we live. It's not too bad. But when we go up north to visit family we have a real job finding something reasonable once we've got past, say, Doncaster. We set off early, and wouldn't have CE on under any circumstances so if ZB is standing in for KB we have to find an alternative for the whole of the trip.

On holiday in Great Yarmouth, I had the joy of hearing The Beach. Alanis Morrisette did more albums than just Jagged Little Pill, so why don't we hear more from them?

Their 'Laid Back Sunday' resembles a typical Radio Leeds Sunday playlist - Jeffrey Osborne's 'On The Wings Of Love'...gaaaah! Radio Leeds are also fond of Phil Collins's 'Two Hearts', but we never get anything from when Genesis were good.

BBC Radio Norfolk Saturday nights at 11pm till Sunday 1am The Late Paul Barnes Show. I can only get it on the web so usually listen live for the first hour then on iPlayer during the week.

He plays a great mix of jazz and big band music.
