INTELLIGENT RADIO : One of my favourite things. I do not know why it's much better than TV. While TV suffers integrity problems & often lies, radio seems to have people with a higher level of integrity. Newspapers have to push the agenda of their owners & advertisers, TV stations have to chase advertising & viewing figures, but it's easier on radio people to find people who want to tell the truth or entertain from the heart.I guess the people who want to make money all go into TV. .

- BBC Radio 1 and FiveLive used to be good, but have chosen to go for a downmarket formula to chase listening figures. Now they are Radio Slag & Radio Daily Mail, buying expensive DJs high-commission agents sell them.
- You can do other things whilst listening the radio
- There are many stations without the distraction of adverts

BBC Send the Celebs off to Commercial

Radio secrets

- BBC's News is not as good as thes rest of the BBC - BBC News is the best in the world, but it's still crap (insestious London Mainstream media) prefering arts journalists who toe a line over those qualified in science. Progs from outside this dept are much higher quality.

- Up all night with Rhod Sharp - One of the best programs ever, even though he's on in the middle of the night weekdays. I guess he doesn't have to pursue a popular agenda. Other presenters might be nice people, but they are not great presenters. Intelligent and a very international agenda so good perspective. ..... Features segments from across the world : Mon - Science News, Tue - 3:35am Archaeology News, Fri - 2:20am Medical News, Thu 2-3am the Science Q & A Dr Karl Podcast, Dr Karl UAN on Facebook, online discussion ..He never mentions that he is actually broadcasting from his house in Massachusetts ... it seems like he is in London

- Sundays evenings on Radio Wales Mousemat OR Science Cafe
