I've just bought a house and am currently spending my days scrubbing walls while listening to BBC Radio 4, and I'm interested to know what kind of radio stations other countries have.
I'm in the UK where we have the BBC Radio stations:
Radio 1 - current pop music, mostly aimed at the 16-24 market, with certain DJs having a particular music genre (e.g. dance music, hip hop)
Radio 2 - pop music and chat, 24+ (I'm guessing these age ranges by the way) - everything from 50s music onwards
Radio 3 - classical (considered to be quite highbrow)
Radio 4 - speech - news, news analysis, radio plays, documentaries, arts & culture etc.. my favourite station - this weekend I listened to a programme on Vanilla, a radio play about Thomas Payne, poetry in prisons, and all sorts of other interesting things. Also has the 'Today' programme, always satisfying to hear politicians squirm under interrogation
Radio 5 - talk and sport
Then there are the digital radio stations, which are a bit more niche in content - I haven't really explored them though.
Each county/city also has it's own local BBC station, and then there are commercial (i.e. with adverts) radio stations which play pop music (can be local or national), and Classic FM, which is classical music, but a bit more 'popular classic' if that makes sense.
We don't have any political radio stations (or at least I've not come across any) - the BBC have to give airspace to all parties so are supposedly balanced, whereas our print media has more political bias.
What does everyone else have?
