Reviews about radio

  • Brent Cox
    I recently chose to listen to 98.1 during my 11:00 pm to 7:00 am work shift. For the past 10 years I was tuning in to 96.3 and 91.1 and recently. got fed up wth constant piano recital type recordings on both these stations.The most listened -to radio station at home is. 92.1 (Branford?) I believe for an excellent variety of popular/classic music. Toronto is in desperate need of a radio station similar. Piano key tickling began to drive me crazy!

    I like listen that radio, especially at Christmas time. enjoying the Christmas Music. But sometimes the songs are repeated too often and get boring.
