      I agree. It’s wonderful that a woman has been given the role of providing the voice of a woman.

    These people who basically say things like your favourite music or your relaxing choice or whatever (and you often hear them between every piece of music or before and after every ad break) are usually a real turn-off for me be they male or female.I don’t need to be told what I’m listening to loads of times an hour.I have tuned away from stations many times due to repetitive phrases delivered in irritating tones which are sometimes more annoying than the adverts.

    Rajar works on recall Pat which is why radio stations want to remind people what they’re listening to fairly frequently. If 3 second stop-downs are such an annoyance to you get your minidisc/ walkman back out of the attic. Alternatively stop whining about a service you’re being provided for free.
