    Good presenting skillz
    No MC's hogging up the show
    Nice mixture Of UK G beats
    Not too many rewinds
    Tune ID's ALL the tyme (that annoy's me a lot when some DJ's don't say the names of tracks that u really like - going on like it's some exculsive flex when it isn't !!)
    NO droppin tracks !!
    Not too much cutting up of the track or fast mixing (it's a radio show - not a race LOL)

    not too much mindless banter
    fun competitions
    tune ids
    varying selection of tunes (unless it's a special hour or somethin)
    no mixing out too fast!!!

    I think it depends on your audience really. If they are listening for pure entertainment and relaxation purposes then I think a show that interacts with listeners, has a casual and joke like attiude is good. However if its a more critical or specialised show then perhaps more reveiws, interviews and news etc is more appropriate.
