What makes a good radio show? ie, what features do you like to hear.

Also what makes a good competition on a show? and not just an easy one.

    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)

    What makes good radio??? A station that ISN'T known as 'Heart', that's what.

    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.
