    NEEDED: YOUR OPINIONS ON THESE TwO THINGS

    Pirate radio

    Commercial radio

    What do you expect from each? Not really in terms of the music they play...more like what kinda feel does each one have?

    (this is for my english coursework, all help appreciated THAANKKK YOUUUUU )

    well from pirate i expect upfront new underground tunes not too gooder host usually but its more personal than commercial if ya phone you talk to the dj and mc and interact directly with the ppl doing the show

    from commercial you expect just the big tunes nothing brand new really jus the stuff thats blowing up on the pirates you get all that advertising and that breaking it making sound more like a tv show than a radio show and the dj peforming more general as he will usually have to cater for more array of ppl

    No pirates here.

    Commercial Radio isn't my cup of t really. Most of the moderators have terrible humour & achieve celebrity status for being nothing! At least that's the way here. They don't do anything but speak, the boring commercial chart music on their shows is even chosen by a supervisor.

    In the UK you at least have proper shows of the DREEM TEEM, GROOVERIDER even HLC is on your official BBC1 radio...! Never would they do stuff like that here

    On Pirate I expect loads of 20 second pauses while the DJ wakes up... stoned of course.

    Oh yeh, and loads of mistakes, but the music makes up for it.

    Commercial - professional, 24/7 radio wiv DJs tryin to be funny (cept Chris Moyles, Dreem Teem, etc).

    Commercial = annoying adverts every 3 songs. Except radio 1, but they have 10 minutes of pointless talk between every song.

    Pirate = the advert break between sets.

    commercial is all about the money u see.

    Im answering these rite arent I? whens your coursework in for jO?

    there's one commercial station here in the south Merc doing some nice shows i.e. Thursday Hip Hop hosted by the 0711 stable, Wednesday Drum'n' Bass presented by area DJs, House etc.

    you could also catch the shows via Internet: www.cosmium.net

    Its in for tomorrow, I've had it back to redo before the final deadline which is tomorrow and as usual I've left it til the last minute!!

    Writin transcripts from DJs on capital FM is the driest thing in the world. I don't mind doing them for pirate stations coz its usually jokes when its all written down lol

    Pirate radio is all about new fresh stuff... what the streets want to hear. Not like what your mum or dad listen to as they cruise along in the morning through rush hour traffic.

    I know people who do pirate and they say they do it to keep in touch with the people. When your about to go out, you don't stick on some crap when ur getting ready... you put on something you want to hear and something that you'll probably actually be into. Thats why radio one specialises in dance between 7 and 9 so that they get an audience from the masses who like dance.(even though their doing it for the money, their providing a SERVICE)

    So all in all, pirates do it because of love and dedication for music and because theey want to provide a service to the people, even though the risks are high.

    Pirate radio- underground tunes, urban/rave music, DJs with vinyl decks not cd ones, MCs, mobile numbers to call/text, everyone having a laugh

    Commercial- adverts every other song, boring DJs talking absolute crap, weather reports, traffic reports, $$$$ songs that anoy the hell out of me.
