1 Read the description of the six radio stations. Match the questions (1-7) to the correct station (A-F). There is one extra heading.
A Radio 1: is the station for all other new music. There is pop music, alternative rock and some dance music. During the day, the DJs talk a lot and there are quizzes and competitions. The music isn't as important as the fun. In the evening, the music gets stranger and the DJ's get quieter. Sometimes you think that the DJ's who work during the day just want to be famous but the DJ's on the evening shows are people who really love music.
B Radio 2: is for older listeners who like pop and rock music. There is lots of music from the 1960's and 1970's but there is other music too like folk, country, blues and jazz. There are some documentaries about music, for example the story of the Summer of 1967, The Summer of Love.
C Radio 3: is the classical music station but they have started to play some World Music from Africa and other places. They also look at some of the more `intellectual' rock musicians like Brian Eno and David Byrne. If you don't know who they are, you can find out on Radio 3.
D Radio 4: says it is the home of intelligent speech. They have news, documentaries, comedy and quizzes. A lot of people like to listen to the Today programme in the mornings because it's much better than breakfast TV. The longest running soap opera in Britain is a radio show about a farming village called `The Archers'. It started in 1951 and there have been over 14,000 episodes since then.
E Radio 5: is also called Five Live. During the day, they have phone-in shows and news. In the evenings and at weekends, they have sport programmes, mainly football. Cricket is usually broadcast on Radio 4. And after the football matches they have a football phone-in show! It's often more entertaining than the matches!
F Radio 6: is a strange mixture of Radio 1 and 2. Some old rock music is too loud for Radio 2 but too old for Radio 1. so the BBC has started Radio 6 where you can hear this kind of music. Maybe Led Zeppelin live from 1972 or a history of Punk Rock.
Which station should you listen to if you want to hear:
1 loud but not new rock music? ________
3 music from different countries? ________
4 new rock music? ________
5 a documentary about old music? ________
6 someone talking about a football match they saw? ________
7 foreign language programmes ________
