Iain Dale and Andrew Pierce are very good....Talkradio in the morning for me.

Used to be much better when the presenters offered a counter-argument to callers, rather than give their own irrelevant opinions.

We discovered LBC about 1 year ago. Could no longer stand the Today program on Radio 4 after years of listening. Nick Ferrari is our favourite, he is informed, funny, polite but firm when contributors go off rail. HE IS THE BEST! as are all the o...

Great presenters, except James O'Brien? Are you joking? He is the reason I tune in! Plus Eddie Mair.

LBC was great when I first started listening to it about 15 years ago but the fun element is definitely not there any more. I listen to Nick Ferrari, Ian Dale, Clive Bull, Tom Swarbrick, Nigel Farage, Eddie Mair, Andrew Pierce and a bit of Jacob Ree...

Great station, like Andy Castle I agree that James O'Brien is a total bell--- and as soon as 10am arrives its over to Talk Radio with Mike Graham. Also Maajid Nawaz is up his own backside!!
Bob Duggan, 1 year ago
Dave o Brien is the reason for tuning in straight talking and will not suffer fools ….hats off to the great Steve Allen also , reinforced with Maajid , Nick and Sheila makes this my go to station .....

Enjoyed James O’Brien on Brexit, however on the Covid fiasco he has become unlistenable.

I started listening to LBC for Katie Hopkins.. then Nigel Farage... now it's got the BBC lefty crew on weekdays..(Fogarty and Mair).. and the appalling James O'Brien. So I went to Talk Radio....

I have been listening to LBC for many years now and it is certainly my favourite, however I have to turn off when James O'Brien comes on. It's not that his politics are different to mine (they are!!), it's his broadcasting style I can't stomach! That...

Listened to LBC since it started. Like many I have to turn off at 10am when it's James O Brien and switch to Talk radio..which means I now tend to stay there until Iain at 7. I like all evening shows.
John Galbraith, 1 year ago
3+ stars. Great station and great listening, but like the others in the comments I tend to switch over to Talk Radio when morons like O'Brian and some BLM-lovers/Trump-haters start their nonsense - but I always switch LBC back on because there's plen...
