English radio in Spain

Do you prefer to listen to mainly music if so what style and genre, or do you prefer more talk and news, and specialty programs full of local information.

Hot FM More Music less chat

The reason we ask the questions above is that our market research has shown that the majority of listeners prefer English music only radio stations with of course the mandatory hourly news and we therefore follow that broadcast model. We have discovered that many English radio stations here in Spain provide programming based on what they believe listeners want as opposed to actually delivering what listeners want. Many radio stations here in Spain try to deliver a mix of programming that they believe will give them a broader listening base, where in reality this has been proven since the 60s to be a myth. That is why in the UK English radio is recognized as the best in the world, you have Radio1,2,3, with each of these stations producing specialist programming for a particular market sector, many English radio stations in Spain attempt to be radio 1,2,and 3 all on one station, this goes against all the rules of radio.
