    Default Would you listen to/support a family friendly radio station???

    I am right behind this as I think our radio is full of such rubbish. yes there is a christian based station but we don't all want the religion side of things. What do we all think?

    Nah, I like Triple J.

    I'm not massively into the whole 'family friendly' concept really. I find that even at the age of 3, the news and some of the topics of discussion on the radio have produced excellent opportunities for 'teachable moments' with DS, and these topics would certainly not be on a 'family friendly' station.

    Well I only listen to gospel, blues and soul programs and the like on public radio so I don't think it's applicable to me I'm not terribly fond of either pop or more 'alternative' modern music as 99% of it is derivative rubbish. But I think a station such as you're describing would have such a tiny audience I don't think it would be worth doing. I can't imagine there would be a huge number of people who would be interested.

    Nah, DD and I like our dance music too much 😄

    But DD does listen to 89.9 at night which seems to be Christian radio and have to say some of the topics they discuss can be scary for little ears, for example children being kidnapped from their beds at night 😳

    Not really my sort of thing sorry. But a great idea for those who are after that type of radio station.

    Nah, not my thing. We don't listen to commercial radio anyway, we listen to triple J. Really the only non-child-appropriate stuff is the swearing, but they give warnings so you can turn it down if you don't want the kids to hear it.

    Yeah, there are stations that are quite clean and I would call them family friendly, and then there are stations that are *family values* which I find a bit preachy and too squeaky clean.
