Not sure it's the first time a question like this one has been asked I didn't include centreforce because it not ment to be a community station I was asking about 2 ex pirate gone legal as for a rubbish subject surely you could not have got a worse one than some of the outer London Essex pirate posters sagging eachother off

I am really surprised about that are you not from East London meaning rinse would be much closer to you and 1068 is not a bad frequency and I get it okay in Windsor Great Park

The answer is NEITHER - they're both crap!

I thought you said a few months ago rinse had improved? I took someone in my car tonight and insisted I let her listen to kiss and that is bad it's got even more commercial than before then she changed the dial to select and that was not much better a real wana sound legal or what? I won't be tuning in to select again in a hurry

Rinse at the moment, but Flex may get better as it becomes more established legally, signal is certainly better.
I think the comparison is good; both community and targeting in the main the same sort of chav market: Grime & UKG
On the Select, if they sound like wet Heart presenters I get your point.. I do not listen as too techy. There's merit in presenting a professional show however, as opposed to constant shouts, erratic mic overs, poor production and geezer style presenting. Pirates or former ones legal have gone backwards in this respect with the exception of a few shows here and there..

Select does sound professional but it's not that I don't like about it it's the music and that's what makes the sound like legal enoying because it's always the same teccy sound never the good underground stuff that hardly gets played anywhere now

Only lock into Rinse for Uncle Dugs. Less old skool hardcore on Flex since it went legal.

Flex plays reggae now I don't remember any when they were a pirate and sometimes on rinse they have good house mixes that when I tune in to them

Flex has a much better signal than rinse. But in terms of content both are practically the same, although i would say that rinse has more high profile djs than flex.
