London Rajar - Q3/2010

As usual, here are my charts showing how each of the main commercial stations in the capital are performing throughout the day.

This quarter London's Magic 105.4 is the clear winner and now as more listeners in London than BBC Radio 2.

In some ways the biggest surprise, for me anyway, has been the drop in LBC's dominance of late-night and overnights, which has usually been very evident in previous quarters.  Although showing a slight drop since last quarter the station itself is up year-on-year, with Nick Ferrari at Breakfast and Steve Allen's idiosyncratic "bitchfest" (Weekdays 0500-0700 and Sundays 0700-1000) continuing to do well.

Also, Kiss Breakfast has dropped since getting a 'Gold Star' for a great performance last time.

Absolute Radio makes a good showing this quarter - especially pulling ahead of Capital during weekday daytimes and a strong performance on Saturday mornings by Frank Skinner.

The previous quarter's charts can be seen here.
