Getting the right drive time tunes can make or break a day. If you are running courier jobs, here are five great radio stations to get your day started maxisys elite scan tool.
The radio is a driver's best friend - it provides news, some tunes to keep you entertained, and lets you know about a snarl up on the M25 before you end up stuck in traffic for hours on end. This is especially true for couriers - when you've got a long day of courier jobs ahead of you, you want to make sure you've got some good tunes playing.
Drive time doesn't really mean the same thing to couriers as it does to most people - after all, for a courier all day is drive time. But the way you start can put you in a good or bad mood for the rest of the day. Here are five drive time shows to consider listening to when you first get in your vehicle.
Radio 1 - For light entertainment
If you're looking for something fun and entertaining to start your day, then Radio 1 is the place for you. Chris Moyles, who hosts from 6.30am to 10am, is someone that people either like or loathe, but if you like his style, his mixture of music, discussion and comedy will be the ideal thing to listen to as you start the first of your courier jobs of the day Autel MaxiSys MS908.
Classic FM - For relaxation
Sometimes, you just know a day is going to stress you out, and if you've got some unpleasant courier jobs lined up, tune into Classic FM in the morning to try and maintain your levels of calm. For some people, of course, classical music is about as calming as listening to nails down a blackboard, but if listening to Schubert and Mozart makes you mellow, listening to some popular classics might be just the ticket if you've got a long day ahead.
Radio 4 - For self improvement
If you are running courier jobs and spending a lot of time in your car or van, perhaps you would like do something a little more constructive than listening to the latest tunes or hearing Chris Moyles crack jokes. If so, then Radio 4 may provide the kind of stimulation that you are after. From radio plays to political debates and cultural documentaries, there's plenty to get your teeth into. The Today show that plays in the morning provides a good roundup of news, sport, weather and the famous Thought of the Day.
Resonance FM - For something different
Sometimes you may feel the need for something strange to kick off your day. Plenty of radio stations can get pretty wacky late at night - few manage to maintain this level of surrealness throughout an entire day, let alone at drive time. Resolutely non-commercial radio station Resonance FM (only available in London) provides its Nightloop show from 1 in the morning to 12 noon, playing highlights and archive music from its bizarre back catalogue. Expect the unexpected; whether it is four hours of birdsong, a talk by a Slovenian cultural theorist, or the latest ear-bleeding techno music, Resonance FM is guaranteed to give you something utterly unpredictable every time you tune in.
