Originally standing for London Broadcasting Corporation (but now standing for "London's Biggest Conversation"), LBC has been going for almost 40 years and is London's biggest talk radio network. It has call-in shows and entertainment shows, as well as a dedicated news station (LBC News, 1152 AM).
LBC has the distinction of being the oldest legal commercial radio station in the UK (not counting the Isle of Man), launching in October 1973 -- eight days before CapitalRadio.
* Nick Ferrari, who is the closest thing Britain has to a ShockJock. Though he's not nearly as controversial as most, he ''did'' get a rap from Ofcom over immigration. Ferrari is considerably right-wing, and had a spat with Mayor Ken Livingstone for a while (which seems to have been resolved, since "Red Ken" comes on Ferrari's show every so often and is now a host on the station). Does the weekday morning slot.
* Clive Bull, who originally started from 10:00 PM to 1:00 AM. Nowadays he only works on Sundays from 7:00PM to 10:00PM though he does sometimes fill in for absent hosts when the occasion arises.
* Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London. He hosts the 10AM to noon slot on weekends with Dave Meller.
* Nick Abbot, hosts the 10PM to 1AM slot on weekends. He's notable for using movie soundbytes (such as "[[FullMetalJacket Me love you long time!"]]) and StockSoundEffects for comic relief, uses VaderBreath when referring to GordonBrown and refers to TonyBlair as "Tony Blergh" out of disdain.
The station can be picked up online, across the United Kingdom via satellite and cable. If you live in the Southeast of England, turn your radio to 97.3 FM.
