It has since become London's best talk radio station providing a fun platform which accompanies Londoners through their daily life via great and interesting conversations discussing all the latest topics and debates that interest us all. Some conversations you'll only hear on LBC.!

LBC is an entertaining, engrossing, intelligent and engaging two-way conversation between the presenters and the listeners covering the thoughts and topics that Londoners are really passionate about.
LBC is very Informative with Up-To Date Traffic and Weather Reports to help Londoner's get around more easily and to keep Londoner's prepared for the great British ever-changing weather.
A few of the regular callers to the show have become just as famous as some of the presenters such as Barry from Watford, Lynny and Egor. You never know whose going to call in next. I love listening to the banter between a caller and presenter. At times, conversions can be extremely funny and you will hear very passionate debates about every subject you could, and couldn't think of.
Celebrity Guests to LBC include former and current politicians and mayors who will answer any questions the listeners have Famous singers and actors have also been known to drop by.
