for me it's NPR's Daniel Schorr. sure, he's had a long and respected career, but time hasn't been good to his voice. he sounds like an old, tired, wheezy Droopy the Dog and I have to turn the radio off when he comes on

I also can't stand listening to people who have excessive mouth noise . . . like I can hear their tongue and cheeks moving around like somebody is stirring a bowl of jello . . . just plain icky!
LMAO!!! As soon as I saw the thread title, the first person I thought of was Daniel Schorr.

And I totally agree with you about the mouth noise.

Locally, we have a woman who is the local host of "All Things Considered", and I sometimes literally have to change the station if she's on more than a couple seconds: Dolores Handy. Not only is her voice annoyingly nasal, but she has a consistently annoying way of pronouncing certain words (the program "On Point" is pronounced "On Po-unt"), but she just mangles about a third of whatever it is she's supposed to be reading. Makes me NUTS!

Chris Evans
I like Chris Evans. He's found his niche once again, if you ask me.

My hate list still consists of Nicky Campbell, Alan Carr (but not Paul O'Grady), and The Emperor Wogan (but not Ken Bruce).

Also agreed with Steve Wright In The Afternoon™, Sara Cox, and Chris Moyles.

Oh, and also Wossy.

Re: any "Radio Voices" you can't stand to listen to?

Everyone on the Chris Moyles show. It's part of the reason I don't listen to radio anymore.

I also hate my own - probably a self loathing thing, but unless I put on my promo voice, I sounds like a git.

It's like listening to Gilbert Gottfried suck-off a goat.

Re: any "Radio Voices" you can't stand to listen to?

Even though I know Diane Rehm's voice is caused by various health problems, I find her very difficult to listen to. She sounds like she's about to drop dead, which is...well, kind of distracting. I don't think I'd have a problem listening to a regular person in real life with a similar problem, but radio magnifies everything, and I do find her very hard to listen to. She is a great interviewer, though, and I admire NPR for sticking with her, so I hope she continues to improve.

But Diane Rehms is INfinitely better than...Paul...Harvey. Who is no longer with us, but whose "distinctive" voice and delivery is so "distinctive" that I fear I'll still be able to hear it until the day I die. And I don't want to, I don't want to, I don't want to!

Jeremy Vine on Radio 2. Everything sounds like a confrontation with him. I loathe listening to him.
Ha! I was going to post Jeremy Vine, although for different reasons. I can't stand his oily, smarmy "and how did that make you feel?" when he's trying to build up a sympathy angle in the human-interest stories. And when he's doing his pre-show links with Ken Bruce (who I do like), he always has an intensely smug "I'm so much better and smarter than you" attitude, which he tries to hide behind a fake laugh when Ken takes the piss out of him.

Ken Bruce is the man. Jeremy Vine to me sounds like he wants to be the next Michael Buerk.

Actually, thinking about it, Jeremy Vine always comes across as wishing he didn't have to waste time playing any of this tedious "music" so that he could spend two hours listening solely to the sound of his own voice.

They should get his brother Tim instead. At least he'd make a few jokes to pass the time.

Russ Parr in the Morning. He sounds like he has a mouth full of doo. I hate his voice.
