There's not many people who'll be upset by the latest bunch of Rajar figures. Talk Sport have overtaken Virgin to become the nation's second-most listened to commercial station, but Virgin have managed to add some listeners to their audience so they're not too upset. The inexorable rise of Terry Wogan continues; he's increased the biggest audience in UK radio a little further; Radio One nudged up slightly to 9.96 million listeners overall, and 7, 6Music and 1Xtra have all shown increases - 7 has become the first digital-only network to break through the half-million listeners mark.

In the overcrowded London market, Heart, Capital and Magic continue their dainty dance, this time round with Heart edging to the top of a largely undifferentiated pile. They might be less delighted at Heart to discover that Jono Coleman, the breakfast host they canned in favour of Jamie Theakston, had delivered a 28% rise in listeners during his last period in charge of the shift.
