    The UK airwaves were definitely temporarily better without him.

    How do US users feel having been exposed to him for the first time?

    The man is too enthusiastic. About everything. There are bad songs in existence you know Zane, not everything is the best record in the world (since the last one you claimed was, presumably)

    I find him to be far better than the local "DJs" in my area.

    This. At least he plays new and different stuff. My butt rock station playing Seether or the classic rock station playing the same Kiss song for the umpteenth time gets old.

    It's in a promo stage lol. I'm sure that was being told by Iovine to him to remind people we have AC/DC on stream! Besides he played it once who cares?

    I think with Zane he picked what he wanted to play outwith the usual BBC playlists therefore did actually really like everything he played.

    I really went off him during Glastonbury coverage a few years ago when he totally spoke down about Beyonces performance and he came across really elitist

    He contributes little to nothing realistically. Nothing has changed while he was out of the picture

    How much do you hate Zane Lowe?

    Not as much as I hate Ebro.

    How much do I hate him? Not at all, in fact I like his show. I don't love it, but I like it.

    I like all three of the DJs, Zane included. Julie is my favorite though.

    I get the feeling Americans dig anyone with an English/Aussie accent. If the DJs had good old American accents would Beats 1 be as popular? I think not.

    I like Zane but I feel the radio could do with less of them talking over the songs, introduce the song play it in its entirety without speaking over the last 20 seconds of it etc that's the kind of gruff that annoys me about radio in general, say what you want between the songs but leave the songs to play in full without your commentary.

    I like him, he's a bit over enthusiastic sometimes but he was one of the first to play bands like the Arctic Monkeys and bring them into the mainstream.

    If that's all you want then that's available too. After every Beats1 show they post a playlist of all the songs played on each show each day.

    Tap the Beats1 logo (not the "listen now" button) and then scroll down and tap on the DJ whose playlists you'd like to hear.

    I think he's great. His energy matches the energy of the music he plays. And I really don't mind him talking over songs. He makes it feel like more of an experience he's giving you than just a playlist.

    Best DJ on the planet. Has a diverse and wide ranging taste and his enthusiasm is infectious. Was a great move from BBC to this for him. Will be listening regularly. In fact, I rushed the 8.4 download just to listen to him.

    Really wondering how many like the music selection on Beats1 - For me it is the worst radio station I ever heard till now. First off the annoying DJs talking into music all the time and talking like on drugs. 2nd I can't stand all the hiphop and RnB junk that gets played. I missing some normal music.
