    Choice between in and on

    I observe people say “in a radio show”, “on a radio programme” and “on radio 1”. Can I take it as people use “in” and “on” when referring to a specific programme and “on” when referring to a TV or radio channel?

    Many thanks

    Richard

    Nobody else has answered yet, so I'll just say that you appear to be right.
