To be able to offer any assistance we need you to provide a full post code. Only then can we see what the expected reception conditions are like at your location.
As we do not know where you are in relation to the transmitter, we have no way of telling what your signal level should be like. So please check you are tuned correctly to the relevant channels (for Kidderminster they are 32, 34 and 35 currently) and check that the signal levels are in the required range (you idealy need it to be between 60% and 85% for good reception, too little or too much will cause problems).
