Radio 2 Listening Figures

I have just heard on the One Show from Zoe Ball that Radio 2 has 40 million listeners. Does anyone know how this is calculated. Is she saying that two thirds of our population listen to Radio 2 - and how often? I've often heard that Wogan or some other programme host has two million listeners but is this per show, per hour or per week etc? The country's most favourite comedy TV show attracted an audience in the region of 24/29 million (I cannot remember the figure and I haven't looked it up as I cannot be bothered to check) but is Radio 2 consistently beating this figure by its boast of 40 million listeners? Is anyone able to explain how these figures are calculated or, dare I say, doctored?

Excerpt from Sally Traffic's entry in Wikipedis

'She has worked alongside Johnnie Walker, Chris Evans and Simon Mayo on their respective Drivetime shows, Steve Wright during the afternoon and Jeremy Vine at lunchtime.'

Yes, but that's when Chris Evans did the afternoon show.
