I too found myself agreeing with you for watching both television and listening to the radio (here in Oz.) I dislike the volume of adverts on commercial free to air tv but accept it as a necessary evil. Of course, we too have pay tv here but I have never really thought it value for money as with the exception of old movies most of the rest can be seen on free to air tv anyway. Besides, why should it be acceptable to have to sit through adverts when you have already paid Mr Murdoch, or whomever? What I'm coming to is, if it is the lack of content on U.K. radio that is the problem then why not try listening to Internet radio? There are literally thousands of stations around the world to try and even a comparatively slow broadband connection is more than adequate. You participate in this forum, so you already have the hardware - maybe also need a pair of pc speakers - and the software is free from the Internet. Internet tv, or IPTV, has a little way to go before it is accepted as a replacement to free to air, but it's not far off.
Thank you, Rob!

And, if you happen to have one of the smart phones (like an iPhone or Andoid device) there are lots of internet radio "Apps" that will do the job for you and allow listening wherever you happen to be (data plan allowing) The number of stations is almost unending - with every type of topic/music covered, from talk radio, rock-and-roll, 60's to classical, all at the touch of a button. And, from right across the world. The choice, as they say, is endless.
Thank you, Rob!

Hi all Wave A STORY *********** Once upon a time, in fact yesterday afternoon, Rob was just about to take his first mouthful of jelly & ice cream with a household of family & guests when a fault was discovered on our picture upload system. The team told Rob, no hurry, we will post a BBC interlude film until it could be fixed. Now most of that could be a story, but what is fact is that within a couple of hours it was all fixed, with the windmill removed. Normal service was resumed without a seam to be seen. If that is not commitment & dedication, I don't know what is!
Thank you, Rob!
