RE: What did you get today?
I've not owned a TV since 1990 so can sympathise with that. Can't say I've missed it either.

Just a pity, TV Licensing are such a bunch of persistent demanders of money with menaces - the legal term for this is "extortion". But it appears they don't think that bit of the law applies to them.

I get a threatening letter from them most weeks. It really is quite boring. Bit like TV really which is why I don't have one.

I'm listening to much less radio at the moment as they really are off on hysterical path.

Radio is a very under-rated medium and I have this little thing on charge so I am looking forward to using it later today.

Don't you mean the wireless Tongue Sarcastic_hand I use the phone for most of my music through it does have radio to Smile

Hi Rod - I have an Ipod for my music. The radio is for news and talk-ins and general chat shows. It is also for plays and drama which is better on radio than TV. Radio 4 and 5 live are my most used channels.

RE: What did you get today?
I use my phone for music, podcasts and audiobooks. I have an iPod somewhere but haven't used it recently. I have a serious audiobook habit because like the radio it leaves my hands free.

The World Service was pretty much a lifeline when I worked overseas. I used to have a serious radio habit but rather less so these days - I've never been able to stand phone-ins and I very much doubt there is a radio in the house that isn't default tuned to Radio 4. The car does have Radio 3 and Classic FM tuned as well, and I get traffic news when I'm somewhere populous enough for the Beeb to care from Radio Scotland.

These days I listen to most of my radio as podcasts though.

The only room in my house that doesn't have at least one radio receiver is the bathroom. And that's only because the batteries leaked in it one winter.

One day I'll get another battery receiver for the bathroom - it'll be run on rechargeable cells as I really don't approve of throwaway batteries.

DAB round me is more or less a waste of time, FM works infinitely better.

I haven't listened to the radio in the car in years. I like to drive in silence.

An eleven dollar mod from China arrived today - less than three weeks from ordering it which isn't bad as some stuff from China is taking two months in the mail just now.

Another dual 18650 200W mod. It's prettier than some and looks like I might actually have to read the instructions first Smile
