I love radio, the whole thing. I have scanners, comms receivers etc. I love the history, the big machinery (look for pics of the old transmitter halls at Droitwich) etc, but just cant see analogue radio surviving because of the bandwidth hunger and users putting convenience over quality.
My issue with FM is there's only R2 that I listen to, and then generally only late at night (Mark Radcliffe etc), so for the variety, I have no choice but digital in some form.
I've had some lovely analogue tuners over the years, including a gorgeous old black Sansui with rack handles, but for one station, it's not worth it. Though if I could find another Sansui like the one I had for a tenner or so, I'd stick it on the shelf just as a testament to nice 70's japanese engineering
Looks like I'll be sticking with my Squeezebox for my 'radio' listening then. Shame. Internet is so unromantic.
