So,people like me don't have to! Lovely! ;D :) Incidentally,I just swapped that radio cassette thingummy for this model,since it seemed to have some ID on it! (I don't think they'd sue me! ::)) I must have spent allot of man hours waiting patiently beside one of these things for a R3 broadcast of some obscure work or composer I'd never heard of! The reception was usually poor on R3 (great on R2. Yes,I want to record Glen Campbell! ::)) so I'd try and fiddle with the telescopic aerial,usually,to disastrous effect! I seem to recall that Dundonnell's (Colin) recording of Arnold's super-slow performance of his Seventh Symphony included an added bonus of police radio messages! Great fun! ;D :)

Such fun! That was the joy of FM in the good old days - local tips from the coppers as to what were the best places to pilfer from (i.e. low security)...
