I have been enjoying a new back to back music station
on wi fi radio playing music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s
This is how they describe themselves:
This is where you will hear the very best music from the very best era of music, the 1950’s, 1960’s and the 1970’s.
From Rock ‘n’ Roll legends like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent, the 1950’s comes alive on Flower Power Radio. The Swinging 1960’s live on through the music of the decade; The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Motown, Psychedelia, pop… the music that shaped a generation! The funk, disco and rock of the 1970’s sounds better than ever here on Flower Power Radio; David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Roxy Music….its all here.

Most impressed with a BBC TV advertisement I saw this weekend to promote dab radio. It shows a radio set changing from a very old set right up to a dab radio. Great to see Radio on Television, and very cleverly edited together. What they do not mention is that dab is a flawed system. That is in my opinion, it needs a perfect aerial, and in common with all digital sound glitches or cuts out if the signal is weak. We are lucky in the London area, but people in the regions are lucky to receive all the BBC services alone!
On Saturday Fi Glover continues to do an excellent Saturday Live on Radio 4. She has a section on the show called Inheritance Tracks. This week Monty Don the gardener chose Kathleen Ferrier’s “Blow the Wind Southerly”. The feature asks people to recollect songs that they heard in their young years. The show is a great selection of speech, verse and talk. Saturday Live information Fi has also written a very entertaining book called “Travels With My Radio”.
Excellent review of Fi Glover’s book
