So, what else? 6 music is on but is playing old stuff and talking a lot, pissing me off. Or do I just need an internet radio?
Really? How much old stuff? I've got a list of at least ten songs/artists on paper and Shazam, (paper because Shazam hasn't even caught up with them), from the last two or three days on 6, all of them people I've never heard of before.
Of course 6 plays older stuff, but even then it's always quality.
If you don't like people talking on the radio, I suggest you get an iPod Classic, fill it up with music, then stick it on shuffle.
As far as Internet radio being the future, what joker thinks this is practical? How, exactly, are people going to receive it? Mobile? You gotta be kidding, right? 70% of the population don't have a 3G mobile signal in the UK, 20% don't even have 2G! Then there's the 1Gb monthly cap on data. Yeah, I know 3 offer unlimited data, but their coverage is woefully inadequate, even around fairly populous towns. Wifi? Yeah, right, what wifi.
I can only think that people who wiffle on about Internet radio live in large urban areas with good wireless broadband, lots of free wifi hotspots, and can afford to pay extortionate rates for cellular data.
The rest of us have to make do with Radio 1/2, or shite commercial radio, then, instead of getting quality digital stations on DAB?
