I haven't listened to TMS for about ten years because neither of my last two motors has a radio that picks up long wave transmission.

I've tried that 603mw transmission but the reception is absolutely shocking in West Yorkshire.

I still miss it.

I listen online. CMJ always brought a bit of gravitas to what could otherwise be quite schoolboyish broadcasts.

DAB filters out Geoff Boycott? That's genius!

I hadn't thought about that. Now I just have to work out how to get on the internet from my mobile phone.

Thanks l'ang and WR. Off for a walk and a bit of a talk to myself and some good memories, like about those Adidas trainers in the 70's he bought me. Was I the dogs then or what? :)
