Listening to the Radio

I am not sure whether its a generational thing or not but I was bought up listening to the radio its just something we did as a family.  My mum and dad always listened even my brother and my partner listen.  However my sister in law and nephew cannot abide itEven now I listen when I can.  I am currently missing it like heck.  My last one hit the great radio in the sky recently and I am looking to replace it to listen too when I am cleaning or cooking.  Its doing my head in.  I shall have to see what is available purchase ine and then get back into a routine.  Its not just the same without it.

Do any of you listen or is it something off your radar in this day and age. If you do listen what channel or type of music do you listen to.  My taste is quite ecclectic as I like classical as well as other musuc across the genres.  The only type I am not too fussed with is jazz and then not all of it

When I was growing up the radio was part of the daily routine to which to set our own personal calendars.  The same asvon a Sunday dinner we used to listen to Family Favourites and of a Sunday evening the Christie Minstrel show or Sung Something Simple.  Happy days where music marked the passing of time.

Catch you soon.

  1. I love the radio. Especially pleased with digital. Radio 4 Extra has all the stuff from 50s and 60s - old style comedies, dramas and thrillers. Radio 2 music wakes me and radio 4 gives me news and discussion and quizzes. My Roberts radio alarm clock has a little pillow speaker. I bought that in mailing. I can listen in the middle of a sleepless night without waking my OH. Yes it probably is a generational thing, but pleased my daughter shares my addiction to the Archers of Ambridge!! Happy listening x

    1. HI Angela. Have not had digital thus far but glad to know the old faithfuls are still available. My first cat was named Captain out if Mrs Dales Diary which we used to listen too when I was younger as well as the Archers. Anither faviurite was the Navy Lark. I think listening to the radio also helps you develop your imagination and visualusation skills. Glad your daughter enjoys too. It may well be thatvin the not too distant future I will get back to listening to the Archers again. Take care. Pattypan xx
