    Summers coming and it's gonna get boring cleaning all day long.
    Time to buy a new radio. I'm after one that is dab and fm. Sick of my phone going flat and good to have fm out here.

    What do you use?

    I have a little pocket radio (terrace trannys they were once called). Only about £15 in maplins. I also listen to my I pod, very handy. I learnt how to speak Turkish using this whilst working, and am now doing a Spanish course. Keeps the old brain matter going and take your mind off work for a while

    I'm interested in getting a dab radio for work that has a built in speaker. (I don't want to wear headphones all day). I was told you have to have the aerial fully extended to get a signal, is this true? Is so, its no good for me as I keep my radio in my builders belt pocket.
