Indeed I do. It's to listen to podcasts of programmes I've missed :wink:

I've tried those cassettes in the past. All I've tried have been utter rubbish :cry: Ditto those little FM transmitters. can never find a clear frequency around these parts...

I NEVER miss the Shipping Forecast I'll have you know :wink: :)

Every morning at 05:20 I'm there listening to it whilst practicing Karate teqhniques... All part of my morning routine :-D

I can pretty much tell what the comimng days' weather is going to be, especially after listening to the Inshore Forecast...

boasting about being able to say "It's going to rain" is neither big or clever.

It's like boasting that you can tell an XM owner that someday his car will let him down in some catastrophic way
