Radio Stations

Post by Amelia Camelia » Fri, 13 Jul 2007 8:30 am

Hello everyone,

I would really like to listen to some London radio stations (and maybe others). I thought it would be as easy as popping into my local BEST Denki and asking them for a DAB Digital radio set... except they had no idea what I was talking about and offered me an mp3 player instead.

Does anyone know what the best way is get radio stations from abroad? I don't want to use my PC which is kinda what I have been doing because the sound quality isn't good enough.

Anyone know where I can get information about Digital Radios or even buy them in Singapore? or maybe I would be better off asking someone to bring one over from London?

I'd really appreciate any help or advice... because I just cannot get on with 80's music!

Amelia

Hi,


I went to Tangs and got the lowdown - they pointed me in the direction of Sony across the road with their WorldBand radio which sounded pretty similar and doesn't do what I need.

I've never heard of an internet radio before - that sounds just like the ticket!!

I'm loathed to go to Sim Lim though - the price is ok if it means we can listen to what we like.

Thanks so much for your help - do you think you could give details of the specific radio you have and exactly where you bought it from in Sim Lim - that place makes my head spin and I'm really not at all technical, which is basically the reason for the post in the first place.

Thanks again,
Amelia
