Analogue radios to be ditched by 2015
Yesterday, we announced the death of analogue television – today, we’re killing off analogue radio.
The Thatcherite tribute band better known as the coalition government are set to announce another digital switchover, this time for radio. The plans were laid while Labour were at the helm, with a 2015 target date for everyone to be either listening to radio via a digital set or online.
In a nutshell, that will reportedly make 100 million existing analogue radios about as useful as a paper fishing rod and mean that 30 million car radios would be scrapped or converted. All so that we can listen to Chris Moyles talking while he’s eating a fucking sausage sandwich in the mornings.
How will it affect you? Does anyone ever listen to analogue radio any more? Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? Tell us in the box below…
