Your truth free from fear:

- no anorak victims here!

"The big difference between Anorak Nation and the many other anoraky boards is that the discussion can get into the finer details of subjects 'cos there's a lot of experts, good ideas and wonderful experiences being shared.

It's all with a good sense of fun, friendship and respect.

Most importantly Anorak Nation has none of the gratuitous bullying and victimisation that other places allow or encourage."

About Anorak Nation:

We are a collective ('Nation') of enthusiasts ('Anoraks') of gadgets, boys toys, technology, tv, film, new media and communication, especially real radio - free radio born of the pirate radio stations.

If you are an early adopter, putting all your cash into the purchase of the next big thing in 'tech', a collector and lover of gizmos old or new, or a 'web-head' exploring the latest social media and 'cloud' developments, then you've found your home.

It's also your home if you enjoy film and tv, or if you're tired of bland, boringly presented, syndicated radio stations run by a badly programmed computer, playing the same few safe old songs over and over again.

Centred on our discussion, Anorak Nation offers feeds of UK media and new technologies news, debate and lively exchanges of views and more.

Remember: You cannot see the current poll, start a message or reply to others unless you are logged-in.

Trash Can Radio

Hey, guess what...there's a new kid on the block. Trash Can Radio is due to launch soon on DAB on the Sutton/​Surrey Multiplex. And guess who is at the helm!

Re: Eagle Radio

Regarding how many people will listen to AM radio - I think it depends where you are. In the area where I am , the south east of England , the answer is pretty close to nobody.

Re: Eagle Radio

Well, that's a bit like the 'potential' that Worldspace had. However, nobody bothered with it, and that's now the way of AM, hence why the panic to get general entertainment stations off of it.

Re: Eagle Radio

say, ten years ago. DAB listening outstrips AM hundred fold these days< I guess the point Alex was trying to make is the 'potential' for AM would far outweigh the DAB platform.

Re: Eagle Radio

That doesn't seem to be the case in these modern times, compared to, say, ten years ago.

Re: Eagle Radio

Hi Tim et all So we'll walk into an ad agency, one with a local AM license and one with a DAB local ticket? Who's the winner?
