    Asda are doing some cheap portable DAB radios - £30. Showing out of stock ATM.

    you may need to carry a spare set of batteries, though, as DAB seems to eat them quickly.

    You'd get over 10 hours if you listen to a 48kb/s stream rather than 128kb/s per the calc.
    You can see the streaming bandwidth here: United Kingdom - Online Radio
