    Question Digital Walkman Thingy ?

    I have searched, but buggered if I can find owt

    I walk miles with Elvis each day and would love to be able to listen to Planet Rock on the go.

    My phone can do it, but I have a limited download.


    Any ideas ?

    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
