If you are an avid radio listener

How do you decide which program to miss, in order to listen to a program that you have downloaded.

Equally, we are all fond of the Music that we matured with.

However, how do you decide that you will not listen to the one latest musical offerings. I can accept that some new genres are difficult, but at what point do you decide to cut them out of you listening spectrum?

" How do you decide which program to miss, in order to listen to a program that you have downloaded. "

I [perpetually] record to hard disk - in batches of approx 6hrs [+] of analogue Radio[4] [input] and convert all of this analogue audio content into a manageable digital format using an old but reliable piece of software called 'Soundforge'.

During the 70's and 80's I recorded a lot of John Peel's late night Radio1 show onto cassette tape [later, converting to digital format].

I am not a great fan of this new BBC IPlayer malarky ... "you have got X amount of days to listen to ... whatever! "

HB - Do you listen to your recordings?

If you do, which programs do you ignore while you're listening to past recordings, or maybe you make a recording of current output while you are listening to the recording of older output

I've got so much recorded, I don't have to decide because a) I've forgotten most of what I've got and b) even if I give up sleeping there is no way I'd get through it all.

So I tend to 'lucky dip'

wee eddie - I have only listened to about 5% of all the material that I have recorded this year ... about 40,000 hours in total [ I unfortunately lost many of the George Orwell radio transmissions 'cos my hard drive went belly-up']. I find it very satisfying/empowering being able to manipulate the many different voices on radio and then pigeon-holing them to suit my listening habits. [ It's worth the license fee, I reckon] ;o)

PS. The BBC Radio4 and BBC Worldwide Radio program schedules [on their respective websites] give detailed listings of all radio broadcasts for the past year and further back in time are excellent guides when collating personally-made audio recordings.

To me radio is a medium that you just turn on and listen to as is. I've never recorded programmes to listen to later, if I've missed it, I've missed it.

Unlike TV whereby you wait until a programme is finished to go out, the radio just get put off and that's that.
