I discover that digital radio had arrived in the Peak District quite by accident. It was around 3.00am a couple of weeks ago,and I was drifting in and out of sleep to the World Service. There was a crash and I was wide awake. My ear felt sore and after a few seconds I realised that my radio (DAB ready) had slipped from its perch by the side of the bed and fallen to the floor jerking as it did so the ear piece from my ear. I reached down and picked it up. As I searched for the World Service I accidentally pressed the DAB button and the “searching for station” text appeared on the little screen. I waited for it to return the message “station not found”. A second later I was listening to BBC 7. I was gob smacked and then I excitedly searched for the other stations. They were there! I could get digital radio. It was like Christmas. I turned to share the excitement and joy with Mrs BW. Then thought better of it. Best to keep it to myself until the morning.
