BBC Hot Spot

Two stations I love listening to come from overseas. 6 Music from the BBC comes from England and CKNW sends me the hockey from Vancouver. Only problem is that if I want to listen to them I have to be at my computer, and that’s a drag on a warm summers day when you could be out cleaning the car as the hockey is playing.

To overcome this bugbear I gave in to my gadget fetish and purchased a stereo fm transmitter that plugs in to my computer. This great little USB plug’n’play box sends out a signal I can pick up on any FM radio throughtout the house and outside. Given the ridiculously high download limits from my ISP I could leave it going overnight and wake up to the evening show from London. Gotta love this internet thing.
