Hi Y'all

We are getting very close to our permanent move north now. Down here in kent we listen to Arrow classic rock on the radio (fantastic Dutch station - 675 on medium wave), but when we've been up haven't been able to recieve it once we've got past carlisle..
does anyone know of any good classic rock station up there ??

Thanks for any help

Best bet is to get yer radio online like the rest of us :)

You should get something approaching FM quality on a standard dialup connex. Most of the streams are under 4k per sec.

On a related note - is there any DRB (Digital Radio) reception up there yet?
(I think Arrow may be available via DRB, will have a look when I gets home)

I took my set up last summer but it couldn't get a lock on anything - anyone have any ideas?

now there's an interesting option, I know for sure they aren't on the web (yet), and if they are on digital we'll certainly invest in a new radio (old rockers never die as the saying goes)

NEWS - they are on line. if anyone's interested
www.arrow.nl - then click on arrow rock radio, then on right hand side click on luister online ( as I type dire straits are on)

hey, i didn't think we were that bad!
my hubby and i do the friday night rock show on cfm, generally we aim for the more classic sound rather than thrash or death or whatever else they call that noise nowadays.

for online classic rock and roll, check out www.kfog.com

San Francisco's KFOG, home of quality rock and roll. Sometimes I need a little something to tap my toes by while at work. :cool: No thrash or death on this station.

Thrash death and punk rule

the rest is mostly old, sad, dead and safe!!!!

best radio was totalrock on satellite channel 885 but its disappeared they were digital too

they played old good stuff and new stuff

nobody else does it that good

stuff the radio just play your own records and you don't get annoying adverts

I am away for a blast of Ministry
