    Hello, the show goes out on DAB, so the way to find The Wireless is under the alphabetic list, either T or W. Or you can listen online, click on the highlight in paragraph 1. And a new way is via digital TV, the 700+ numbers are radio and you should find The Wireless there. The station doesn't have an FM frequency.

    Radio wavelength would be very useful

    Loved the interview with Kiki Dee, although a little disappointed it didn't end with a Kiki / Jennie duet.

    An excellent interview (Parts 1 & 2) with Captain Greybeard. I'm thinking Jonathan Ross must be nervously looking over his shoulder wondering if he'll be replaced by the Jennie show.
