Old-timey 1940s woman tunes AM radio

The coming of DAB+: Stereo eluded the radio star

Breaking FadAmong my collection of radios, I have a couple of DAB sets, a 1940 Pilot Twin Miracle, a 1950s Ferguson that needs a bit of repair, and a rather long-in-the-tooth Marantz tuner as part of the living room hi-fi. It's a while since I powered up the Pilot, but it still more or less worked, which is not bad going for something that old. And, more to the point, there are still – for now at least – stations that can be picked up by those sets, three-quarters of a century after they were made. I suspect that the serviceable life of my old Acoustic Solutions DAB set will be a little shorter than that.
