Bits and bobs

If you find your BBC radio listening on DAB "degraded" from Thursday to Sunday, the BBC has been explaining its Radio 2 Country pop-up station to US radio guru Larry Gifford. 

 “We take bandwidth from lots of other radio stations in and around the BBC; other digital stations. And take some of that bit rate and compile that to allow us enough bandwidth to be able to broadcast that station..... So, things like Radio 4 which broadcasts on long wave on digital radio — that goes away for few days. We’ll degrade a couple of the other stations a little bit to allow us to broadcast. And that gives us enough over four days to power our radio station. So it appears on digital radio, you will be able to hear it on the iPlayer radio app and also on the UK Radio Player app.”

Comments are welcome. Yee-haw, as I believe they say around Western House...
