    You can get radio apps for mobile phones.  I use the Planet Rock app when I'm out and about or in the garden (with earphones - not everyone shares my taste in music  :) )
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
  • Thanks guys, no problem with the neighbours, I never blast the radio, but we are all very tolerant of each other's music, guests and dogs !
  • After breaking about three portables, I decided to get a small portable with earphones.

    It's a Pure 'Move R3' which I've been very pleased with & from memory cost about 50 quid.

    PRO's; very light, the size of a credit card & about 1cm thick. USB charged so no battery wastage, several presets on DAB & FM. No loud speaker to annoy the neighbours or wildlife.

    CON's: price might be too much if you only occasionally use it. Cable to earphones easily gets in your way unless you get into the habit of tucking it into your shirt or fleece!

    @Lyn Totally agree about listening to nature but alas, I have to listen to my musician neighbours' intruments,  someone banging a keepy uppy football and the latest thing is a very keen cricketing enthusiast who has installed an automated bowling device where they whack back noisy crickets ball all day !!! 
  • Thanks guys everybody is so hung up about the noise ! Honestly it is not an issue and not too loud to hear the birds! The slim radio sounds good but I don't want headphones, it's not practical for me! 
    Shwd mae Josusa47, yes Blodyn Menyn  is a buttercup in Welsh!
