Sean's Stories

Tim Lovejoy. Known for his highly over exuberant and often ridiculous opinions on football (e.g. “Frank Sinclair is the greatest player to have ever graced the planet”)

I made the mistake of listening to his 606 football podcast before bed – big mistake…
Last night I dreamt England won the World Cup. For some reason, the final was being played at Twerton Park.

As featured on Danny Baker’s 606 – a very special version of Bohemian Rhapsody, where every syllable is replaced with a football players name.

Following a comment on my blog about a confusing FiveLive jingle, I decided to e-mail the BBC to find out more…

Hello,

Could you please explain the meaning behind the new radio jingle “at home and now in car”

As far as I was aware, assuming your car has an AM or DAB radio, FiveLive has always been available ‘in car’, just as it has at home.

Is there something I am missing?

Many thanks,

Yesterday, I received the reply

Dear Sean

There are now two ways to listen to DAB digital radio in your car.
The first is to fit a DAB radio where your existing Radio /CD player is.

The second is an add-on that is powered from the in-car power socket.
The Radio is attached to your windscreen (like a Sat Nav) and recieves
DAB stations then transmits them to your car radio on an FM frequency.

Best wishes

5 live

Besides spelling ‘receives’ incorrectly, the BBC also failed to answer my question, which was WHAT IS THE POINT IN THE NEW JINGLE? Oh well…

Has anyone else heard the new BBC Radio FiveLive jingle? “At home and now in car” As far as I was aware, assuming you had the correct technology – i.e. an AM or DAB radio, you were ALWAYS able to access FiveLive in whatever vehicle you chose to drive.

He may be a big, fat blabber-mouth; but Radio 1 DJ, Chris Moyles, speaks some sense on Dennis Wise’s treachery.

This will be the last time I will mention on the Dennis Wise incident. Sorry for boring the non-football fans.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
