Default BBC Radio today - a collection

There was a brief report of the Nicholas Logsdale radio collection today. Would love to see it all though!

It's here at : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-17608123

If you are looking for more info the fellow's name is spelt: Nicholas Logsdail

Must admit I'd not heard of him before.

Thanks for posting this Stephen,

My son telephoned me this morning to say "Dad, there is something on Radio 4 now, about old radios". By the time I had switched on it had finished but thanks to you I have been able to enjoy it.

This article on the web quotes him as claiming "I put together one of the biggest collections of radios that exists in the U.K." so where can we see it, and why isn't he a Forum member?!

I don't suppose his collection comes close to Gerry's though... or Howard's, or Jeffrey's, or Steve P's...

My collection is small. Definitely only in double figures even if you include radio and TV.

Talking Re: BBC Radio today - a collection

Are the double figures in hexadecimal or binary?
