Where and how are you listening?

You don’t need to write an essay, but it’d be really interesting to hear how you listen (ie. BBC FM relay, BBC shortwave, online, public radio rebroadcasts and so on) and where you do it. The reason I ask is I’ve had a couple of surprises recently from NZ and the US.

I got an email from Hali in California yesterday asking to sign up to the Daily Email. As I often do, I replied asking how she listened to the show. KSPB was her answer, which raised my eyebrows as I had no idea we were carried in Pebble beach, California. This follows another one of you telling me you tune to KXOT in Seattle. We didn’t know about that either. And there have been others.

Beach FM in New Zealand has started carrying the show again recently which we’re delighted about.

So if you’ve two minutes, please tell us how you’re tuning in. It makes fascinating and exciting reading for us, and maybe even for you.

    BBC World Service – Online

    From, of course, Richmond, Va.

    I’m not sure the BBC is on any radio stations around here. Occasionally I have heard the BBC while traveling, but I think it was just select programs on select stations.

    I have three ways of listening to the show: BBC website, Hotbird Sat and the podcast. Here are the details!

    I listen to the show most of the time on the BBC website.
    When I am in a place where I can’t have internet connection, I listen to it via Hotbird Sat.

    When I can’t listen to the show live, because of being outside or at work, I listen to it via the podacst. I am one of those who podcast some shows. For March, I “helped ” the show reach 66,665 downloads and rank 28thon the list of monthly downloads!!!

    The average number of live shows I listen to is at least three a week.

    The days I wasn’t able to listen to the show live were Tuesday and Thursday because I worked in the afternoon on these days. For the coming days, there may be a new schedule for my listening habit. What matters, at least for me, is that I am a loyal listener.

    Also, I think WHYS should last a half an hour more!!!

    Hi Everybody,
    I listen through my TV Aerial using Freeview, a Digital Service put out by The BBC. I have a digital decoder that contains a hard drive to record programmes if I’m out. It is connected directly to my stereo system so I do not need to run the TV for Radio Channels. I do have to change my aerial to a broadband version for better reception.

    I listen on the Internet from the BBC World Service. But I can get it on the satellite TV
    too.

    (Actually, I just got the means to listen in real time on the Mac.. no problem on the PC laptop. The link took a lot of figuring out, on the Mac)

    It is easier online because I am in my own little space with my own little computer.

    Is it true in the UK that if you don’t pay some radio fee, they fine you, and send trucks through the streets to see who is listening to the radio, and if you haven’t paid the fee, they come knocking on your door?

    Hi Again Steve,
    We have to have a license to watch TV. £130 per annum. This includes The Radio. (I call it wireless) They can check who is watching what with vans. I’ve chosen to pay by direct debit for many years now. Means I do not have to worry and I’m on the “goody goody” list.

  28. May 21, 2008 at 17:26

    Here in Berlin one radio is constantly tuned in World Service FM, and one of the wireless networked EEEPC’s (mini laptops) usually has the World Service internet broadcast running. Which is amazing quality.
    And the FM is good here, when traveling around I listen to it on a tiny MP4 player that has a radio, works on the subway even.

    And I agree with Anthony; the program is too short!

    Funny thing happened though on the Mondays South Africa program.
    I was invited to join in, I gave my phone numbers and also my Skype address. So there I am listening to the show on the radio, when my skype rings, it’s an engineer from the show, to do a sound check.
    So I take the laptop to another room and do the Testing One Two Three bit, I could hear the show n skype, very good quality, and was told that I was load and clear, and when introduced, I would be “on line” as in a conversation. So I am listening away, waiting to be introduced etc. then the phone rings, it’s WHYS asking if I would like to join the show that evening, and I explained that I was already on hold – on Skype.
    The woman surprised that someone had already been in contact and asked what I would be talking about, So I turned down the volume on the skype and launched in my short version. I am now about 3 metres away from the computer talking into the phone.

    After a minute she “OK” and that was the end of the call.
    Back to Skype, but it had been disconnected! So I go back to the room where the radio is and the program is still running. My wife tells me
    “That was awful that Skype thing, I could hardly hear you and then they cut you off!
    “But I didn’t say anything!” I reply. “The Skype connection just went off!”
    But I was assured my muffled incoherent tones were heard for a few seconds.

    So, a very mixed media evening with the Beeb!

    However, when I’m not at home to listen to the show, I download the podcast in the ‘Podcasts Directory’ from BBC.co.uk. I have a huge collection, and I love listening to if many times!

    Here’s my listening choices in order of quality based on immediacy of the stream:

    1. KALW 91.7fm SF
    2. BBC online
    3. XM – 131 BBC

    BTW: I live over 100 miles from SF, CA on the Pacific coast of Northern California and the only way I can get KALW clearly over the air is with the NPR interference blocking antenna that is 10 times better than any other fm antenna I’ve ever seen. It drives me nuts dealing with satellite delay and/or buffering 22khz streams online and KALW is the only way to get the show in real time.

    I listen to the BBC online, through links on the website, everyday. WHYS starts at 14:00 local time, when I’m at work, so normally I can’t listen to it live – except when it’s not too busy over here. That is quite sad, but fortunately I can download podcasts when I get home 🙂

  41. May 21, 2008 at 21:26

    Hi WHYSers!

    I listen in the car on 104 FM, a dial completely dedicated to the BBC in Jamaica. I am not sure if that is a relay FM station, or what but it is the most convenient place to listen to WHYS as well as all the other programmes on the BBC. One of my favourites is Outlook. BIG Ups to Mathew, Rita (I hope that is her name!), Heather and all the others before!

    I listen to BBC online in my office. U.S. mass media is so terrible that i get my world news from the BBC — and encourage my students to do the same…

  43. May 22, 2008 at 01:43

    I listen to BBC World Service, on the internet, on 7.160 MHz. at night, 17.830 MHz. and 15.400 MHz. mainly. I use to be able to pick BBC World Service Short Wave Broadcast up on a lot of frequencies but not any more since BBC stopped transmitting on them and I only speak English. I use a 160 meter full wave loop fed by 120 feet of 9913 flex coax and a grounded 2:1 balun transformer with two line isolators one after the antenna tuner and one at the end of the antenna’s coax connection to the main antenna selection switch box. There are other antennas I use but my favorite is the 160 meter loop. (Big Ears and A Big Mouth.)

    My internet connection is DSL and from the same company I have telephone service with. The problem is that I have no other possibility of a internet connection but from my service. I live next door to Fort Benning, Georgia in a non-commercial fly zone in direct line of site of Larson Airfield, 550 feet above and 7 air miles away upon a Sandstone Ridge in Alabama. My telephone has twice been compromised and hooked up to my evil neighbors once for 4 days when I was in court a year ago against them and now last week for two days. I don’t doubt it is still tapped into, so the internet broadcast are not reliable. I did only have dial-up but it got to where it could not connect.. When I talked on my phone, I and the party I was talking to would hear a click clock sounding noise like someone was trying to hang me up as if my phone was theirs.

    When I’m not in the office (where listening can be hard if I’m answering the phones or reading your messages) I listen on digital radio. Unless I’m too lazy to walk across the room from the computer, in which case I might stream for a while ; )
    And when I’ve missed a programme I’ll listen to the podcast on the tube.

  51. May 22, 2008 at 11:08

    I listen to the podcast which automatically downloads to my PC since I am subscribed. As i can’t listen to every program every day, i tend to follow the blog and choose which program i want to listen to on the basis of what questions are being asked.

    Since i don’t have a digital radio or digital tv i can only listen to the live program through the BBC website. But this can be difficult to navigate and sometimes the stream stops working 😀

    I listen on KALW in San Francisco, CA. from 10 in the morning until 11. I can’t always catch the whole show, because at that hour I’m in the heart of my day, and as a realtor, I’m in and out of the car for some of the hour. I started listening to the first broadcast by KALW (91.7 FM) and immediately signed up for daily e-mail updates. If the update points to a particularly compelling story, I’ll try to be in the car for the broadcast.

    I tune in everyday by going to the BBC website, and clicking on. I have been for a few years now. I do it while at work, which is why i never get to participate, but I listen everyday, then I listen to the news for the rest of the afternoon. I love getting sports news from the rest of the planet, makes the US’s NFL and NBA, seem silly.

    Hello!

    I listen to WHYS using the Internet, I mean BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/ . I’m a listener from Poland and if I have time, I listen to the programme. It is 7p.m in here when you are on-air, so, as for me, listening to WHYS is a nice thing to end the day with latest news and interesting discussions.

    Lots of greetings and congratulations on a great show.

    I listen to WHYS on KALW, in San Francisco, California, USA.. It is a public radio station, which is significant if you are familiar with commercial radio stations in the United States.

    I tend to eschew call-in shows, but I have found that your show has a way of keeping debates thoughtful and intelligent.

    The global approach of your show is also quite fascinating. In some cases, your callers provide some insight of the worldview of their countries. But more often, I learn how my worldview is similar to people from around the world itself.

    I did not realize I could podcast. Fabulous!

    hi Ross;
    still listen to you and all yuor excellent presenters every day from about 0100 GMT to approx 1500GMT while out on the road with my “local” trucking business here in southern califonria. based in laguna beach, calif 92651 about 100 kilometers (62 miles) from LA.
    did send you photos of my trucks hope you received them, red Volvo and white Freightliner with two trailers equaling 73 feet in length. hauling mostly building materials, to from large work sites.
    you continue tyo give me the truth without the Americanized “spin” all the other news networks place on the news.
    i only watch the BBC news on Direct TV for USA each evening to get the straight stories not what gets handily deleted.
    thank yoy for your outstandfing work and i will keep listening.
    it was as pity to see the presenter og Outlook be replaced. an error in my humble opinion.
    I am Randall L. Miller, U.S Air Force/ret. 1968-1992, 3 years vietnam and tour in kuwait with 6 fused spine vertabrae do to “a round ” landing near the loading ramp ofg oir aircraft back in 1991,
    funny how CNN wa right there, we know it was filmed, but never ever appeared on american networks aywhere at any time.
    the artillary fire was during Desert Shield, before the actual “shooting” started for Desert Storm hence never made it to the public. however it was briefly on the BBC. s very good friends, of mine, living in Ipswich,a nd just outside RAF Alconbury, where the U-s /TR-1 were flying from in 1980’s.
    we had the “press believeing there were 3 aircraft on station as they were on the fence .”plane watching” taking photos as we knew that we simply do to security and intelligence gathering kept the airplanes inside, we actually had only one airplane there , Yet the SUN and MIrror and well,as the Daily Mail reported us the 17RW as having 3 aircraft.
    not too tough to repaint tail numbers when there are no other markings on your aircraft.

  72. May 24, 2008 at 03:08

    Very simply, The BBC reports world news and events in a precise and factual way and if for instance there may be some doubt, the BBC clearly states that the report was unconfirmed, so someone can know it may not be a fact. Some years ago, I have experienced listening to another radio station in California, stateting words to the effect that the Russians were pulling out of Hungary, when in fact they were advancing further, I lost money in commodities because of the mistaken report. Since then I know not to trust reports from any other broadcasting station.
    Besides what other organisation has reporters all over the world, none.

    Keep it up BBC I hope you stay in business for ever.

    Currently in Sydney, I listen to the BBC via commercial FM radio Radio 2000’s relay after 11 pm. Sometimes, I listen to it onlne.

    But after I go back to China, I’ll still listen to the World Service via internet.

    Want to see more downloadable podcast online.

    I pick up WHYS through my radio on shortwaves. I wonder how my town-mate Abdi receives right it in the first thirty minutes. I’ve got difficulties in grasping probably due to the BBC Somali Service domination of the airwaves at such time. Just after that I can get it right. Perhaps Abdi could give me a clue. It is enchanting listening WHYS!

    In Berlin/Germany, either on FM (usually in the car driving around the city or in the kitchen) or online. However, I must confess I listen to other BBC stations online more often (4, 7). The World Service is also the station my radio alarm clock is tuned to.

    And I know for a fact that I’m not alone in being absolutely willing to pay license fees to the BBC in exchange for access to the BBC’s broadband content! Including the signing of a “no right to influence programming in any way” waiver, if necessary. 😉

    Since moving to Cyprus, BBC WorldService has been a constant companion – I listen especially in the car on 1323 MW where this channel is the only one picked up clearly wherever we drive on the island.

    Listen to WHYS on KOPB, 91.5 FM, Portland, Oregon, USA. Listen to radio or online two or three times a week. WHYS is fascinating and frustrating. Frustrating when participants argue over each other. Frustrating when participants stray from topic and rant. Fascinating and informative to hear viewpoints from the rest of the world. Like Stephen Hawking says in the Pink Floyd song – KEEP TALKING.

    Listeners to Europe Today are also encouraged to email World have your Say about where they are listening from, so wanted to make these points:

    1. Why on the Europe Today programme do you emphasize that people EMAIL how they are listening?

    Obviously you’ll get more from ONLINE listeners that way !! (Once or twice the past days you also mentioned Texting, but the emphasis is on emailing)

    2. Regarding posting information on this blog the same applies:
    You are obviously going to get more who say they are online listeners, than would otherwise be the case!

    // Reason for mentioning this: //
    I hope this is NOT part of a regular BBC survey,
    as the BBC seems only too happy to shut down short wave and other radio services, eg to Europe/USA citing “everyone’s online anyway”, forgetting the quick easy convenience of ordinary radio, as well as many elderly etc listeners.

    They are easier to receive, they have less (or almost no interferences) and quality is better.

    Dear BBC,

    Thanks alot for taking up the task of bringing news the world over. I have been listening to BBC through FM here in Dubai, but I get interupted while it switches to BBC Arabic at 1400 hours GMT, although I am qiute good in Arabic, I feel the English version of the Radio is far professional the the Arabic presentation, which has sometimes long silences, while the presenter tries to find what to say.

    Recently, I found another confortable way of listening to the radio, that is online. And the best of it is that it is always in English, even after 1400 hours GMT!

    I hope I could get my regards through to all staff of BBC, they are great, I love the presentation and topics they discuss, so well arranged, especially the initial voice of ‘real’ situation before interviews … and so on (e.g. the noises, cryings, etc that takes me to the core of the scene).

    I am not quite sure this message reaches the editor. If only I know that it reaches, I may actively participate in this kind of feedback.

    Thanks,

    Rajab

    Looking forward to taking part in your discussions today. We’re all gearing up now to go to the conference room to watch our olympians compete in the relays … all wearing our national colours today in the office!!!

    On line.

    I travel a lot – hotels etc – and find the BBC “listen again” series particularly good for the 30 minutes I have getting ready. With TV, one has to stop what one is doing to watch. I like the laptop more: I can carry it around and get on with things whilst the programme is on.

    Also: there are no jingles, repeatedly annoying me and no advertisements! I like to select something which interests me and click straight to the content. The TV is largely a waste of time.

    I live in Stockton, Ca. Most of my listening, I will say a 99 % is through the podcast.

    Great shows. Thanks and have a great one.

    Im listening in Vermont, USA on VPR and have since inception . I was looking for he invitation to respond to “is greed OK?” asked at least twice in the last while. First I might say that the BBC has less imbedded opinion than NPR as well as asking more pithy questions, which retiring Americans fear to ask. As for greed, it implies an excess, as we have always had a profit motive, which went wild and uncontrolled right after WWII, as I recall. The concept is that capitalism is an approximation of competition in the ‘wild’, which it’s not, since family fortune is shared even today amongst the poorer people, while the practitioners of greed Always go for the largest slice of the pie and as much of the money as possible. It never gets back to the people who really Earned it in the first place. I can imagine systems w/o capitalism as well altruistic systems, yet I find that the transposed model from the Judeo-Christian template has been twisted out of purportion, and greed just makes it worse, for many reasons.

    Hi Ros I listen to you from Christchurch NZ. Your program is relayed live on two FM stations: Plains FM and on 108 FM. Both only carry the BBC overnight. I used to live in Dunedin NZ and there was no coverage. I was so excited to discover that the BBC was available in Christchurch. I listened to the BBC all the time when I lived and worked in Niger West Africa. So, to have the BBC here in NZ is just wonderful!

    Women have a greater sense of fairness and integrity than men, especially in regard to politics. A woman voter will put the readiness and character of a candidate before the candidate’s gender. Men, however, will also look at the character and readiness of a candidate when deciding for whom to vote. But, if a man and woman are running for the same office, men will band together to defeat the woman, regardless of the male candidate’s qualifications.

    MY SPOKANE DIARIES:

    I’m listening BBC WS online from Spokane, WA in the USA. – visiting from South Africa. It is sort of quite here. It is a small time way off the mainstream hustle and bustle of big cities.

    There is not much outdoor where I am. But a lot is taking place on TV. And there is an overwhelming sense among people I’ve spoken to that this is a historical and unprecedented presidential elections for the US and the rest of the world.

    I am glad I am here. I can count myself among a true witness of history.

    This program is powerful because it speaks to a world audience, it illuminates shared problems, and you create a world wide conversation. As with this particular program, just having the conversation, and addressing these problems helps give voice to many who need to be heard, as they each speak for many many listeners. Congratulations. Keep up the good work.

    But now I have hooked an old computer onto the phone line and I can get BBC World Service 24 hrs a day,and believe me,you are on all night long while I am in bed and the wild animals are scratching outside!Makes me feel safe!
    Now I must get back to chopping firewood for the wood-stove and get a bucket of water from the creek (have no running water),so you see;you have no idea just where BBC World is playing!

    A cute question, I have to say. Let’s see, “Where and How”, well, after a long day of working, often with a lot of frustrating events, lots of noise and lots of nowhere, I’d finally get closer to MY “heaven”. I’d turn off the lights–if there was an electricity power in the house! I’d go upstairs to my bedroom to finally enjoy my every day’s ritual. After 1 am, the big power generator near our house would be turned off, that is when a peaceful silence takes over the place of the terrible noise that makes our windows vibrating “turrrrrrrrr” and drives me crazy. Having a spare battery fully recharged in my hand to slip it in under my pillow, I’d get into my bed. Then, I’d take my MP3 device that I put on the table next to me and start straiten out the twisted headphone wires. I’d switch the device on, check how much battery life remaining, make a little hole in my pillow and fit my head into it. I gently tuck the headphones into my ears, adjust the volume, and start flying.

    This is “Where and how”.

    And thank you for that!

    All the best,

    Website is yet to be developed. Joining the end of the beatniks in 1962, I became a hippie flower child peacenik, and adopting rainbow and psychedelic colors helped send the message which went around the world from Haight-Ashbury in the “Summer of Love” 1967. When that message (and a garbled one it was!) seemed to be rejected by the society and government at large, I joined others who went around the world, seeking. Returning the the U.S.A. years later, where I have the right to speak out politically, I have worked to elect Barack Obama. Perhaps the Age of Aquarius is nearer implementation than ever before? I live on the Monterey Peninsula, California, USA, which has communities like Pebble Beach (a gated “town” of rich people who can afford to carry BBC radio for their children on KSPB, a private school’s radio station), Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel, Seaside, Marina, etc. There seem to be two classes here: Those who have risen to the top of their communities, economically if not morally, and who bring their ‘loot’ to the Monterey Peninsula for a life of early retirement, golfing, restaurant dinning and ease, and then luxury end of life care. The others on the “Left Coast” seem to be the artists and creatives who work on the ideas and concepts which are copied across the U.S. and around the world. This is my first entry on the BBC site, and I can be easily encouraged. I started listening to the BBC on KSPB, but have switched to the internet. Often when the Stevenson School students took over their station to broadcast their student programs and their choice of extreme ‘music’ (like rap, etc.), I wanted to call in and request “Play the BBC!” I’m sure that request would not have been honored.

    Hey Ros,

    I’m Romane from Jamaica. I usually go to the worldhaveyoursay website, read the topic for the day then at about this time (1:05 p.m.) I tune in via my mobile phone on the FM band to the BBC World Service.

    I could also listen online, but my speakers aren’t working 😦

    I must add that i really appreciate the programme. I hope one day I’ll be able to build up enough courage to actually call in to express my views/opinions.

    All the best,
    Romane

    Hi Ros
    I listen almost every evening on 98.7fm here in Blantyre, Malawi. The reception is usually excellent, much better than when we used to get the BBC on short wave.
    Ros would you do a programme on the appalling situation in Zimbabwe. Here in Malawi the rains have begun and the people work so hard to plant their maize seeds and tend their gardens. Zimbabwe is almost next door and there the people have no seeds to grow and no fertiliser. They won’t be able to harvest sufficient food to help them through next season.The cholera situation is so sad and completely unacceptable. Why is the World letting Mugabe do this to his people?

    Excellent programme. I know you are trying to be fair and politically neutral. However I would like to know how the on-air interaction with guest speakers and ‘the public’ is separated from the personal baggage which all people including BBC staff surely must carry.

    What criteria is used in the selection of articles posted on the blog, and what percentage of submissions are accepted.

    Do you correct the odd spelling errors?

    The podcast is sometimes frustrating when you think ‘I could really contribute well to this conversation!’ when you know the show was recorded hours ago. Still, it’s fascinating hearing everyone’s opinions and styles of argument. The wonder of modern technology!

    I listen on XM Radio, which I have in one car and at work and at home, yes I have three of these radios. My office mates have to listen to the BBC between 11:00am and approx. 3:00pm on a daily bases. No one complains, as we are all sick of the US news sources (all of them). One can only endure stupidity, and dishonest reporting for so long.

In the States, I could only find it if I had a shortwave radio. Hope that’s changed cause some day I’m going back there! And as angry as I get at BBC’s biased so-called “reporting”, it’s still far and away the best news org on the planet.

    I am actually not listening at this time and it,s a relief . Sorry about that as you think you are the bees knees- now come on,you do too. You never stop blowing your horn over all the interfering in every other country,s business. You always have the answer to their particular woes,or that is the inference.There is always something questionable happening elsewhere. There was the case the other night on World service-and I was listening initially-the BBC reporter was in China and there were all these unemployed people looking through the posted work opportunities, and then the reporter having advised us of all this then remarked that what he was about to say we would find shocking. He then went on to explain how employers are looking for male applicants for the brainy smart jobs and female applicants for more simple work which didn,t require brains. Well I switched off at that point as I wasn,t prepared to be influenced by his personal assessment and opinion. As far as I am concerned it, most probably true and that,s why they advertise in that fashion. Me ? I haven,t got a problem with that and am not at all shocked – what exactly is the problem ?

    I know about BBC thanks to the TV channel broadcasted through a Cable TV operator in Bogotá Colombia, South America.

    It is indeed upmost rewarding both intellectually and culturally for viewers of the third world of so called “developing” countries. Most of our local news are broadcasted within a framework of a provincialistic blindflolded viewpoint . Thanks to the BBC it is a relief to be aware of what is really happening in the world, being able to build and develop certain awareness of the global context instead of worrying about local happenings, mostly relating to violence, drugs, corruption, and local partisan small talk that leads nowhere if not connected to the world´s context. I wish politicians in my country would chose to enlighten their proposals grounded on what is happening in the world.

    A we say in Spanish, “they can only view the trees instead of the forest.”

  320. April 2, 2009 at 23:12

    I listen in the middle of the night dozing on the couch by the fire in my backwoods, off-the-grid cabin in N. Minnesota. BBC WORLD has made a connection with me with urgent stories that broaden my perspective. I still have a long way to go on perspective, like a manageable improvement perhaps. It is paradox, as I benefit from the Thoreau’s Cabin attunement with nature behind a barrier to humanity if I desire.

    I find Rebecca Kezbee and other voices very interesting to follow while half concious, sometimes becoming alert to the story unraveling.

    The rushing world is stark perspective from here where it gets utterly silent, to the point it seems I can actually hear the stars. I feed the birds, squirrels, a rabbit and the deer. It is very peacefull and beautiful. I trek out of it, the realm you know, several times weekly for accounting classes in town about 12 miles away. Get groceries at WALMART and use internet hotspots with my laptop. Right now I’m washing clothes.

    Capitalism works only if major exploitation of natural resources is profitable. Humanity needs to back-off and seriously rethink its approach to survival on this planet. Generally the capitalism mentality is very bad for it, and there is trouble when resources become unexploitable for huge profits.

    I’ll put up 400 watts solar array soon and be able to get along very well without the gas generator to charge batteries. You know there is a nifty modification to use the boost setting all the time for two batteries in parallel? I added a fan to cool the transformer and it is A-OK. So i will be working on a prioritizing battery charger soon.

    Getting an accounting degree may help, but I like EBAY for selling small production electronics devices. The prioritizing battery charger will never become obsolete.

    I pay zero prinicple, zero insurance on my home, zero electric bill, zero telephone so I can keep building my cabin on 240 dollars a week.

    BBC World has awakened me to something much closer to sensing the purpose and urgency of being alive than my politicized, euthanizing, control-freak, wacko, censored American commercialized emporium can be given credit for doing. But then, I have no child either.

    Hey! B B C selling my home of 14 years 5 years ago was a huge problem with investment losses, but the government caught me in a safety net and put me into school with extended unemployment, books and tuition paid. Its called the Trade Act Assistance program created in the seventies. I must relent that is helps.

    BBC world is my only source of real, broad perspective on humanity. Americans are going to football and WALMART.

    Hi,

    I’ve been listening on FM – KSPB Pebble Beach just across Monterey Bay from here inn Santa Cruz, CA, US. I’ve been listening for at least 6 years and wrote to BBC several times asking why KSPB was not listed as an FM station in US. Never received an answer.

    I’m in Chiang Mai Thailand for 4-5 months/year. Voice reception via True Cable is Fair, but band not broad enough for news videos on BBC News.

    Thanks for keeping me in touch with the world.

    Hi, I live in Valencia, Carabobo State, Venezuela. I listen BBC in radio UC 104.5 FM, and mainly live in internet. I listen every day while i am working in my office or home. Listening is a way to improve my english and keeping me update.

  346. May 11, 2009 at 12:56

    My name is Richard and I listen to World Update every morning in Boston, Mass in USA via the BBC web site.
    I usually listen for one hour at either 6:30 or 7:30.
    I listen to keep up with international news, which does get good coverage by US commercial networks.
    I like the BBC coverage of “smaller country” news eg Gurkhas in Nepal, the Civil War in Sri Lanka. I also like to hear a continuing series such as the Indian Train reports.
    I do not need BBC to cover things like Mid East Troubles that are NOT new, but chronic.

    Keep up the good work.

    I live in Dover, Kent County, Delaware, USA and listen to public radio station WSCL, 89.5, from Salisbury University, Maryland at 05:00. I listen to BBC for another, albeit Yank friendly, perspective on the World, the US, and Europe’s rock-star political leaders. And now we have our own rock-star. Let’s hope the World, or at least the West, can be in harmony now. I like how Dan Damon won’t let a politician side-slip a tough question.

    I listen to the BBC World Service which is transmitted by the Vermont Public Radio during the night, during period of insommia. I praised BBC to give me views of idea from all around the world. I am particularly interested in science, technologoy and political analysis. You are doing a good job. However, there is a lot of redundancy in the news presentation every half hours.

I can’t think of any major improvements to what you’re doing although I’m sure others can. Keep on doing what you do so well.

      Thanks for your reply to the pitch for information on our listeners. I’ve been amazed at the response to be honest. World Update goes off the air at 6am, so you would be able to hear any more of our programme, though the BBC World Service does continue after that time, but I guess WNYE have their own programmes that they’d like you to listen to also!! Anyway, again many thanks for getting back to us.

Find most of your topics interesting, but would like to hear more about the true costs of the products we consume, including environmental cost, and programs about the origin of the current monetary system and what are the possible alternatives. Keep on doing a great job.

    I listen Monday – Friday at night. I like hearing the news from all over the world. With an unbias take on it. I do have a question. Why is it that most countrys want the Sir Lekan army to stop fighting and give the tamal tigers time to regroup and attack again. This seems to me why we have so many wars going on. Hamas hides in nighbor hoods and shoots missils from them. Then when people get hurt people blame Isreal not Hamas. This is the same thing the Tigers are doing. I think they should finish the Tighers and end the war.

  353. May 13, 2009 at 10:28

    Every morning I get up, make my coffee, go to my computer and listen to BBC news for an hour. New reporting on both radio and especially television iin the US is bad particularly for international news. The BBC makes it possible to stay informed. Keep doing what you are doing!!!!

    I started with the podcasts because the tube is so packed with people that it is difficult to have space to read a book and hold on at the same time!.. but now I am hooked. I also listen to the BBC World Service Global News podcast and the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme – I only discovered WHYS a little while ago but it is my new favourite!

    I listen on the BBC ‘relay’ in Phnom Penh Cambodia.
    I work in Air Traffic Control in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) International Airports, but am a Brit Ex-pat, and like to keep up with what’s going on back ‘home’.
    The short wave is not very easy to receive at home, mainly because of the local RFI from phone chargers and general electrical interference, causing havoc on HF frequencies (I use my Icom IC-706 MKII-g transceiver to listen, with a G5RV antenna)
    It’s good to know that I can hear crystal clear BBC on FM in both major tourist cities in Cambodia.
    If you’re coming out this way (not recommended during the rainy season of June to October when it’s around 32C and VERY wet), then you can keep up with the BBC on 100.000 MHz in Phnom Penh and 99.250 MHz in Siem Reap (Angkor Wat).

On all the time, go to bed with it and wake up with it. Still. I receive the daily emails and podcasts so listen on my iPod. Love the BBC. Must get myself a World Service t-shirt!.

    I have been a short wave BBC World Service listener for what seems like forever. As an example, I followed the Faulklands War on BBC short wave. I hung in on SW until programs in English became few and far between, but by then the local internet connections had gotten robust enough to listen to World Service over the internet.

    Listening to this clear signal every morning it is hard to believe that we used to listen to the news obscured by static and the fading in an out of short wave transmission.

    However when the shortwave service was discontinued in my area, I invested in a DAB digital radio, but the only World Service reception available was the African edition. So I got a digital radio with Internet and now can chose an station in the world, tuning in to the European edition.

    The good thing about this radio is that it is already programmed to tune in to podcasts. My other favorites are BBC 4 and BBC Live 5.
    Long live the BBC

    I am having servere with drawals, my satalite radio at work is temperory out of commission at work. But, I have my home unit and car unit so, I am not climbing the walls with regular radio. I also watch BBC America on the cable box at home so that I dont loose my ear for the Brittish/Irish/Welsh accent. Do you all have a lot of trouble getting the pace and pronunciation of American english? Oh yea, the phrase “The queens english” has a little bit different meaning over here. Usually our Queens are in “drag”, and have a five o,clock shadow. Nothing is worse than seeing womens makeup on top of a bit of stubble. Think, Rocker Alice Cooper in flowing chafon and silk with his usual unshaved face. Wow, bad memories of afternoons during Marde Grade in New Orleans. Guys in drag needing a shave.
    See what happens when I dont have my sattlite radio to keep from wondering mentally! Way too scary.
    Thanks,

    I listen on KSPB, 91.9 FM, broadcasting from Pebble Beach (Monterey), California.

    I’m in Santa Cruz, approx 70km N, across the bay.

    BBC content is exponentially superior to commercial media in the US (including NPR). The only serious challengers available in the US are Democracy Now (but only 1 hr, M-F) and Al Jazeera English (which is arguably better than BBC, but in the US it can only be seen online).

    An earlier post refered to the bias present in most of the local news and I have to agree with that.

    I am in Rockcliffe Park, Ontario, Canada, and I am NOT listening because the BBC made the totally daft decision to end shortwave broadcasts to North America. Your executives did so at a time when the BBC’s radio audience in Canada and in the USA was increasing dramatically. All kinds of excuses were offered at the time, non of them logical. Nuts!!

    I love your show and listen on satellite radio in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I am a 38 year old college student and find your show very informative and engaging. I finally feel like a member of the global community. I love hearing about issues across the world and from average citizens like me. The level of reporting on the BBC to me is much more preferable than what we get in the US media where superfluous headlines about movie stars are commonplace.

    I live in the north woods of Wisconsin*, in the USA. Your website and streaming is a wonderful thing. There are no US radio news sources that come close to the quality
    of your reporting. National Public Radio pales in comparison.
    WHYS comes on at lunch time here, so I rarely miss the program. The astonishing thing about your callers, [whether from Dakar, Singapore, or Wellington] is their knowledge and understanding of the United States. The was apparent during the
    presidential election, a year ago. Many thanks to the reporters and new readers of the BBC

    I listen(when able) via internet from the BBC World Service here in serene southern Indiana. I cannot thank BBC and the WHYS team sufficiently for the privelege of hearing voices from places to which I will likely never travel. It gives me reason to hope for the salvation of humanity, when I hear reason and rationality from so many quiet voices, from so many places where harsh realities might militate against them.

    I listen to the BBC news hour broadcast at 9:00 a.m. via NPR affiliate KPCC 89.3 in Los Angeles/Pasadena, California. However, I listen via the web daily and appreciate the BBC alerts via computer. I am a news junkie and cannot imagine life without the BBC and NPR. I do wind down with CNN and MSNBC on occasion.

    Hi I listen to the World Service most days on the Greek Island of Kalymnos in the eastern Aegean. I listen via satellite, usually Hotbird 6 . Unfortunately my internet connection is too slow (56kbs via GRPS) in this area for comfortable listening. No broad band is yet available, OTE, the Greek landline phone provider, keep saying it will reach us in two months, but they’ve been saying that for two years now.

    Hiya Ros, – Love seeing where everyone around the World is actually from and what some of them are all doing whilst listening in! Makes me feel quite drab in our grey old UK climate! Your WHYS comments websites tend to email me first with requests for comments on your different Topics….so I tend to keep up with all the online comments that come in throughout the day more than I do with actually listening to radio…. But, when I do listen in – its either via *BBC online* or your BBC World Service Radio on our Cable TV (Virgin – Channel 906) – – crazy really, because with all the mad tech we have in the house, we don’t actually have a digital radio yet !!! … Still not clear about the UK going digital over analogue but the BBC have made so many other mediums available to listen to them with, that it really doesn’t matter!
    For our overseas friends – I live a bit like a ‘Hobbit’ in the beautiful mild rolling countryside of middle-England (Heartfordshire), UK, and more realistically – in possibly the midst of some of the Atlantics’ and Europe’s craziest weather patterns ! 😀 – Have a nice day! LOL X

    Sorry should have added – if people wanted to comment online to the various topics aired – they need to subscribe (its free) to the BBC World ‘Have Your Say’ pages to get email comment requests for their various topics (go to the section “World Have your say” etc) ! I’ve added this because WHYS don’t advertise this enough! ) 🙂 Good Luck!

  465. March 3, 2010 at 23:52

    Hi World Have your Say,
    I listen via the podcast because I live in South America in Peru, I download it and then I listen it when I am at University, You do have a really original programme and should never stop.
    Bye bye for now.
    I am looking for listening the next programme.

    Shortwave radio all my life, recently FM local BBC from Barbados. BBC television, and the difficult attempt at finding something you have only heard part of, and want to persue further from BBC on the web. Can never find the rest of it on the web.

I consider BBC as a very truthful mean of information. I would like to have you more on short wave.

    I listen via the Internet or to any BBC Podcasts I can find. Good old New Zealand have such restricted access to World Service that there is not much choice I am afraid. Anyone got friends in high places at National Radio NZ who can pursuade them to transmit more World Service?!!!!!!

    Hi: I hope you read this on the air.. …I listen in on the NPR station 91.5 FM in Vancouver, Washington State. Your listeners may not know but there is a 2nd city on the West Coast of North America which is named after the good Capt. Vancouver. It is just North of the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. It is also situated on a section of the river which is unique as it turns and flows north at Vancouver. Most of the world great rivers flow East-West. Execpt of course the Nile which almost exclusively flows North.
    Anyways I listen to WHYS secretly while at work in a food processing plant I am reminded everyday by someone that I should be glad to have a job working for minimum wage. Ironically my last decent paying job was outsourced to India. I have been a lifelong listener to BBC and your program is one reason I stay grounded, informed and sane in a terrible economy. I am originally from Sri Lanka having travelled the world in the 70’s and 80’s being in the merchant marine, having lived Australia on different occations and eventually migrated and raised a family in the Pacific Northwest region of the US. Keep up the great work and I think the SuperPower Nation should be used as a model for the next generation of young thinkers and leaders of the world we share as a model to shape a new global consiousness and focus on peace around the world thru better communications between the people. I think young people are the key to social change. Just like the people who raised the bar with civil rights anti -vietnam movement and I think the world is ready for the young people to stand up and make their voices heard in the halls of power where ever they may be.

    ps. The US Supreme Court recently conclued that a corporation can and has the constituional right to pay anything it wishes to any political campaign and does not have diviluge that information as it infringes on its free speech rights.
