There is something quite pleasant about lying on your bed after a bath listening to the radio, it does not intrude quite like television.
One of the minor draw backs of Gliffaes being located in such a beautiful and hilly part of Wales is that any form of signal be it television, FM radio or mobile phone is notoriously difficult to harness. For years I have struggled to get FM radio reception in the bedrooms until the latest digital transmitter near Abergavenny was turned on. Now we get a good digital radio signal.
In my mind there was only one radio that would suit the fabric of Gliffaes and that is the classic Roberts radio revamped for the digital era without loosing any of its timeless appeal and much to Susie’s delight she could choose colours to match the rooms.
Thanks must go to Michael Webb from Webb’s of Crickhowell for sorting everything out and for such a good deal. I am sure if you ask him nicely when you are at Gliffaes he will give you a good deal on your own Roberts.
