I had absolutely no idea that this was indeed the case — and, moreover, has been since July 2001. 18-years ago. WOW.

Another casualty of the Internet.

Yes, in from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s I had fancy (i.e., expensive) Sony SW receivers so I could listen to the BBC on SW — primarily to get cricket scores.

Yes, it is also true that once I could get cricket score on the Interweb (via. say ‘cricinfo‘) I lost interest in fiddling around with SW.

Wow.

I just go myself a small radio from Amazon today so that I can EASILY listen to NPR during my walks. [I am off-crutches after 6-weeks and intend to do a fair amount of walking.] It had SW has a bonus. So, I was looking forward to listening to BBC on SW. Well, I guess that is not going to happen.

P.S., It was cheaper to get this $24 radio than messing around trying to get FM on my Google Pixel 2.
