Radio-4-Matic #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Radio-4-Matic

Here’s a little bit of time-travel magic to help Adam Foster experience a little live radio magic. And as he reported to us when he shared the project: “I used various Adafruit components and materials in its construction, so technically I *suppose* it’s an Adafruit!”

Something one encounters in these western United States of America is the lack of BBC Radio 4. Or rather, the lack of proper live Radio Four, the excellent iPlayer Radio providing invaluable on-demand capability. “But Adam,” I hear you cry, “you can already listen to live BBC radio over the internet! Why can’t you use that?”

Timezones. It’s live radio, but all the timing is wrong. Namely, the written-in-stone Radio 4 schedule must not, under any circumstances, be allowed to become misaligned from the rising and the setting of the sun. How could anything (or anyone) remotely British even think of operating normally if the Friday evening comedy gets broadcast on Friday morning, or if the Book at Bedtime arrives early in the evening? Or heaven forbid, if Woman’s Hour escapes from its usual 10am ghetto?
So, short of removing both the North American continent and the Atlantic Ocean in order to make Seattle a suburb of Plymouth, we’re going to have to take the existing internet radio streaming and add a timezone-busting delay. Oh, and then wrap the whole thing in a suitably middle-class casing complete with a Royal warrant of appointment. Luckily, we moved west of the Prime meridian, so we can get away without using actual time travel.

Cue the Radio-4-Matic.
