Not long ago, before my husband and I were connected to DStv, we discovered with a degree of relief that we could tune in to Classic fM through our television. Being seriously technologically challenged, I can’t tell you how, but that’s how we get SAFM too, for what it’s worth. Our listening on the latter never extends beyond AMLive and that only until 8 am. After that, with mostly phone-ins that are generally knee-jerk platitudinous twaddle, the wireless stays off until the news bulletin. Mostly, even now that we have the much-vaunted DStv, our television stays off. We are newspaper addicts. We prefer to read. If the way forward for media communications is going to be electronic, with no books, newspapers and magazines, then I’m glad I won’t still be around. There have been predictions for years that radio (wireless!) will disappear, but it hasn’t yet. Hopefully books won’t either.
