i went travelling with a MD player - it packed up after 6 months, by which time I'd got pretty fed up with my selection anyway. Thing is I also took a shortwave radio with me. That's what I'll definitely do again in future. Always something new to listen to and you can even catch up on the English footie scores on the World Service.
I Pods are certainly cool but again if the thing breaks down when you're in the middle of nowhere (which you can guarantee is where you'll be when it does go wrong) what you gonna do?
Personally I miss good old fashioned tapes!
One of the first songs I learnt at school was "God Save The Queen". That's a nifty tune if ever there was one.
I had my minidisc for a year and i broke it by getting water into it!-give me a year with something and i'll go and break it-got some good stories!
The radio thing sounds good-i was thinking about the zen creative-which also has a radio!
I may have got that wrong-but there is one with a radio-it may be that one-oh i get confused, i look at so many!
Basically it's an i-Pod. Does look good though-search on google-or search 'special reserve' online-they had them on there! that's where i was looking!
This is the info for it! plus it's 5 gig!!
you may not be that interested but i felt like posting this, hehe!!
