Ann: Not this again. Firstly, the proposed switch off date has been changed many times, and almost certainly it will be pushed into the future again.
Secondly, DAB radio's are not 'new Reception Devices' - they've been around for years. And since you can get a DAB radio in Currys for £16.99, you can be pretty 'ordinary' and buy one.
