world in my ear

An upside to being up at 5:00, is that you get to listen to BBC World Service. You get a whole new perspective on news stories and hear about regional issues not normally covered by the CBC.

So, thanks early flight!

Do you listen to radio when you are getting ready in the morning?

When I arise in the a.m., other than conversing, no noise of any kind for me, please.

I actually used my alarm clock today (rather than the one on my phone). It was set to a radio frequency that was mostly feedback, with occasional prayers and Mandarin news stories.

I don't remember the last time I listened to the radio.

I'll remember to be vewy vewy quiet should I ever have occasion to spend an am with you, Vicomtesse.

I am very glad you used a backup alarm today, OFKAR, and hopefully the prayers didn't hurt either.

No CBC for you, John? I find this somewhat shocking.

Not being the best sleeper, I listen to a lot of late night radio and enjoy the BBC World Service.

It's really interesting, Kathy, and gives you a fresh perspective on things. Although I would rather be sleeping.

Yeah, you're not the first to peg me as a CBC guy. I check out their website on a daily basis but that's about it. I usually tune into their Canada Reads program once a year, but missed it this year.

As I have a very open house I tend to turn on TV news in the morning and I can hear it most places.
