Everything connected, everywhere

The world has become so small. All information, no matter from which part of the world, is available at the touch of no more than a few buttons.

That is, until you’re stuck in a traffic jam in Germany and want to listen to a speech by the new president of the United States, not overdubbed with a German translation. Try to find that on the radio.

Fortunately, I was able to pick it up on AFN at 873 kHz, tuning in to AM radio for what must have been the first time in my life. It’s great to see this kind of low-tech still at work and being so useful.

Only the Queen listens to AM, and she doesn’t have a BMW M5!” (Youtube)
