That was strange... [Mar. 18th, 2010|07:08 pm]

My DAB radio was tuned into Radio 4, showed Radio 4 on the screen.... but started playing 6 Music. Did someone at the BBC click on the wrong thing or knock their coffee over the equipment? Or is this a surreptitious attempt to get more people to listen to 6 Music?

We had the same here - I had Radio 4 on FM and my wife Radio 4 DAB - both played 6 Music at about 7pm this evening

So it wasn't a DAB feed cock-up then... how strange... That must be the first and only time 6 Music was on the FM band.

Mine was on 6 earlier this week, I assumed him indoors had changed it over from 4, but he denies everything.

All DAB radios are being uploaded with new firmware that will make them default to 6 Music.

Mine is a Planet Rock radio that is supposed to default to Planet Rock! Although to be fair I haven't changed it back yet, I'm enjoying the change.
