You only need wifi to simply plug it in to any wall socket and listen to any radio station in the world, I’m transported when I listen to Woman’s Hour on Radio 4, even the Today Programme and sometimes Play for Today. I can almost hear the cold. The kids listen to Capital Radio but also have stations that play only Kylie Minogue music (when I’m out!) , another called Disco Ball and some Latino music stations from Brazil.
