Do you ever wish you could listen to the best bits of Radio Four’s Today Programme while skipping the dross? Just as Sky Plus has transformed television by allowing you to fast forward the adverts, I have recently acquired a radio that does the same: Evoke-3 by Pure has this same “live pause” facility So just leave to record for half an hour, and then you can fast forward the irritating bits. No need to listen to “Jesus was left-wing too” Thought For The Day or environmentalism masquerading as journalism. And you get the same brilliant array of presenters (about to get less brilliant, sadly, when Carolyn Quinn leaves). It’s about £120 on eBay, and I’m sure you can get cheaper versions. But the era of suffering bad stuff in broadcast as you wait for the good stuff will soon be over
