On Monday afternoon my eye caught an article about a new radio channel from NRK on the digital radio, a (more) local Oslo version of NRK P1, with a slightly younger profile (at times it has felt as if the target audience for the programmes on P1 is the same as for Always folk music, i.e pensioners, whereas P3 and mPetre seem to have teenagers as its target, which leaves those of us that fall in-between somewhat outside). Now they only transmit three hours worth of their own programming a day, the rest of the time they re-broadcast the “regular” local version of P1, but after having listened to the programme yesterday (didn’t see the article until after the transmissions ended on Monday) it seems like a nice, ad-free, channel to listen to instead of P4.
Since this is digital radio we are talking about they of course also transmit a scroll text with programme information and similar. Since they are doing summer radio, water temperatures for various places where you can go swimming in the area are scrolling by the display on the radio, but I must say that it doesn’t feel particularly tempting to go for a swim when the warmest water that is to be found is fifteen degrees (and since it is too late to be first anyway, I might just as well wait a while longer).
My normal radio-listening day at the office now looks somewhat like this:
|8:00||NRK Always news|
|after 9:00||Radio Oslo (analogue)|
|13:00-16:00||NRK P1 Oslofjord|
