The box had been delivered that morning and now sat on the kitchen table. With some trepidation, he opened it and unpacked the contents. Wires, a remote – but no instruction manual!

He plugged the unit into the mains socket and pushed a red button.

“And coming up at 9.30, it’s Ken Bruce.'

That’s radio conquered. She’d be back.
