I doubt they were watching the radio, just listening and doing other things as well.
They may have been 'watching' the radio, but they were using their imagination while listening to whatever is on. Most days, people are to lazy to use their imagination - if they even still have one. Much easier to watch mindless tv.
Soon be time for The Archers on Radio 4.Been running since the fifties.The Old days are still here.
I like TV but a book is always better than the movie.
What should they watch......the lampshade?
probably listening to the radio caused eyes to settle there, maybe looking at the wave dial to see if it was moving or not.
DD is the funniest man alive no question
