No 13: The Shipping Forecast

It seems entirely appropriate that ‘unlucky for some’ No 13 in our hit list of cricket loves is actually something that totally frustrates yet is still, just about, part of the cricket lovers life. This one follows on nicely from No 12, Test Match Special, because of course, the dulcet tones of Aggers and Boycott –  ok, Boycott perhaps not so dulcet – are regularly interrupted by that infernal shipping forecast. I have no idea how much longer longwave radio will continue to be part of our modern broadcasting in the digital age, but while you can still tune your car radio to test match special on longwave, you can still miss that vital wicket while discovering the incoming weather on Dogger. You know what, as annoying as it is, I think I would miss it interrupting TMS if it wasn’t there.
