The mind boggles how long it would take to build the radio.cache! :-(

As it stands the current TV situation is not a massive problem for me as 
I mostly use PIDs because of the relatively small programmes I 
download.  Radio, on the other hand is a totally different matter with a 
very large number of relatively short programmes, especially on Radio 
4/4Extra and it's too much of a pain to go PID-hunting for each and 
every one! :-(
