Fi Glover is a bit of a traveller. She is also more than a little obsessive about the radio. In January 2000 she set off on a journey which took her around the world, via many radio stations and some very strange communities. From Somerset Sounds to Howard Stern City, Miami to Monserrat, it is a wonderfully funny and strangely moving quest to find the perfect radio station.

A unique journey around the world of radio by a sharp and sassy radio and television host.
Fi Glover set off in January 2000 to travel the world in search of truly unique radio stations. From Somerset Sounds to Howard Stern City, from the charismatic Rose who guided Montserrat through the tragedy of their volcanic eruption to Dr. Laura who talks the dysfuntional of the USA through their psychotic days; from the peace-keeping corps of Beirut and their radio-station-in-a-hut to the despairing English football broadcasters in their booth above a café in Brussels, this is the wonderfully funny and strangely moving story of a quest to find the perfect radio station.
