    cannot listen on my i pad any more sunrise radio 1 any solution please?

  • Pradip

    The new 1458 is not up to standard .
    Was listening last Sunday morning aweful.
    The afternoon show with Anisa has gone down hill.
    Used to love her song selection but now it’s worse then aweful.
    This way the station won’t last much longer.
    Unfortunately I live in Kent and I can’t receive 963 or 972
    Come back Dr Litt
