What's that radio station?

The builders next door are listening to the radio, which is playing an unending stream of great 80's hits. This makes me think there ought to be a sort of Shazam service to identify radio stations. So, after listening to one or two songs and comparing with all other stations available on local FM/DAB bands this would tell you what station you were hearing.

       hmm... why not pick up the frequency from the radio, itself ? It used to be illegal to operate an FM radio on an airplane, for fear it would mess up the aircraft controls.

       What's a Radio? - ha (actually I still use my classic Bush radio with no FM) and I will NEVER use DAB - crap, puny signal compared to FM (I have a great Roberts FM radio too - British of course)

       How do you know it's a radio station?

       The real problem is that there are too many stations on the wireless. Why it was considered necessary to supplement the Home Service with crass - even commercial! - broadcasts is quite beyond reasoning.
