The builders next door are listening to the radio, which is
playing an unending stream of great 80's hits. This makes
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
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.
