IT'S TV ON THE RADIO: You're okay, it's not a Tommy Vance comeback, just the launch of Visual Radio by Nokia - basically a phone with knobs on that allows radio stations to transmit pictures (to people willing to pay for them) alongside the usual FM signal. It's more of a glorified webcam deal, to be honest - the pictures will be static shots updated every minute or so rather than glorious, full moving picture - but it holds out the promise of receiving images of Chris Moyles doing the breakfast show over your toast and macrobiotic coffee beans every morning. And if you want another argument against it, it seems to ignore that the main attraction of radio is that you don't have to look at it. Otherwise we'd all be watching the telly.
