The magic of radio, (and recent changes in regulation) means programmes can be broadcast from anywhere there is an internet connection.
And because of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, a number of presenters are either choosing to, or are being forced to host their shows from home.
We’ve noticed a number of you are tweeting your home set-ups, then Steven McIntosh went and made a fabulous thread about it.
If you are a presenter and need to work from home – the basic tools you’ll need is a decent microphone – we recommend this USB one which can connect to any computer or tablet – a pair of headphones and a way to connect to your station playout system.
So, with thanks to Steven, here are some of the one which caught our eye:
