This is great. Exactly what I've been looking for at exactly the right price.

Thanks much. This site will give me a chance to brush up my German, improve my Russian, and learn Latvian. Now if I can find decent instruction in Korean, I'm set.

As a kid I would listen to the BBC on my Grandmother's shortwave radio (until I managed to get one). I loved the accents and the fact that there was a lot more news than the gold ol' USA portrayed.

It's nice to know they are still one of the most universal radio stations!
