Radio 1, n.

Pronunciation: /ˈreɪdɪəʊ wʌn/
Etymology: < radio n. + one n. (Arabic numeral 1)

It was loud, and vain, and endlessly repeated; and it had little harmony, but rather a clamorous unison as of many trumpets braying upon a few notes. And it essayed to drown the other music by the violence of its voice.
