Whether their chosen station is Classic FM or Radio 1, one way in which music instrument players and other music fans often enjoy music is through the medium of radio.

And now a Cardiff man has won a competition to create a radio design.

The competition was tied-in with the well-known Today programme, which airs on Radio 4 and which announced news of the contest's results recently. The programme first hit the airwaves back in 1957.

But David Hampson's radio didn't just win a contest – because of this it will actually be sold to the public soon. And money raised from this will help the well-known Children In Need charity.

"I'm thrilled to have won the competition and it's wonderful to know that my design will be a part of people's homes. I'm also pleased that profits will be going to BBC Children in Need," said Mr Hampson.

Among the BBC's music-playing radio stations are Radio 1, Radio 2 and Radio 3.
