At Musicmann's conception (the mid 1990s) LW was still actively used (Frantic Atlantic had 4m listeners at one stage) so it would have been feasible, and there were about 60 - 70m radios capable of LW reception. I would imagine many of these have now been put into spare bedrooms / lofts/ garages or just skipped, so the potential LW audience would certainly be much smaller today.
But we are now in multi-platform days and simple LW 'wide coverage' radio will not become necessary, unless Comrade Putin begins slinging hardware this way. Can anyone see THAT happening?
