Stuck in the nineties...pt 2

If I'm rubbish on phones I'm even worse when it comes to what I gather is now called 'home entertainment systems'. Or what I would call radios, tvs and CD players.
I discovered just how lacking in knowledge I am when I started thinking about installing this stuff (or at this stage the wiring for aerials and power supplies) in Harry. After a few days' research I've pretty much mastered digital tv - 12v flatscreen tv, digibox and a portable mini satellite dish should sort that - but radio and music are another thing altogether.
I asked an 'expert' but he said I needed to decide what I wanted and then he could advise on how to fit it. Which is just the trouble. How can I decide what I want when my knowledge stops at pushing CDs into car stereos and I can just about remember how to turn on the iPod my daughters gave me.
All I want is a radio that can play MW so I can listen to football on 5 Live (which in a perfect world I could do while lying in bed and switching on and off by remote) and a halfway decent device to play music. Starwoman wants The Archers on R4 and she doesn't want her saloon cluttered with ugly speakers either.
It ought to be simple.

You need a DAB radio, then you can listen to 5live in good quality. There are in-car versions, which should work fine.
