BBC RADIO IS NICE
Blog
Posted on Apr 12 2010 by Greg
I was just reading about issues dealing with satellite radio and left a comments about one of my favorite things in life, BBC Radio. For those of you who have not seen earlier posts on this site, I'd like to point out that there are seven different BBC Radio Stations, all with their own website, each offering an embarrassment of riches for all ages (but parents should be cautioned that, while there are several fine children's shows, some other BBC programs contain mature material).

I listen mostly to BBC Radio 2, Radio 4 and Radio 7, because they have hours of music, comedy, drama and documentaries -- many of which celebrate American culture much more than today's broadcasts stations do. Good shows turn up on BBC Radio Scotland, too.

Most of the shows on BBC Radio stay available for listening on your computer for seven days after they air. You can click on them any time of day and they play.

I usually check the daily schedules on a weekly basis and then note the ones I want to hear on a word document with the URL, then when the air date comes, there it is.

The most unusual thing about BBC radio is that, unlike American radio which fazed out sitcoms, sketch shows and dramas by 1962, BBC kept making shows and still does, often with such names as John Cleese, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Diana Rigg, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and U.S. comedy folks like Jay Tarses, Greg Proops and Whoopi Goldberg.

Good stuff!
