I have a dashboard widget for Vintageradioshows.com
, free to listen to 'golden age' programming. The Cassette Archive
on Wordpress has recordings of old (BBC) Radio shows to download, I've been using it a lot to listen again to John Peel, Steve Lamacq and Mark & Lard.
Plus I do a bit of work at Totallyradio.com
, an independent, free or subscription online station consisting almost entirely of great specialist music shows recorded especially by independent labels and really knowledgeable DJs. Can't remember if you can download, at least on the free model, but I'd recommend it anyway.
A large amount of the BBC's speech-based content is made available on CDs and most of it is on the iPlayer to stream for a seemingly unlimited period *
. Now I'll have to explore these other tips.
...is out to lunch.
