Can anyone recommend any intelligent speech radio at lunchtime that isn't You and Yours or Jeremy Vine (I've had enough of angry/racist cabbies, truckers and Daily Mail readers)

  • Analogue radio or digital? A few talk stations on digital (depending where you live) R4, R4extra, Talk Radio, R5live, LBC for example but LBC seems to be a bit right wing and wouldn't be surprised if talkradio is similar.
    If you have a mobile download the BBC iplayer radio app, tons of listen again stuff?
  • Online. I do use the iplayer a lot, there's loads of good stuff there. But when I'm at work I just like to put the radio on and see what comes up.
    I might give 4extra a try, it seems a bit drama heavy, I mostly look for documentary, current affairs, discussions etc

    Try NPR - national public radio, it's the US equivalent of the BBC and lots of good stuff on there including some BBC world service. And thinking about it, BBC world service is on DAB as well.
