    The People's Songs has been excellent series. It's well worth trying to find the ones that aren't on iplayer.

    Got a long car journey next week, so have been downloading loads of radio. I'm particularly looking forward to You'll Never Be Sixteen Again, a 7 part John Peel series from 1986 series telling the story of the teenager.

    Just listened to episode 2 of 9 of Tracks on radio 4.
    Dark (especially for the time of day) and gripping thriller.
    I hadn't heard the first episode but it still made sense.
    Will be following to the end. :cool:

    Good isn't it? Was driving when I heard the first one, and by chance caught the second one too, didn't realise it was weekly.

    Radio 4, iPlayer, 'Classic Chandler'

    Basically the complete set of Marlowe books in audio book form. Really well acted and abridged.

    I don't usually like radio drama, but Chandler's style works fucking well - at least I'm loving it, and I've got the attention span of a gnat.

    6 days left for episode 1.
