During my many sleepless nights I've been passing the time listening to BBC Sounds. There are lots of excellent podcasts and my latest discovery is The Listening Service, which is a fascinating technical exploration of classical music and what makes it tick. I would strongly recommend it for anybody who enjoys classical music as it will improve your appreciation.

BBC Sounds is worth the licence fee alone. It was a bit rough when it came out but it's great now.

Great comedy and drama options too.

I'll give it a try. I tend to listen to Radio 4/World Service during the night but Radio 3 is better for sleep (if all the opera people are already asleep - being woken up to overblown vibratos is an aversion of mine that chills me like nightmares).

I find the app really stable. Less so when I get my Alexas to play radio.

If you're not listening live you can download a lot of the programs. I do this a lot and go walking the dog in the woods and need not worry about signal.
