How do I download single games?

That’s great, thanks! Remember being so jealous of my cousin who had a Spectrum ZX+...and of course most of the time I was only watching him play...nevertheless I still remember some of the games, so maybe I will find them here.

2 hours is super short for a book.

Game of Thrones, just the 1st book, is nearly 34 hours.

This is the radio dramatisation from Radio 4. It is abridged and adapted - probably well worth a listen - just not the full text. Still, heat from me.

They also have an amazing archive of Radio Shows as well. I love the horror, suspense and sci-fi stuff they have.

Great shows from the 40s/50s/60s onwards.

Early memories: @ aged 6 & 7 I must have been (pejoratively) "queer" because bare chested, broad shouldered Daddy Woodentop was a source of excitement whenever he appeared. The twins always struck me as silly and Mummy Woodentop was almost invisible to me. Thinking back it never registered Mummy Woodentop was as naked as Daddy. Perhaps her ruff had the effect of creating the illusion of her being dressed from the neck down.

thank you Boz also there are classic movies a good range a big variety of music and enough to spend most of the day searching as well

awesome!

Agreed, the LPs work much better than the CDs, they seem to flow.
Some bits seem a bit odd and out of place - the letter from Korea was right for the time, but the decision to use it seems odd in hindsight, it seems like the DJ himself feels uncomfortable with it.
Also, the DJs including songs from previous years is probably right for the period/show but right for a snapshot LP ... hmmm...

The bitrate of these is on a par with Audible - i.e. very poor. At least being free you're not being mis-sold like Audible do though. Also you have to wade through the "this audiobook was brought to you by" spiel that goes on and on and on and on at the beginning and has you reaching for Audacity to snip that out. Have you really only just discovered this site? I think it's been around since before computers even existed.
