Don't know about you but I really enjoy listening to the varied guests that they have on Desert Island Discs.
Over the years there has been some fascinating castaways but did you know that you can search for, download and listen to a selection from the last 75 years!

Your posts just get better and better, gerrymig. Thank you

I tried 2 at random but finding these link to unavailable podcasts. I suspect many of these are purely the links not podcast associated but be wonderful to hear some of these. I tried Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Ps still a great post all the same..

"... listen to any or all from the last 75 years!"

Oh dear, not quite all! Seems the early editions don't exist.

I've changed the title to reflect, I know for a fact that there are a large number to download and listen to because I've been dipping in to them for the last year or two.
Try the new link to get a more useful list of available downloads

Rick Wakeman and Paul Abbott (the bloke behind Shameless) are worth a listen.

there are some absolute gems on here, ive listened to just about all of them

one common theme though, is that a lot of people have terrible taste in music. you only hear 10 seconds of the music so its ok.
definitely a winning radio show formula though, heat!
