BBC Radio Player is a great way of catching up and you can listen while you browse on the computer
Funny thing ........ I listened to the radio adaptation of the Lord of the Rings when it was broadcast. That it was 1981 surprised me as i thought it was before that in the 70s.

Especially cooking or ironing (not that I do the latter these days
Hang on....that was off-topic........sorry.
So much brilliant comedy on BBC radio. Old Harry's Game, ISIHAC, Just a Minute is like a cosy pair of slippers and is still funny, The Now Show with Punt and Dennis is topical.
A musician friend (Duke Special) recently discovered Ivor Cutler and performed 'I worn my elbows to the bone' on tour last month. I'm sure Ivor appeared regularly on radio way back but can't recall when or where.
The radio comedy which reduced me to helplessness on a regular basis though was a series Michael Bentine did in the early 80s. Driving home late one night and having to stop the car 'cause I was crying with laughter.
I promise no harm will come to you. I doubt you will get such an offer from an eel.
