About BBC Radio 4 Extra

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC Radio 4 Extra here, on UK Radio Live!
BBC Radio 4 Extra has nearly 2 million weekly listeners in the UK. The third most listened to radio in the field of the only digitally distributed radios. Sister station of BBC Radio 4, so its all programmes are speech related, but without live talks, and phone-ins. Several times it airs extended versions of the BBC Radio 4’s featured programmes. BBC Radio 4 Extra’s broadcasting structure is fed by the BBC Sound Archive, so the time span of its selection is nearly 70 years, and contains mainly classic comedy, drama, and features.

The station broadcasts only digitally, so it can’t be followed with traditional analogue radio, but available on almost every digital way, we recommend the online radio stream.

BBC Radio 4 Extra 's slogan: "Showcasing the best in comedy drama and entertainment. With quizzes, sitcoms, panel games, satire, stand up, life stories, classics from the archive, science fiction and fantasy"
