>> The BBC Radio Player
Visitors to any of the BBC Radio websites over the last 24 hours may have noticed that Listen Again feature has been unavailable since yesterday morning. By the end of today’s programme, the BBC Radio Player will be back … with bells on! The re-launched Radio Player makes almost every BBC Radio show available to listen again online for a full seven days after transmission. The new player adds 80 new programmes which were not previously available to listen again – That’s 500 extra hours of programming. Most importantly for fans of this programme, Steve Wright in The Afternoon is now included in the Radio Player for the first time (as are Ken Bruce, Sarah Kennedy and Janey’s Saturday morning programme).
The re-launched Radio Player is also much easier to use, with new features including a full A-Z of programmes listed by network, a compact view, resume functionality (which lets you pick-up listening where you leave off) and On Now & Next information for all live shows.
