Years ago, when Classic FM was first starting up, they did some test transmissions on the new frequency. I happened to tune in one day while driving. The test transmission was simply a recording of birdsong in woodland. Wow. I didn’t listen to another radio station in my car until the proper Classic FM programming started. Obviously I tuned away pretty darn quick at that point. Henry Kelly. Enough said.

Fiddling with a DAB radio at home yesterday I happened upon a digital station called Birdsong. Yay! It’s the same recording I think. I cannot recommend this station highly enough. It’s incredibly calming to hear the sounds of the countryside when you’re sitting in an office surrounded by technology.

Do try it.

    DAB geeks seem to think the channel is only temporary. Shame!
