BBC Radio 7

Digital radio station BBC Radio 7 (previously known as BBC7) was the principal broadcasting outlet for the BBC's vast archive of audio comedy. Many old series, such as The Goon Show, Dad's Army and The News Huddlines could be heard on this station. Spats, Tilt and The Penny Dreadfuls are three of the comedies it produced. The station has since become Radio 4 Extra.
