Hi, I wasn't sure which section to post this under. We haven't got digital TV and I wondered if there was any children's radio on normal radio. My dcs are 6 and under and they would love it I am sure.

Don't know about analogue but bbcradio7 has kids stuff. DAB digital radios are getting cheaper (£30ish) but not everyone gets a signal. coverage

bbc7 broadcasts cbeebies in the afternoons - it's great!
There are also Radio Disney but not sure which channel it is.

I would echo the comments about radio7 on digital radio. Also look at OneWord - they often have readings or dramatisations of children's stories, both classics and more modern stuff. Again, you can listen online.

This BBC7 sounds just what I meant. I didn't know it existed so that is brilliant. I have just downloaded it and look forward to trying it out. Thank you VERY MUCH!

Just been reading through. We have a half hour car journey to school in mornings and afternoons, can you get this on the radio in the car?

There is a podcast of the cbeebies radio 7 programme. You can subscribe to it via the cbeebies website. I've got lots on my ipod which we use on car journeys, or as an emergency measure I stick the headphones in Dd1s ears. Guarantees 15 minute of silence.
