With more and more evidence that it can reduce stress and improve wellbeing, there has never been more interest in mindfulness and meditation.

RECOMMENDED LISTENING… RADIO GARDEN

radio-garden

Do you want to know what’s being played on the radio in England right now? Well, thanks to a website called Radio Garden you can hear radio from there, and almost everywhere else in the world.

The website takes the form of an interactive globe that can be rotated to pick up transmissions from every corner of the planet, clips from radio history and stories from listeners in different locations.

While it allows you to listen to radio from around the world, it’s so exhaustive you’ll probably find stations you didn’t know existed in your own city

 

In the section Live, you can explore a world or radio as it is happening right now. Tune into any place on the globe. What sounds familiar? What sounds foreign? Where would you like to travel and what sounds like ‘home’?

In the section on History  you can tune into clips from throughout radio history that show how radio has tried to cross borders. How have people tried to translate their nations into the airwaves? What did they say to the world? How do they engage in conversation across linguistic and geographical barriers?

Jingles offers a world-wide crash course in station identification. How do stations signal within a fraction of a second what kind of programmes you are likely to hear? How do they project being joyful, trustworthy, or up to the minute?

Finally, one can listen to radio Stories where listeners past and present tell how they listen beyond their walls. How do they imagine the voices and sounds from around they globe?
