Default Using BBC Radio to improve vocabulary

Out of all BBC radio channels I find BBC 4 particularly useful. Regular features (e.g. Money Box, Food Programme) help revise vocabulary pertaining specific topics and offer natural dialogues to imitate. When I need to improve some area of vocabulary (Money Box is great since it discusses financial issues in a way even non-professionals can understand), I listen to the programmes regularly or download them from the podcast section to listen to them again when needed.

Do you find BBC radio useful? Which channels or programmes would you recommend?

I often listen to podcasts on BBC Radio 4 as well. My second favourite is ABC Radio National http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/podcasts/ because I like Australian English

For American English check http://www.npr.org/podcasts/

I think that listening to radio podcasts is helpful when you want to train your ear and, perhaps, pronunciation. Whenever I have more time I try to write down some useful collocations, too.

I recommend BBC One - good music and not so complicated vocabulary. It's very good replacement for polish radio in a car etc.
