Roy, our UK correspondent, has written int to remind me of a repeat broadcast of Desert Island Discs (a show in which celebrities list and discuss their favorite music) that will be airing on Friday (Feb. 2nd @ 9:00am) with guest of Science Fiction author Brian Aldiss. Guests of the show are asked to choose the eight records they would take with them to a desert island. Due to music rights issues this show is NOT AVAILABLE through the ‘Listen Again’ service, so one has to ‘tune in’ or listen via live stream RealAudio.
In more straightforward listening, Roy also tells us that a new production of a new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s proto-Science Fiction story The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde that will be upcoming on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Saturday Play‘ slot…

By Robert Louis Stevenson; Performed by a FULL CAST
Radio Broadcast – Approx. 60 Minutes [RADIO DRAMA]
Broadcaster: BBC Radio 4

And, you can look for this one on the ‘Listen Again‘ feature the day after it airs.
