    This is an exceptional, friendly site. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    Bad news about this site, as of 30th Dec 2013 it has been shutdown permanently.

    Yes – a real sad loss.

    And still the effing stupid BBC hasn’t come up with any “legal” way of doing what Cheops and the others did: easily accessible historical archive material like this.
    I’d even pay.

      A real loss – the BBC could make money selling radio programs – but not at the old CD prices! I’d pay…

      I did support radioarchive. Thanks to all those who took part!

    A horrible shame – since The Box and now Radioarchive have gone a massive treasury of vintage and archive TV & radio has now been lost seemingly for good…

    Well, at least demonoid is back.

    All uploaders can go there and revitalize it.

    One of the best sites, ever. Cheops deserves a tremendous amount of credit for the work he did. Why can’t the BBC come up with a streaming option for BBC radio that charges a monthly fee?

    Real shame, when will the BBC get its act together and make its content available. Where will I get my wonderful McLevy stories from now missing last two series and no hope of getting them elsehwere.

    Come on BBC: digitise your back catalogue and either make it free or, if you must, charge a Spotify-like small monthly fee. If you can’t afford it, why not make an appeal – there’d be loads of donors to make this freely available to all who’d benefit from it.

    What a shame that radioarchivecc has gone.

    Although I wasn’t a frequent user I did really appreciate it’s presence. I often make my own recordings as needed but found that those already uploaded by archive members were often better in some respects.

    The beeb will never make their programmes free again. Pay per view is more likely.

    Demonoid, RadioArchive.CC and now KAT – I love my BBC Audio and I’m one of the lucky ones who made sure I copied and downloaded as much as I could. I have a good collection but it gets old. I have yet to find a good replacement for Demonoid but especially RadioArchive. I will say a big thanks to Cheops and everyone at RadioArchive. They were my first torrent site I went to. (Cue Memories song now please) :(

      NJSA, Do you have anything you have downloaded to share? I’m afraid I came across too late, and am really keen to build a collection of BBC Audio. Perhaps you could compile them into a torrent?
