Radio 4: Making the sky fall asleep for over 40 years.

Listeners of Radio 4 have sensationally admitted today that they don't know why they listen to it.

Bob Smedley, 52, has been a keen listener for over 12 years. "I often tune in of an afternoon, and listen to the mindless drone that falls forth from the speakers, but I really have no idea why!" he told us.

"I don't really like the radio plays, that are often played in the afternoon," said Carole Snatchly, 63, "I just automatically put it on and nod off in my armchair!"

The BBC channel, which has been running since before radio was invented, shows no signs of stopping though.

"I just want to say," said Chris Aldridge, senior announcer, in a rather posh, yet soft and warmly tone, "that we as a radio station hope that one day...."

At this point I nodded off.

The station is so boring that during the war it was the only station kept on. Simply because everyone, including the Germans, forgot all about it.

The government have insisted that in times of crisis, the same will occur. MP Tony Liar, Labour, told us "if we ever have another war with someone, we'll keep Radio 4 going as long as we can. After all, should the country be taken over by foreign troops, we may just catch them napping and strike back!"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
