Tune in and snuggle down

In November 2016 we worked with NCT, Angel Radio and Solent Wireless to bring our soothing sounds to radio listeners in Portsmouth.

If you’re in the Portsmouth area then, for a limited time, you can hear our sounds on the radio.

Throughout November, we’re helping to make Portsmouth, Gosport, Hayling Island, Havant and Waterlooville some of the sleepiest places in Britain.

sleepyhead radio is a pop-up radio station designed to help babies sleep. The presenters, who include Sam Oakley and Loretta Leonard, are all parents themselves and the station plays continuous soothing sounds from the home and calming natural atmospheres.

These sounds have previously only been available on CD or as downloads.

Sleepyhead radio also includes expert information and tips about sleep, crying and feeding from NCT, Britain’s largest charity for parents.

NCT senior policy adviser Elizabeth Duff will share her expertise and experience every hour on sleepyhead radio.

Digital Radio tick mark

If you’re in the Portsmouth area just look for sleepyhead radio on your digital radio.

It will be audible on any radio with the official digital radio tick mark or on any radio that can receive DAB+ channels.

Sleepyhead radio is owned and operated by Angel Radio Limited using sounds under licence from little sleepyhead and with the support of NCT. It is broadcast on the Solent Wireless digital multiplex.
