“The acclaimed Bunk Bed with funny, intimate in-the-dark conversation and the voices of the famous dead. Peter Curran and Patrick Marber let those crazy disconnected thoughts before sleep float into the air.”
The sixth series of Bunk Bed is currently being broadcast on Radio 4 on Wednesday evenings at 11pm. It’s a rather lovely thing that’s a little difficult to describe. Or rather it’s a very easy thing to describe (it’s two men lying in bunk beds having random chats, with occasional guests) but it’s possibly not very obvious – unless you’ve heard it – why someone might go looking for that. But I recommend that you do 🙂
You won’t have to look very far because the lovely BBC have added all the previous episodes from Series 1 to 5 to their BBC Sounds platform, and they’re adding Series 6 episodes after they go out. I love the gentle (sometimes sharp), funny ruminations and observations accompanied by the occasional rustling sound of a duvet.
You can subscribe to the whole thing (new episodes will wing their way to you) or you can listen on the web or via the app, and even download the episodes.
