I can't say enough about this wonderful, informative program. As both a night owl and a talk radio junkie, I am an avid listener of CBC Radio Overnight. It provides an incredible mosaic of perspective. If you happen to have insomnia, this show is ideal for the inquiring mind with a global voice in mind.

Superlative programming each night/morning, from 1:00 a.m to 6:00 a.m.
(I usually make it to 3:00 -3:30 a.m - I've made it to the end only three times - I record the programs and tune in later) CBC Radio Overnight offers 'Radio Netherlands', 'Radio Sweden', 'Radio Prague', as well as the great 'BBC Outlook', 'Deutsche Welle', 'Radio Australia', 'The Voice of Russia' and 'Channel Africa' as the prime contributors, with other nations from time to time thrown in for good measure.

If you haven't checked this great program out, and are up, then tune in.
My only wish is that they'd start the program sooner, say 11:30 p.m. or midnight, but, there is a little thang called 'Canadian content'.

Hmmm, it's Radio Netherlands right now and they're playing a First Nations Pow wow. Interesting...

I remember as a kid I had a shortwave radio, I used to love going through the freqs picking up stations from all over the world. I miss that...

Since being in Canada I have suffered for a few months of insomnia, and living in Quebec (and being a poor French speaker) I took to listening to CBC Radio 1 just to hear a bit of English!

I think that the CBC puts on a great collection of overnight shows, it's not just that I like listening to the British and BBC sections, but also the Radio Netherlands and Australia. Its great to listen about whats happening in the world in more detail than, say for example, BBC World Service.

I wish in England we had a similar overnight show to CBC!

However I like the CBC in general, both radio and TV.

Yeah, CBC Radio Overnight truly is a window to the world. Very cool stuff.

"However I like the CBC in general, both radio and TV."

Ahhhh, 'The Nature Of Things' (CBC TV). Can't get enough of that show.

CBC Radio 1 Canadian programming does indeed offer great and informative
programs. Both my car and home radio are often set to CBC 1. I am partial towards 'Dispatches', 'Definitely Not The Opera', 'As It Happens', 'Sounds Like Canada', & 'The Current'. Sure, some of the shows can be duds, but 98% of the time the content is vunderbar. One of my favs is 'Ideas' with Paul Kennedy.

And on Sunday nights at 10:00 p.m., CBC Radio 1 offers a diverse selection of 'radio play' performances, which I find very cool, as I am a fan of the old 1930's/40's radio plays that NBC & CBS Radio used to showcase - BBC Radio still offers both live and recorded Radio Plays, which is great, as this incredible form of entertainment is an endangered species.

Ah, and then there's CBC Radio's 'Northern Lights' - classical music to 'Brighten your night', with host Andrea Ritouski from CBC - Winnipeg.

God, I remember the days when it was CHUM, Rock 102, and Q107 that turned my crank. What's happening to me! I'm turning into my father! Aaaah! LOL.

There's also 'Brave New Waves' on Radio 2 from 12:00 - 4:00 am, interesting new music you won't hear anywhere else, sometimes it can be kind of freaky..
