The Show: The Shipping Forecast.

The BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. ASMR before ASMR even existed. Short cryptic predictions for little-known geographical locations (South Utsire anyone?), snippets of the Forecast are sprinkled throughout today’s show.

If these excerpts do give you that ASMR “low grade euphoria” help yourself to 5 hour or even 9 hour YouTube compilations.

Personal favourite from this playlist is “The Flood” by Haiku Salut, part of their reimagined soundtrack to the 1926 Buster Keaton film “The General”. So feel free to spend the rest of your week trying to sync up the entire score on Spotify with a totally legit free stream of the movie*.
