The Sun Lounge now on the BBC 

It is so good to have the UK's BBC network pick up the show and each week chill out its listeners on BBC Sounds, and terrestrially across the Channel Islands on BBC Jersey, and BBC Guernsey. The show is a little different to what you hear on the independent version, but you get to hear all the same tracks and more through the BBC's online and mobile player, BBC Sounds. Give it a whirl. 

Tropical Destinations 

Whether it's Venice, Capri, Malibu, or Madeira, each week The Sun Lounge takes you to the most exotic destinations. In each episode, we help you explore your world with music and artists from all around the world, and even have experts and guide book publishers on the show who travel the world and uncover the world's unspoilt secrets and exotic adventures. The best part - let the music take you there real time!
