Radio station designed to put you to sleep

Do you have trouble getting to sleep?

Well, a Te Aroha man has created the world’s only radio station designed to help people get off to sleep.

The idea for Sleep Radio came to John Watson after he struggled to get to sleep. He was told to listen to ambient music.

So Mr. Watson created an ad-free internet radio station for insomniacs. He has been inundated with work from composers who’ve created music to fall asleep.

“It’s non-vocal – it has to be instrumental; it has to be very downbeat,” said Mr Watson.

Sleep radio could have made him rich, but he says money’s not the point.
