After suffering from insomnia, John Watson founded Sleep Radio, a station dedicated to helping people sleep, as reported by

A bad case of insomnia has resulted in a not-for-profit radio station designed to put listeners to sleep.

John Watson founded Sleep Radio a year ago after being diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety, which led to sleeplessness.

“I’d lay in bed for hours and hours at night staring at the ceiling,” he said.

“I had to do something about it.”

With 18 years’ experience as a cinema projectionist and working in theatre, Watson had the skills to set up the radio station, so decided to give it a go.

Sleep Radio has no advertisements or DJ, playing non-stop ambient music to help those with insomnia find relaxation and sleep.
