Until January 2010 each continuity announcer was associated with themed blocks of programming and were promoted as personalities and presenters subsequently Radio 7 adopted more traditional continuity using one presenter to announce every programme throughout the day. - link icon read more about BBC Radio 4 Extra on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Radio 4 Extra is a digital only service so will not be found on an FM radio, it is only being broadcast via DAB.

Niall: Radio 4 is found at channel 0104 on Sky boxes (or 0143 for LW version) although you've posted on the Radio 4 Extra page which is found at 0131 on Sky. Both versions of Radio 4 (plus Radio 4 Extra and several other BBC radio stations) are broadcast on 10.788GHz V satellite frequency from the 28E orbital position (although you should not need to tune Radio 4 manually on any Sky box).
