radio six international

around the clock around the world

It is with great sadness that we report the death on Saturday, 21st February, of our dear friend David Ades, host of The Golden Age... programmes. It is ironic that David's last show for us was transmitted this weekend. He was a kind and generous man, and wonderful company, and will be much missed by us all at radio six international. There's a final chance to hear our special Tribute programme at 09:00 GMT today.



We're paying tribute to the late Gary Owens who was heard every week in our Revival Show. The talented, funny and generous broadcaster was one of the best known voices in the USA and well beyond, and today at 11:00 GMT, Kenny Tosh will present one of Gary's Soundtrack To The Sixties radio shows as the second part of his appreciation of the man who died a fortnight ago.



Back in the schedule is a series originally made in 1985 featuring some of the best recordings of the big bands from the 30s and 40s. Legendary broadcaster Clem Ashby who died in 1986, traces the history of the bands with some first hand anecdotes on the way. Time Was... can be heard on Saturdays at 07:00 GMT, Sundays at 05:00 and 20:00 GMT, and Tuesdays at 19:00 GMT.



Website updated at 08:26 GMT on Sunday, 1st March, 2015. Programme details updated.
