radio six international

around the clock around the world

Don't miss your favourite programme!! Seasonal clock changes will be taking place in many parts of the world over the next few weeks. It should be noted that all year round, we give our programme times in Greenwich Mean Time (also known as UTC) in both our schedule pages on this website and in our printed programme guide Radio News. In Northern hemisphere countries, this usually means clocks go forward, so regular programmes will appear an hour later than usual; in Southern hemisphere countries the reverse applies and regular programmes will be heard an hour earlier than before. There are, however, some exceptions - Soundwave and The Lively Lounge swap their places in the weekend schedule from Saturday, March 25th, with the Lounge being broadcast first. This change doesn't affect weekday transmissions; but from April 3rd our morning programmes move to 07:00 GMT and this will mean that programmes currently being heard in the UK at 6.00am will instead be heard at 8.00am. Please check the times of your favourite programmes in the current programme guide.

Our focus on International music continues as our station remains one of the very few to programme music of all genres from around the world. Every day from 00:00 GMT, Random Play brings you a hand picked selection of new music from unsigned, self published and indie acts. The 50 tracks in our current playlist represent 23 countries.

And talking of the World, here are our current Top Ten countries - the parts of the globe listening longest this month. 1) Great Britain 2) United States of America 3) Ukraine 4) Russian Federation 5) Germany 6) Netherlands 7) Canada 8) Israel 9) France 10) Ireland
