radio six international

around the clock around the world


We welcome new listeners in Papua New Guinea. We're now being heard in 201 countries around the world.

Our Summer schedule has now begun. We can't bring you any new shows from some of our presenters at the moment because of the restrictions, but we're repeating the most recent series of programmes from Thea Newcomb who takes over the slots vacated by Ola's Kool Kitchen from this weekend. Thea will be back with a series of brand new shows staring in August. Although Karen Miller is no longer making her programme, we have some The Miller Tells Her Tale specials that have yet to be heard on radio six international, and we're broadcasting some of those over the summer, at 18:00 GMT (7pm UK) on Saturdays. Ewan Spence is back with some of the singers who ought to have been at Eurovision this year as the new series of Europe's Heartbeat continues with its Eurovision Showcase. And a brand new series of ambient mixes from our latest signing, DJ CVЯRIE, can be heard on Friday nights at 20:00 GMT and Saturday nights at 23:00 GMT starting this week.

Please note that our schedule times both online and in "Radio News" are always given in GMT = Greenwich Mean Time. For UK times, please add one hour.
