radio six international

around the clock around the world

Note time changes next weekend. Clocks change in many parts of the world, and we continue to schedule our programmes using GMT/UTC which means that UK listeners will find most of their favourite programmes start an hour earlier from Sunday 29th october. However, there are some other changes. Soundwave will swap places with The Lively Lounge at the weekend, so you'll now hear Soundwave at 08:00 GMT (8am UK) on Saturdays (except this weekend when that translates to 9am UK); and 06:00 GMT (6am UK) and 21:00 GMT (9pm UK) on Sundays. Monday's transmission remains at 19:00 GMT (7pm UK). The Lively Lounge moves to 09:00 GMT (9am UK) Saturdays (except this week when it translates to 10am UK) and 07:00 GMT (7am UK) and 22:00 GMT (10pm UK) on Sundasy; Thursdays it remains at 06:00 GMT (6am UK).

Some splendid radio coming your way over the next few weeks....guesting on the Tony Currie Show on Saturday is the legendary Petula Clark who is currently touring the UK. On November 18th, the Lively Lounge will include special guest Richard Niles talking about his new Bandzilla album on the day of its release. And later that same weekend, on November 20th, we will once again broadcast the Grand Final of this year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest live from Malta, and for the six days leading up to it we'll be live from the radio six international studios in Malta with all the previews, news and gossip about the Contest from our team on the spot. And stand by for some very exciting news about this year's Record of the Year competition, the results of which will be announced on December 25th. This year's voting panel will include some of the very biggest names in the music business!
