radio six international

around the clock around the world


Following the sad news of the death on 8th August at the age of 81 of singer and songwriter Lamont Dozier of the Holland, Dozier, Holland songwriting partnership, Kenny Tosh will pay tribute in this week's Revival Show at 19:00 GMT on Thursday 11th August, with repeats on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We're taking it easy over the summer, so the Random Playlist will be updated from time to time, but not every week; until September when the weekly updates will resume.

Because our affiliate in Australia, Unique Radio, is experiencing some technical issues, the rebroadcasts on shortwave will be off the air for some weeks. We'll give details when they resume.

Coming in September.....The Tony Currie Show returns.....brand-new Pluggin Baby Radio Show with Emma Scott....Cherry Red Radio is back.....another chance to enjoy our musical sitcom set on a fictitious pirate radio ship, Pirate Pops....the return of Europe's Heartbeat with Ewan Spence, Golden Days with Alan Thompson and all the regulars.

Last updated at 14:34 GMT on Wednesday 17th August 2022. Programme schedule updated.

Programmes often didn't begin until 5pm and the entire daytime was given over to the pattern and music. Our record label, Lounge Music has put together an album of some of the original music from these days and it's available now on Amazon and other download sites.
