radio six international

around the clock around the world

We're into the New Year and that means a new season on radio six international. The regular shows continue, and after a brief holiday to allow him time to recover from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Ewan Spence is back with his weekly digest of all things musically Euro, Europe's Heartbeat which returns to its regular slot with the first broadcast on Saturdays at 10:00 GMT. Ron Seeth made his debut on the station in 1985 but hasn't been heard since - but he's back at long last with a brand new series Ron Seeth's Nostalgia Show the perfect adjunct to Kenny Tosh. With hits (and misses), commercials, TV clips and themes from past years you can enjoy Ron's new show on Saturdays at 12:00 GMT with repeats thereafter - check the schedule for details. And returning after several years radio silence are Paul Higginbotham and Spike Nesmith for our own weekly review chat show from the USA, Too Grumpy Critics. First broadcast each week will be on Saturday at 20:00 GMT, with repeats on Sundays and Wednesdays.

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 20 countries, with songs in English, French, Georgian, Malagasy, Serbian and Welsh.

Website last updated at 14:49 GMT on Saturday, 21st January 2017. Programme details updated.
