around the clock around the world

To allow for essential engineering work on our mains power supply, there will be a break of up to an hour in our broadcasts on Monday between 12:00 and 18:00 GMT. All streams will be affected.

It's time for us to begin the process of choosing the Record of the Year 2015 once again. As with last year, we're giving the decision to our production team, who will listen to the twenty nominees and rate them using a range of criteria. The final order of the 20 nominees (along with the all important name of the winner) will be announced in a special programme at 23:00 GMT on Hogmanay. But first of all, we'll announce the names of the 20 nominees (chosen from the 200 or so tracks that have entered the playlist this year) at the halfway point of the Tony Currie Show on Saturday at 07:00 GMT, Sunday at 05:00 and 20:00 GMT and Tuesday at 19:00 GMT. And we'll publish the list here as well.

Welcome to new listeners in Bonaire, Curacao and Guinea-Bissau. We're now being listened to in 198 countries around the world.

We're reprising the entire series of 54 programmes of The Golden Age of Light Music written and hosted by the late David Ades who died earlier this year. The programmes will air on Saturdays at 10:00 GMT, Sundays at 08:00 and 23:00, and on Tuesdays at 06:00 GMT.

Website updated at 00:52 GMT on Friday, 27th November, 2015. Programme details updated.
