We have exciting plans for our Summer schedule starting on our 57th anniversary, June 6th. A brand new series of alternative music programmes is Ola's Kool Kitchen which will normally be heard at 22:00 GMT (11pm UK) on Saturday night, but the first show will air at 24:00 GMT on Saturday June 6th (1am UK Sunday); repeats at 07:00 GMT (8am UK, 7pm NZ) on Mondays. 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 in June, at 18:00 GMT (7pm UK) on Saturdays from June 6th. Jonathan Wolfert runs JAM Creative productions, the Dallas company that makes many of our jingles. They make jingles for radio stations around the world, and their predecessor, PAMS (Promotion and Marketing Services) made jingles for the number one US Top 40 station, WABC in New York City. Jon has produced a three-part WABC Jingle History that you can enjoy in June. Starts 11:00 GMT (Noon UK time) on Saturday June 6th with repeats on Sundays at 09:00 GMT (10am UK) and 23:00 GMT (Midnight Sunday UK time) and again on Wednesdays at 07:00 GMT (8am UK, 7pm NZ).



Advance notice for shortwave listeners that we'll be back on SW on Saturday, 6th June from 2200 - 2400 UTC on 6070kHz (49.39m) for a special 57th Anniversary live edition of Saturday Sounds with Tony Currie.



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.
