radio six international

around the clock around the world

Remember the days when radio programmes began with catchy little theme tunes? Well, yes, of course, quite a few of our programmes still do, but we're thinking of the days in the 50s, 60s and 70s when programmes on the wireless (and we mean a time when wireless = the BBC!) began with recognisable tunes. You've probably guessed where this is leading - The Lively Lounge is devoting an entire hour to radio themes. The show can be heard on Friday 6th February at 19:00 GMT with the usual repeats on Saturday, Sunday and Thursday.



Our series devoted to the dance bands of the 30s and 40s, The Golden Age of The Dance Bands has proved successful, and so David Ades is following up the current repeat season with brand-new programmes starting next weekend. Tune in at 07:00 GMT on Saturdays, with repeats on Sundays at 05:00 and 20:00 and Tuesdays at 19:00 GMT



Website updated at 12:28 GMT on Saturday 31st January, 2015. Programme details updated.
