radio six international

around the clock around the world


Springsapoppin'! And the annual ritual of world clock confusion is nearly upon us. This year we're doing something slightly different with our schedules. Although we always stick to GMT for our transmission times, and in our online and printed schedules, we do make some small changes. As usual the early morning (GMT) programme that currently airs at 06:00 will move to 07:00 from Sunday 7th April, which is when clocks in Australia and new Zealand go back an hour. That way listeners in the Pacifica region will still find programmes at their usual times locally.

But we've also traditionally swapped The Lively Lounge and John Cavanagh's Soundwave when UK clocks go forward, in order to keep the Sunday night Lounge at the same UK time all year round. Unfortunately the knock-on effect of this has been to displace Soundwave by two hours in all of its weekend timeslots. Not this year, though. Here's how things will change. Saturday and Sunday daytime (GMT) will remain the same all year round and Soundwave will precede The Lively Lounge. Therefore in the UK all of our programmes will start an hour earlier than in the winter. But the exception will be Sunday night (GMT) when programmes will retain their UK time zone slot and therefore start an hour earlier GMT.

Current times on Sunday evening are: 19:00 GMT/19:00 UK: The Miller Tells Her Tale 21:00 GMT/21:00 UK: Soundwave 22:00 GMT/22:00 UK: The Lively Lounge and 23:00 GMT/23:00 UK: The Golden Age of Light Music. From March 31st these will change as follows - 18:00 GMT/19:00 UK: The Miller Tells Her Tale 20:00 GMT/21:00 UK: Soundwave 21:00 GMT/22:00 UK: The Lively Lounge 22:00 GMT/23:00 UK: The Golden Age of Light Music and 23:00 GMT/00:00 UK: Love at the Movies. Full details of these changes online and in the April issue of "Radio News".

From March 18th, both The Lively Lounge and John Cavanagh's Soundwave will be available in the Paisley and Glasgow, Scotland area on 107.5FM and DAB from the new station Paisley FM.

There are still many fans of the music that was featured as background to the BBC test card transmissions in the 60s. Programmes often didn't begin until 5pm and the entire daytime was given over to the pattern and music.
