radio six international

around the clock around the world

Shortwave transmissions will return for an experiment next weekend. From transmitters in Sweden, and on a couple of frequencies in different bands, we offer an afternoon of programming from 14:00 to 16:00 GMT on Saturday, 25th April, aimed at listeners in Europe. (3 - 5pm UK time, 4 - 6pm Europe) Programme details on the April issue of Radio News. Hear us in the UK, Ireland and most of Western Europe on 9,405kHz (31.87m); and Scandanavia and Northern Europe on 3,975kHz (75.47m).



Fresh Garbage is back, and as usual our team of reviewers tell it like it is. This week, singer musician and producer Andy Park and next week singer-songwriter Rab Noakes will join Tony Currie to review the latest tracks. Hear the show on Saturdays at 07:00 GMT (8am UK, 9am Europe) with repeats on Sundays at 05:00 GMT (6am UK, 7am Europe) and 20:00 GMT (9pm UK, 10pm Europe) and Tuesdays at 19:00 GMT (8pm UK, 9pm Europe).



Tony Currie presents a brand-new weekly hour of classical music in Nothing But The Best on Fridays at 07:00 GMT with repeats on Saturdays and Sundays; this weekend's programme includes a rare interview with the late Friedrich Gulda who talks to Tony with musical illustrations. We had originally planned just four programmes, to run through April, but the series has proved popular and will continue through May.



Website updated at 12:39 GMT on Sunday, 19th April, 2015. Programme details updated.
