around the clock around the world

New series of Fresh Garbage has started. 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).

Back this month, after an absence of 35 years, 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. Also back on Saturdays at 14:30 GMT and Sundays at 12:30 GMT are the original recordings of Currie's Kitchen, the cookery series first broadcast in 1978. These will continue until June; plus another chance to enjoy our five part sitcom series The Wild Years.

Shortwave transmissions will return for an experiment shortly. From transmitters in Sweden, and on a couple of frequencies in different bands, we plan 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 and Western Europe on 9,405kHz (31.87m) and Scandanavia and Northern Europe on 3,975kHz (75.47m).

Website updated at 16:40 GMT on Friday, 17th April, 2015. SW frequency updated; Programme details updated.
