    I know very few people that enjoyed listening to Radio Kuwait as much as I did, no matter what though, this is some of the best shortwave news I’ve ever heard. Back in 2014 I would turn on my radio every single afternoon and listen to the full 3 hour English Service on 15540 kHz, I enjoyed the news broadcasts, the cultural programs from the GCC and the musical variety of course!

    I couldn’t be happier, it’s so rare for a shortwave station to come back to the airwaves – especially with it being the one I missed the most. It’s excellent news and I look so forward to listening to them again soon.

    Since I have the luxury of being retired and able to play radio in the afternoon this is great news. I hope they come back with the same kind of programming and time slot they had in the past. I started listening to them in the afternoon because there was nothing else on the airwaves besides you know who. I soon became a regular when they had a soap opera type of radio play every day. It was just a great well rounded station reminiscent of days gone by. Kudo’s to them for not following the same negative course as all the stations lost lately.
