A feast of Cuban vocal music with Los Van Van for dessert…
From beautiful harmonies to stunning a cappella imitations of instruments, Cuba’s best vocal groups are a delight.
Our October 25 (October 24 in the Americas on WBCQ) program offers a few of them along with special guest Luz Divina Reyes, Director of Vocal Elé. We’ll include a little Los Van Van from the 90s, so come to listen, stay to dance.
Two options for listening on shortwave:
WBCQ, 7490 KHz, Tuesdays 0000-0100 UTC
(8pm-9pm EDT Mondays in the Americas)
Channel 292, 6070 KHz, Tuesdays 1900-2000 UTC
(2100-2200 CEST)
See the NOTES section of our Facebook page for instructions for listening online if you are out of range or don’t have a shortwave radio.

The upcoming time changes across the world will affect us as follows:
1.  The Channel 292 transmission will remain at 1900-2000 UTC, when the clocks change in Europe (Oct 30), this will mean 2000-2100 CET rather than 2100-2200 CEST).
2.  The WBCQ transmission will remain at 8pm Eastern time US, which means that when the clocks change  in the US  (November 6), we will be from 0100-0200 UTC
