Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, David Iurescia (LW4DAF), who writes:

Today the listeners of the Spanish service of Radio Bulgaria found a sad new in the website:

After the cessation of Radio Bulgaria short-wave broadcasts in 2012, the time has come when our programs will no longer be heard on the web. As of June 1, 2017, by decision of the Bulgarian National Radio Directive, of which Radio Bulgaria is part, the voice of this station will be extinguished. However, they will be able to continue reading our articles and to know the news about the happening in this country in our web site during a couple of months more.

For us journalists from Radio Bulgaria, programs abroad have meant much more than conventional notions about radio journalism, since it has been our mission, our link with the world, our relationship with foreigners eager to know more about the History, culture and traditions of Bulgaria.

Thank you for having been with us for all these years.

Please try to write to the radio and authorities for supporting to RB.
Yours from Argentina

Many thanks for passing along this news, David.

This reminds me of the final broadcast of Radio Bulgaria which I recorded over five years ago. Hard to believe it was that long ago:

    This is what happens when you cease broadcasting on the terrestial airwaves and move to the netherworld of the web, you lose your audience.
