Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Kris Partridge, who shares the following:
Just heard a trail for this BBC World Service Radio programme to be broadcast at 12h00 UTC this coming Saturday, 12 February 2022.
Here is the background of the programme:
For World Radio Day 2022, we tune in to some more small radio stations around the world that connect communities, spark conversations, keep traditions alive, empower their listeners and spread happiness with music and stories. From Aboriginal radio in Australia to a community station in India run by rural women from the lowest Dalit caste to a prison station in Texas that gives a voice to inmates on death row, the airwaves carry intimate wisdom, vital knowledge, beats and tunes that keep reminding us who we are.
Here is a link to the programme on BBC Sounds. Obviously the programme will not be available before broadcast, but will on-line be for some time after.
Should the blog readers not hear over the air ‘direct’ the 12h06 UTC broadcast there are repeats on Sunday, 13 at 03h06, 15h06 & 17h06 UTC, Wednesday, 16 at 10h06 UTC & Thursday, 17 at 00h06 UTC.
