It’s time for more nostalgia courtesy of another Radio Caroline North broadcast this weekend 13th-14th March.
We will again be land-based because of the current lockdown situation, but we do hope to be back on our radio ship Ross Revenge at some point soon.
Nevertheless you’ll still hear all the best music from the 60s – early 90s, plus the chance to win some wonderful prizes courtesy of listener Martin Allen from Tickhill, South Yorkshire.
Listen in on 648 AM in the South and South-East, on 1368 AM in the North and North-West courtesy of our friends at Manx Radio, the Radio Caroline app and around the world online here (via the Manx AM Radio Player).
We’d love to hear from you during the broadcast via email@example.com and remember, it’s the only email address that gets you straight through to our ‘North’ broadcasters.

531 kHz Radio Algérie Internationale (ex youth programme Jil FM, which continues to be heard on 549 kHz)
891 kHz Radio Algérie Internationale (ex Chaîne 1)
252 kHz (which used to carry foreign language external programming looooong ago in the evening) continues transmitting the French language Chaîne 1 (https://www.radioalgerie.dz/chaine3, Stream https://www.radioalgerie.dz/player/fr/live/chaine-3)
I was unable to find any information on the frequency changes at their website https://www.radioalgerie.dz, but I noticed that one can download their Journal du Sahel which is also broadcast on shortwave. https://www.radioalgerie.dz/rai/fr/le-journal-du-sahel

(CRTC) Reduction in local programming rejected for CKGM 690 Montreal.
Bell had applied for a condition of license amendment which would have allowed CKGM 690 in Montreal to reduce the amount of local programming broadcast from 96 hours to 63 hours per week. The CRTC is of the view that reducing CKGM’s local programming requirement is not appropriate for several reasons outlined in the decision.

To mark World Radio Day on Saturday 13 February 2021, the BBC World Service has some special content to be broadcast over the weekend.
BBC Minute on the BBC World Service is linking up with its partner radio stations in English and Spanish. DJs on English and Spanish-speaking stations around the world are going to be sharing their experiences and messages about their year of the pandemic. They will be brought together and shared across the day on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 February within BBC Minute’s news bulletins.
In addition, BBC World Service will air a one-hour documentary on Sunday 14 February, World Wide Waves: The Sounds of Community Radio. In this documentary for World Radio Day, we will visit community stations around the globe that educate, entertain and empower people to make change – including Radio Taboo in Cameroon, Kadal Osai (the sound of the ocean) in Tamil Nadu, and Radio Nacional de Huanuni in Bolivia. This documentary highlights the enduring power, possibilities and pleasures of the airwaves.
BBC News Arabic radio, one of the World Service’s oldest non-English radio stations, will also be delivering special content to mark the day. This will include asking listeners to record a one-minute clip explaining why radio still matters to them, with some selected for broadcast. The service will also be looking at women’s relationship with radio on daily programme Women Today and there will be an exploration of the role of audio in the digital age in the daily discussion programme, Hadeeth.
Mary Hockaday, Controller for BBC World Service English, says: “World Radio Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and highlight the power of radio to reach and connect many nations and communities around the world. In the last year, perhaps more than ever in an age of social distancing, we have needed the uniting force of radio to provide us with vital news, to entertain us and provide escapism, and to be a daily companion when we’ve been isolated from friends and family. I am delighted that the BBC World Service will be marking the day with special bulletins from BBC Minute, a one-hour radio documentary on BBC World Service English, and content on BBC News Arabic Radio”.

BELL pulls the plug on TSN in Hamilton, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
In a totally unexpected move Bell has dumped the TSN Sports programming on CKOC 1150 Hamilton, CKST 1040 Vancouver, and CFRW 1290 Winnipeg.
Bloomberg Business News has appeared on 1150 in Hamilton, while 1040 Vancouver and 1290 Winnipeg are running non-stop Classic Hits with announcements saying that something new will be coming this Friday. Those “in the know” are speculating an All Comedy format for both stations (FUNNY 1040 & FUNNY 1290).
