How many British stations are still active?

Can we expect some more to return for some Christmas programmes for all of us who don't speak Dutch??

Off the top of my head: Bogusman, Merlin, Laser, Geronimo are on fairly regularly.

Other ones I've heard this year include (but not been on regularly) are WMR, WNKR, Underground, Pandora, Rapido.

XTC might also make an appearance.

Obviously Holland still rules the waves for numbers of SW stations, probably followed by Germany. The UK probably next.

Then there's other countries like Ireland, Greece, Italy, Spain, Norway, Finland with may be one or two free radio stations on SW.
