Key Channel Radio on air this weekend

Dear Listeners, we're back. :-)

In these months of absence, we have renewed all our facilities and established a serious Internet connection in our "den". We are ready for our first broadcast of 2019 !!

As usual, we will be on the air almost all weekend with lots of beautiful music and interesting columns.

We will start with a blast from the past with an original 1978 Hit by ABC Radio, a station founded by Massi, which at that time "radiated", followed by two hours of beautiful music in the company of Massi.

Fixed address book now, that of the good Artem's World Music with a lot of beautiful Cuban music and an interesting overview of the island's broadcasting.

An hour of US Oldies selected by me and the last space, a fantastic range of beautiful songs from all over the world.

I am sure, dear friends, that you will follow us in many as you have always done in these two very beautiful years of transmissions.

Your reports give us so much enthusiasm, with some of you we are now friends, some will be in the future, all this is fantastic.

Good listening

Jasmine.
