The UK commercial broadcaster Big L, which uses a mediumwave transmitter in the Netherlands on 1395 kHz, has decided to introduce a programme in Dutch, which will be aired on Mon-Fri at 0300-0400 UTC in the morning, when most Dutch people are still asleep. It appears that the programme is aimed at Dutch-speaking truckers in and around the Netherlands. According to the website mediumwave.info:
“Eric van Willegen told me that Big L 1395 AM will launch a new programme starting Monday the 1st of October 2007. The name of the programme is “Big L Goes Dutch”. It’s a mix of oldies, truckin’ songs and a few Dutch songs.”
At the time of posting this item, there is no mention of the programme on the Big L website, though it has been heavily promoted on air over the past few days.
