Radio Sweden plans special broadcast September 3

On Wednesday, 3 September Radio Sweden will be celebrating its 70th birthday with special broadcasts, a panel discussion, and live music. The first English broadcast of the day, at 1230 UTC, will be a live programme from Studio 5 at Broadcasting House in Stockholm. Radio Sweden will be looking back at some of the major stories it has covered over the years, and talking with many guests, including some well-known Radio Sweden voices from the past.
That will be followed by a special panel debate in Swedish with a number of cultural and media personalities. The 1400 UTC Swedish broadcast will also be live from Studio 5.
The entire special programme, from 1230 to 1630 UTC, will be carried live in a special web broadcast. Listeners in North America can hear the 1230 English broadcast on 15240 kHz shortwave.
