We’re back! After our summer hiatus, Dialogos Radio is back and set to launch the 2014-15 broadcast season, with more exciting interviews, cultural segments, and musical programming set to come your way!
This season, we are happy to announce that the Dialogos Radio broadcast network has grown, as we have added stations in Sydney, Darwin, and Wollongong (Australia), Hania and Rethymno (Crete), Greece and in Halifax (Nova Scotia), Canada! Our Greek-language broadcasts will now be heard each Saturday at 2 pm local Sydney time on 2MM Radio (1665 AM Sydney, 1656 AM Darwin, 99.3 FM Wollongong), each Sunday morning at 10 am Greek time on Kriti FM 101.5, broadcasting from the city of Hania to the entire Hania and Rethymno regions, and our English-language broadcasts will be heard on CKDU 88.1 FM in Halifax every early Friday morning at 2:30 am Atlantic time. The programming of these stations is also streamed online on the websites of the respective stations. Additionally, our Greek-language programs will now complement our English-language broadcasts on KVRX Radio in Austin, Texas, having been added to the station’s lineup on Monday mornings at 9 am Central time. Our broadcasts are now heard on 14 stations worldwide, and further expansion of our network is forthcoming…stay tuned for details!
To kick off our broadcast season, we will feature a reairing of our interview with filmmaker Lamprini Thoma, producer of the acclaimed Greek documentary Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre. This is part of Dialogos Radio’s media sponsorship of the U.S. screening tour of Palikari, which will take place in September and October in cities across the United States! Musically, we will also feature some music from the recently departed Antonis Vardis, one of the biggest names in Greek music of the past few decades.
We will also be adding a new feature to our broadcasts this season, the commentary of the week, where we will offer brief, opinionated viewpoints on matters pertaining to Greece and to the worldwide Greek community. And, in addition, we will offer our usual quality mix of Greek music from multiple genres and eras, as well as occassional cultural segments! And once again, our podcasts, our mobile apps for Android, Kindle, and BlackBerry devices, our on-demand programming, and our online radio station Dialogos Radio 24/7 will be fully operational and available across various multimedia platforms, allowing you to take our programming anywhere with you, across the world!
Finally, we will be launching the 2014-15 broadcast season with the first-ever Dialogos Radio fundraiser, where we will turn to you, our loyal listeners across the world, to help support us and our programming. Dialogos Radio is a non-profit, non-commercial radio program which is run entirely by volunteers, and whose operating expenses have grown signficantly as our program and our related ventures have expanded. We have a number of exciting premiums available in exchange for your contribution, and more details about the fundraiser are forthcoming.
We are excited to be back on the air again, and look forward to your feedback, comments, and support!
