Hello

I would like to hear about your suggestions regarding German radio stations. I am currently learning German, I adore the language and I love DW radio but would like to expand my horizons.

Thanks!

Yolanda

WDR5 Jun 21, 2007

Hi Yolanda,

you could give WDR 5 a try. Lots of news and reports, not too much music, the occasional radio play and comedy, stock market information...

Some of the content you can download as podcast.

For more information see:

DLF & DRADIO Jun 21, 2007

Dear Yolanda,

When it comes to use of language, Deutschlandfunk (DLF) and Deutschlandradio (DRADIO) are definitely the best radio programmes in Germany.
I'm listening to the radio a lot (mainly when I'm in my car), and I listen to DLF almost exclusively. It has a lot of advantages:

- almost no music during daytime (none of the boring heavy rotation stuff)
- 15-20 minutes of news every hour
- very interesting programmes: science, culture, news, politics, music...
- elaborate language (compared to commercial radio)

and so on.

You can listen to a webstream (DLF and DRADIO) on www.dradio.de

Enjoy!

Kind regards,
Erik

Thank you for all the links and opinions. They are highly appreciated. But for the sake of being inclusive, I would like to hear about Austrian and Swiss radio stations too if possible.

Hi there!

You can access the stations via www.aol.de It's for free. I especially like the German category "Liedermacher" there. It's off the hook!

Austrian radio Jun 22, 2007

When I lived in Graz, I used to listen to O3 (oe3.orf.at) and Antenne Steiermark. It is good to get some regional flavour when you're learning a language.

If you have an ipod, you can subscribe to the Deutsche Welle Podcasts, as I do.
