Radio Damascus in English
There is no homepage of Radio Damascus´ foreign language programmes, let alone audio files for download.
Radio Damascus broadcasts in English from 20:05 to 21:00 Greenwich Mean Time, and from 21:10 to 22:10 GMT
Short wave: 9330 kHz, 12085 kHz, 13610 kHz.
|Radio Damascus is mainly a broadcaster of official statements and views. Culture is no big issue, and Alepposeife or Aleppo soap may not be one at all. But if you are interested in learning which organisations count as resistance fighters in official Syria, and which would rather be rebels, Radio Damascus will tell you.|
