Radio Seagull goes offshore

The radio ship Jenni Baynton, home of Dutch station Radio Seagull is anchored 15 miles out at sea. As we have one or two live shows from the ship every evening, there is a change of programming. Some shows can be heard at other times, some presenters have taken the opportunity of shore leave and their shows will be back after the ship has returned to her home port.

The offshore project runs from May 22nd and the final broadcast from the ship will be June 4th. Radio Seagull's sister station Radio Waddenzee, who broadcasts on 1602 AM from 7 am till 7 pm, will close down the offshore adventure June 5th at 19.00 CET.

When at sea Radio Seagull has a special e-mail address for listeners to send messages and requests to: offshore(at)radioseagull.com
