Welcome to Radio Northern Europe International

Radio Northern Europe International is the shortwave show playing the best new pop, dance and traditional music from Norway 🇳🇴 , the UK 🇬🇧 , Ireland 🇮🇪 , Denmark 🇩🇰 , Sweden 🇸🇪 , Finland 🇫🇮 and Iceland 🇮🇸 to the world!

Our RNEI shows are a 30 minute journey through a blend of lesser known new music from Northern Europe in varying languages and styles coupled with an embedded digital-mode playlist and a small amount of talk to keep everything flowing nicely. RNEI xtra gives listeners the opportunity to hear shows from other fantastic presenters for our broadcasts that are 1 hour long.

We release a new show on the first Sunday of every month at 11:00UTC on 6070KHz shortwave for Central Europe and it is re-broadcast many times throughout the month on various frequencies from many different transmitters across the world. You can see all the ways to listen to us by clicking here (We even have Spotify playlists)!

It’s always nice reading the reactions to our broadcasts, we’ve received really helpful and wonderful feedback from listeners.
