♦ Radio Meribel started in 1988 in a small studio in Brides les Bains, with a great vinyl collection. It moved in to the tourist office in 1989. Now all the radio programs are played via the computer system.
♦ On Xmas day 1989, Rob Smart the editor of Meribel Unplugged made the very first English weather broadcast, and went on to have his own morning spots and an evening music show for 11 years. (He is now back by request for 2023 season!!)
♦ Since then, over the years, the English input has grown immensely, in line with growth of UK visitors.
♦ The music at night is sometimes also very good. Make sure you tune in.
♦ Useful information, such as a regional brief weather report, snow & piste report for Meribel & daily what’s on, is broadcast on Radio Meribel every morning between 8 & 9 and repeated at the times listed below till 12 midday. Then again between 4pm and 8 in the evening are updated versions.
