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 7 years.
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 weather report, snow report, what’s on and international news is broadcast on Radio Meribel every morning between 8 & 9 and again between 5 and 7 in the evening. Bulletins are then repeated all day long.
Benji is the French manager and main man for the music as he does most of the programming. Music content is decided jointly by Radio Meribel-Radio La Plagne-Radio Tignes, Briançon, Radio les Alpes du Sud. Amy is the lovely girl doing all the English broadcasts each day. (with a very cheerful voice)
All the stations share the same music program, and UK news.
