Show of the Week: Radio Bruxxsel

Belgium Stamp

Radio Bruxxsel, which airs every Friday at 8AM this summer, brings a multilingual mix of the fun and familiar from far away places. An homage to the trilingual and fun-loving kingdom of Belgium, we play retro, indie rock, nordic pop, french new wave, tropical beats, 80s & 90s dance, german synth, random selections from around Europe and beyond, in as many languages as possible.

We take our inspiration from Brussels, Belgium’s officially bilingual capital. Also the seat of the European Union, you can hear all the languages of Europe in its de-facto capital city. Brussels is also home to immigrants from around the world, so it’s not unusual to hear people speaking in the tongues of Africa, South America and Asia. This polyglot mix has inspired us to produce a multilingual hour of music every week this summer on WOBC.

Your hosts DJs Marceleaux and Miguelito will be playin a special all-Belgian edition this Friday July 19 in honor of the Belgian National Holiday. Belgium, that little country wedged between the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg and France, known worldwide for its beers, its fries, its waffles, and comic strip culture (think Smurfs, Tintin), has also produced an incredible amount of amazing music over the years. Some music you might even love and not know it’s Belgian. Technotronic and Jacques Brel come to mind. We will be playing a tiny selection of Belgian hits, in Dutch and French, the languages the majority of Belgians speak at home, but also in German, Spanish, and of course, in English, which many a Belgian artist make use of in their music. A set that will scream, Happy Birthday Belgium!
