Station Summary

V08 was the Arabic language sibling of E09. Like E09 the schedule was erratic and had a poor AM signal. Originally this station used Eastern styled music as an interval, normally (like E25) music by Umm Kultum. Later in its existence it caused some confusion by switching to E09’s signature Magnetic Fields.
