The time for the EDXC 2019 conference is fast approaching. 35 people are attending, from many European countries and also Japan and the USA. It should be a feast of interesting radio chat, amazing scenery and good food and drink.  We look forward to meeting up with old friends and making new ones.

The conference agenda has a couple of exciting amendments. We now have Brian Powell of Radio Free Asia Skyping in to talk about RFA Today and Tracy Wood talking about Spain’s Broadcasting Scene.

See you in Andorra!
