The Delano team is back on the Luxembourg airwaves, with a new slot on Ara City Radio every Monday morning.

Following an 18-month stint on 100,7’s English-language magazine shows that ended earlier this year, the Delano team returns to the airwaves on 4 October as guests of a new slot on Ara City Radio’s breakfast show.

Delano’s Top Of The Week will feature a journalist talking with an Ara City Radio presenter about the top story of the week in Luxembourg, suggesting three top events from Delano’s Ten Things To Do and also choosing Delano’s top track, book, film, podcast or TV show recommendation.

“After a year and a half of nothing much happening in Luxembourg, we all need tips about exciting events going on in Luxembourg, and this will set listeners up for the week,” says Ara City coordinator Lisa McLean. “It will also give us an insight into stories that the Delano team are working on. I particularly enjoy the music, film and literature tips that the Delano team brought to readers during the height of the pandemic, so on a personal level, I am hoping for some sneaky suggestions in that direction."

Delano’s Duncan Roberts says that the slot will give listeners a solid briefing of what lies ahead as they start their week. “We are looking forward to talking about one of the main stories that we will focus on over the next five days. There is always plenty to discuss about the hot topics of the day, whether that be national political or business developments, an international story that impacts the grand duchy or an inspiring new trend that will make a difference in our lives. Delano, like Ara City Radio, provides an essential service to the international community and helps non-natives integrate by keeping them informed and giving context to the big news stories.”

The chance to showcase some of the exciting events taking place in Luxembourg is also part of Delano’s brief. “The local culture scene is fantastic and has so much to offer,” says Duncan. “I personally find it absurd when people say there’s nothing to do here.”
