Blue Danube Radio (BDR) was an English-language radio station broadcast by the Österreichischer Rundfunk ("Austrian Broadcasting", ORF).

History of Blue Danube Radio[edit]

Blue Danube Radio went live on 23 August 1979, created principally for the United Nations community at UNO-City in Vienna. It was popular with many Austrian people too. From 1995, it shared airtime with FM4, which eventually completely took over on February 1, 2000. Favourite programmes included Continental Breakfast, Soft Sound Café, Drive Time, Today@Six, and Sunday Brunch. Many of the people who worked for BDR moved to FM4. Notables include David Halliwell, Paul Catty, Joe Remick, John Wilde, Joanna Bostock, Jill Zobel, Ellis Hill, Stuart Freeman, Dale Winton,[1] Graham Knight, Paul Holmes, John Brocks and Katya Adler. It also syndicated Casey Kasem's Top 40 (American hit parade), and a short programme called Passport encouraged the study of foreign languages.
