Radio Stations in Dubai and UAE

As a generalisation, Dubai and UAE radio stations tend to be fairly droll - at least the English language ones - but every now and then there's a show or DJ worth tuning in to. Below is a list of a few possible English language radio choices in the UAE to entertain you.

Note that during mourning periods, when rulers or their close family have passed away, UAE radio stations suspend normal programming and play subdued music as a sign of respect. The daytime BBC World Service broadcast usually continues unchanged though.

Occasionally Dubai DJs get in to trouble for making inappropriate comments on air - Chris Fisher of 92.0 FM in April 2006 made an April Fools joke that Robbie Williams had cancelled his concert in Dubai. The DJ was suspended, not apparently for the wind-up, but for commenting on it after the management had told him not to.

Jonathan Miles was another DJ who managed to get himself into a bit of bother back in 2004 when he was working for Channel 4 out of Ajman. His entertaining and irreverent chat saw him taken off air, reinstated, and eventually booted out for good. Many residents miss his perverted sense of humour and were dismayed to see him fired.
