They obviously got evicted so Abu Dhabi could put their classical/jazz programme there. Seems to include Suzie Wonder ex Radio 2 also! Maybe their contract was up on 30th June?

BBC is now on 90.3 along with an interfering station so reception is pretty poor at times and also the quality of the feed signal is crap.

This is the reply I got from the BBC. Times are obviously hard.

BBC World Service in English and BBC Arabic are no longer available on

> Due to pressures on budgets for distribution of our radio services at
> BBC World Service, we were unfortunately unable to reach a financial

> distribution at a time of increasing costs of licences generally around
> the world, especially in that part of the Middle East.
>
> BBC World Service in English and BBC Arabic can still be heard on 90.3
> FM from Abu Dhabi in parts of Dubai. BBC World News and BBC Arabic
> television are available on the Nilesat, Arabsat and Hot Bird
> satellites, as well as on E Vision.
>
> BBC World Service in English is available 24 hours a day online via the
