Swedish Radio - Another SWBC Bites the Dust

On Halloween of this year, the trick is on Sveriges Radio International listeners.  Per the R. Sweden web site, that's the last day of MW and SW international broadcasting.

Swedish Radio’s international broadcasts on short and medium wave will close down from October 31, 2010. This is part of a decision by Swedish Radio’s management on our output and distribution announced on March 16 this year.

This means that from October 31, Radio Sweden’s programming in English will be broadcast nationally (on FM), as well as available on the Internet, and our podcast will be available here and on iTunes for downloading.
 So it goes.
