As the name suggests, Costa Blanca Radio broadcasts, in principle, throughout the entire Spanish Costa Blanca. However the reception is occasionally obstructed by the mountains. Costa Blanca Radio is originally a Dutch-language station, but obviously our aim is to offer an enjoyable music experience to all nationalities living on the Costa Blanca.
You can listen to our station from Alicante to Gandia, which for the permanent residents is from Marina Baja (Benidorm) to Marina Alta (Denia). CBR is broadcast in the Marina Alta on 97.6 FM and in the Marina Baja on 101.4 FM.
Rick van Velthuysen is responsible for the music selection which is specifically compiled for everybody from 9 to 90 years old; which is not an easy task! Yet his success is evident in the fact that not only the Dutch listeners tune in to CBR, but judging from the countless messages we receive, so do many Spanish listeners, as well as German and UK expats. The fact that we play many catchy tunes of singles you might not have heard in a long time, gives people a good feeling and lets them remember “the good old days”.
You can listen to CBR 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 97.6 FM and 101.4 FM, with an occasionally break for advertisements. Yet our first priority is always an enjoyable listening experience. Currently, we only play music. We don’t provide news and weather reports, because nowadays you can get that information through your smartphone or iPad.
For those of you who miss listening to us when you are no longer on the Costa Blanca, you can keep listening to our music by tuning into CBR through the media player on this website or via TuneIn.

We wish you a lot of fun listening to our station!
