Flemish station Nostalgie has introduced three new weekend programs. Former NRJ presenter Ken Siereveld kicks off weekend nights with “Ken you feel it?” — a three-hour show on Saturday and Sunday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. At 28, Ken is the station’s youngest presenter and his show features “pleasure-playback” and party music.
Saturday night sees veteran Nostalgie presenter Tony Talboom, who has been on the station since 2017, host “Let’s Dance” — a collection of Saturday night vibes.
Under the banner “Flirten met Fleur” (Flirting with Fleur), actress and singer Fleur Brusselmans hosts a dating show with a twist: “Expect the unexpected.” The show, which features a weekly guest for a date, includes dating bloopers with love and relationships cooking in the background. The show runs between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Sundays.
The station’s TOP 3000, aired in March, was a huge success and became the main engine for Nostalgie’s new weekend roster. “Both in terms of music as audience interaction, the TOP 3000 was a hit,” commented Jo Nachtergaele, Nostalgie station manager. “With ‘Simply the Best Weekend’ (Saturdays and Sundays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.), we draw from our catalog of songs and stories to bring the best possible radio show. Together with the new weekend radio formats, we want to make Nostalgie’s weekend a sparkling one.”
Nachtergaele added that the recent CIM ratings showed a substantial boost in audience for (digital-only station) Nostalgie+, with a total of 363,000 listeners. “This brings Nostalgie+ in the Top 5 of digital stations in Flanders,” he enthused.
The 8th edition of the Nostalgie Beach festival is set for Aug. 4–5, with artists like Texas, Billy Ocean, Arsenal and Starsailor.
