Dutch Café Radio Committee
The Dutch Café Radio Committee is responsible for making the Dutch Café Radio Show! This is a bi-weekly show where we play songs requested by members, have brief interviews with members, do fun Dutch quizzes and games, and share about news and activities in the Dutch Language Café.

A broadcast from our members
Listen here to our very own radio show! Every other week, two DLC members take on the roles of Radio DJs to go on air with Dutch Café Radio. They play music selected by our members, listen to their interesting stories and play some exciting games.
All is focused on being suitable for Dutch language learners, making this a great learning tool.

History of Dutch Café Radio
When the prime minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte announced the latest string of measures against COVID-19 at a press conference on 3 November 2020, there was no other choice than closing the Dutch Language Café.
All bars, restaurants and cafés had already been closed on 14 October but the additional measures meant that all museums, cinemas, theatres, libraries, and social places such as the DLC Café had to be closed for two weeks.
Hence the idea of having a radio show during the lockdown came up. A way to reach the members of DLC and spend an hour bonded by our voices and our selection of music.
Over time this evolved into a concept of a real radio station, made by natives & Dutch learners, for natives & Dutch learners!
