Radio activity in Monaco is no longer merely about promoting Monaco’s festivities as initially envisaged by the Société des Bains de Mer in 1923. More recently, it has become a fully-fledged industry, with RMC Italy broadcasting from Monaco to the whole of Italy, and RMC Middle East relaying its Arabic-language programmes developed in Monaco to the entire Middle East from a powerful transmitter based in Cyprus.
But who remembers today that RMC’s adventure began in Monaco? Well, morning listeners, perhaps, as every day at 5am, the broadcaster still begin its long-wave transmission with… the Monaco National Anthem!
