In 1985 Paul Rans started broadcasting music programmes for the English branch of the Flemish
World Service, Radio Vlaanderen Internationaal.
He worked free-lance for BRTN’s Radio 1 and
Radio 3, and since 1993 as a producer and presenter
of world music programmes for VRT Radio 3, now called Klara.
This also resulted in his production of an award
winning series of 8 CDs with Traditional Music from
Flanders, besides numerous flamenco, Indian classical, African
and fusion CDs (See also Discography - Productions)
In February 2009 Paul Rans retired from his radio work and his world music programme Hemel & Aarde (Heaven & Earth) in order to concentrate once again on his own music and on lute making.
