Radio Work

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.
