According to announcements, Voice of Korea has changed its European
frequencies to the Winter schedule from October 3 (i.e. about a month
earlier than usual). The schedule is the same as for B21:

English at 13:00, 15:00. 18:00, 21:00 on 12015 and 7570 (replacing 15245 and
German at 16:00, 18:00, 19:00 on 9425 and 6170 (replacing 12015).

Actually today there is confusion at Kujang, as I observed English only on
9425 and German on 12015.
7570 and 6170 were not on the air. No doubt this will be rectified in the
coming days.

I often enjoy listening to their music selections, which follow the news.
Mostly popular melodies but also some classical pieces.
On Saturdays, at around 40 minutes into the broadcast, they often air a
"Mailbag" segment.
