Brazil’s number one EDM radio network Dance Paradise FM is adding Germany Calling to their schedule and will be broadcasting the Berlin produced show every Thursday afternoon from June 7 (17.00 local time, 22.00 Berlin time).
The Curitiba based station reaches millions of listeners via a network of 55 terrestrial FM radio stations.
Sérgio Maslowsky from Dance Paradise FM chatted to Skrufff this week about the story behind the fast growing Brazilian radio network and recalled how they started 8 years ago ‘just as a web radio station broadcast from a small room here in Curitiba.’
“Initially we began broadcasting a few trance and house radio shows from some international artists and during that period times were really hard but after a few months we got in touch with some huge artists who supported and believed in the idea and the concept of the radio station- people like Markus Schulz, Matt Darey and Menno de Jong,” he recalled.
International party girl Paris Hilton talked up her superstar DJ ambitions this week, telling FHM magazine she’ll be devoting her full attention to promoting her soon to be released second album.

A Polish man who broke into Madonna’s homes twice after claiming she sent him subliminal messages was this week jailed indefinitely after a judge ruled he posed an ongoing and ‘serious risk’ to the iconic pop star.
Grezgorz Matlok, 30, was arrested after using a rope to climb into her London townhouse a year after he’d been caught breaking into Madonna’s ex husband Guy Ritchie’s mansion in Wiltshire.
"It is extremely unsettling to know that, despite the extensive security I have, he has been able to break into two of my residential properties,” Madonna said in a statement about her latest stalker.
