Insel radio is Radio Island. Such a name that the station receives from the seafront at Palma de Mallorca broadcasts 24 hours in German.

The Germanisation of Majorca has its emblems. One of them is this station, one of the bulwarks media of the German colony near publications "Magazin Mallorca and Mallorca Zeitung", in this order of appearance on the market.
Several thousand Germans living in a stable in the so-called Trauminsel, dreamy island. Of course there is a demand in German that these media are trying to cover.

Feeling German full Mediterranean is almost mystical experience. As a German would say: "Klasse!".
