    A Word for Broadcast

    Dear Teacher,

    I am looking for a word / an expression. It is a fixed prelude or an elementary introduction for a radio programme.

    For example, Beep, beep...( Music) This is BBC Worldwide Service.


    What do you call "prelude" in English? Thank you!

    Anglika, thanks for your reply.

    "Announcement" seems too formal.

    Maybe I didn't make my question clear enough.

    For instance ".....(fixed music for a few seconds)... Welcome to Faith Radio Online-Simply to Relax, Im Faith....

    What do you call the " fixed music" slot in English for a radio programme? If you have any idea, let me know. Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply. But " the theme music" might be in the middle of a programme, isn't it? I referred to the elementary introduction only.

    True - but you can have introductory theme music too. Or the opening theme.
