Show: Swiss Up!

by Dario Brander
  • Weekdays at 8.40am and repeated weekdays at 6.40am

Taking you beyond cheese and chocolate. 

From the Swiss guards protecting the Pope, nuclear bunkers and secret societies to mythological creatures living in the Alps, Dario takes you on a journey to uncover Switzerland one mystery at a time. 

Tune in to Dario live on the Breakfast Show every weekday morning at 08:40am with Mark Butcher & Katt Cullen as he reveals more Swiss treats for us.
