The program, which is broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 to 12 in Spain, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays in Colombia from 7 to 9 am and on Sundays from 10 to 12 am in Argentina . It corresponds to the format of a magazine or space for varieties and entertainment, in which, through different sections, cultural, social, political and human news, as well as useful information on leisure, are brought closer to the listener. Also included are discussions, interviews and culinary tips, and information on the routes, places to go on a bridge and travel recommendations in Colombia .



The program premiered in Spain on March 12, 1988 with an interview with the then Vice President of the Government Alfonso Guerra . It was directed and presented by the journalist Concha García Campoy from 9 to 12 and had the collaboration of Javier Rioyo , José Luis de Vilallonga , Matías Antolín , Andrés Moya and Macarena Salazar.

During his early years, he obtained interesting sound documents, such as an interview with Rafael Escobedo , a few days before his death, or the message directed by Juan Carlos I in June 1990.

In July 1990, journalist Carmen Juan took over the summer season . [ 1 ]

The program achieved great success among the audience, and according to data from the General Media Study , in January 1990 it was the most listened to program on weekends. By March 1991, it had reached 661,000 listeners. A year later it confirmed its leadership with 1,006,000 listeners on Saturdays and 910,000 on Sundays.


In 1993, after being temporarily replaced by Elena Markínez during her maternity leave, Concha García Campoy definitively left the program when she was signed by Antena 3 Radio . She was replaced until 1995 by María Esperanza Sánchez .


A year later, Marta Robles and Javier Rioyo would be responsible for directing and presenting the program, which kept the same schedule but underwent important changes, from its tuning to the sections. They had as collaborators Eduardo Haro Tecglen , Feliciano Fidalgo, Carlos Boyero, Fernando Rodríguez Lafuente, Isabel Estapé, Charles Powell, Cristina Frazier or Maruja Torres .

With the corresponding summer substitutions ( Cayetana Guillén Cuervo in 1995 and Mari Pau Domínguez in 1996), Marta Robles was in charge of the space until the beginning of the 1996-1997 season, when it was decided to focus on her television career.

It was in this period of time that the program reached the historical radio milestone of passing one million listeners on the weekend.


After the departure of Marta Robles, he assumed the leadership of the Fernando G. Delgado program from Radio Valencia . The magazine kept its schedule from 9 to 12, but it was renewed with the creation of the Diario de un mirón section , a microsection To drink that is two days , with Andreu Buenafuente and El Terrat; and to end the program, a dialogue with Manolito Gafotas, the created character and with the voice of Elvira Lindo .

At that stage the leadership was maintained, counting in April 1997 and according to the EGM, with 1,257,000 listeners on Saturdays and 1,002,000 on Sundays.


At the beginning of the 2005-2006 season Àngels Barceló went on to direct and present the program on Radio Barcelona , reaching its audience record with 1,875,000 listeners on Saturdays and 1,539,000 on Sundays (December 2006).

As a novelty, the program was extended from 8 to 9 to include an informative section (one hour of the previous program Matinal SER was deleted ). At 8 in the morning after a brief informative summary with Àngels Barceló , the then director of Matinal SER Isabel León took over from Radio Madrid until 9.

After the 1st informative hour, the news gathering began, which included Eduardo Sotillos's national press review , and the international press review of Montserrat Domínguez since September 2007. On Saturdays, it continued with the sections on 'Travelers in Transit', ' The Reading Club 'with Manu Berástegui and Òscar López, and, finally, the conversations guided by the chef Sergi Arola . On Sundays the program continued with the interviews of 'Vis a Vis', 'Science for Curious' with the director of the CSIC Carlos Martínez, 'Pasión Catódica' with Ignacio Armada and Isabel Alba, 'El Retrovisor' with John Carlin, Diego Galán , Lola Garrido and Miquel Jurado, and,Josep Maria Pou .

Lourdes Lancho, Julia Otero's previous collaborator on "La Radio de Julia" ( Onda Cero ) and on "La Columna" ( TV3 ), did almost all the vacation substitutions.


As of January 2008, the magazine is presented and directed by Montserrat Domínguez , a collaborator of the program since September 2007, after the departure of Àngels Barceló to " Hora 25 ", the daily nightly news program of Cadena SER .

The new director promised a smooth transition to carry out the program according to her personality, but keeping the spirit and the level of demand that has characterized the radio space since its creation 20 years ago. For this reason it has only carried out a facelift of the format incorporating new collaborators, but, keeping most of the sections of the previous stage: 'Science for the Curious',' Reading Club ',' Travelers in Transit ',' El Plan de Arola 'and' El Telón '.

As a novelty, since the program has been carried out again from Radio Madrid (headquarters of the Informative Services of Cadena SER ), Montserrat Domínguez takes over the reins of the program from the 1st hour, presenting the informative section from 8 to 8:30, but anticipating the start of the news gathering at 8:30.

The editor of the Purification Beltran program was the substitute two days driving during Easter of 2008 , while the writer from the Services News Marta González Novo took over the direction of the summer stage of the program throughout the summer of 2008 .

The weekend's magazine celebrated its 20th anniversary on October 11 , 2008 by interviewing all of the past host-directors.


As of September 2012, the program is directed and presented by journalist Javier del Pino , previously a correspondent for the station in the United States and editor of Hora 25.
