Time zones give us all a collective nosebleed, so we decided to make up a time zone just for SLAY Radio: USRT, or Universal SLAY Radio Time.
There’s no way to compact the meaning, so we will give you two paragraphs:
In the winter months, USRT is the same as CET (Central European Time), which is GMT+1 / UTC+1 / Zulu+1. It means the usual start time of 20:00 USRT is equivalent to 19:00 GMT, 14:00 EST and 11:00 PST. In “The East”, the show is the next day at 06:00 AEDT and 03:00 HKT.
In Daylight Savings – which is an added complication – USRT is the same as CEST (Central European Summer Time), which is BST+1 / UTC+2 / Zulu+2. It means the usual start time of 20:00 USRT is equivalent to 14:00 EDT and 11:00 EDT. In “The East” the show is the next day at 04:00 AEDT and 02:00 HKT.
There’s an added complication in that Europe and the Americas don’t “spring forward” and “fall back” at the same time. ARGH!
The best thing to do is is go to the Time and Date website and use their excellent website to work out when the show starts in your neck of the woods. UGH!
