Metro music BXL

One of the particularities of Brussels is that at all times of the day, there’s music in the metro. But not the same music throughout the day, that would be too easy. I don’t know if there is a logic or deeper thought about what’s played when but I noticed that usually in the evenings between 22h and midnight, it’s classic music – mainly piano. Before, i.e. between 20h and ten, it’s more likely to be marches.

I don’t take the metro very frequently in the morning, so I couldn’t find a pattern yet even though I noticed all kind of different styles: rock, nostalgie, blues, chansons, jazz, pop, French, English and some Flemish, good stuff, awful stuff, etc…..

I couldn’t find anything on the web but I would like to know if there is someone within the Stib who is responsible for the ‘programme’ and if yes, what the quotas and reasons for playing this or that are.

Just curious…

Update 23 October: At between 19:00 and 19:30 – Queen (I want to break free) and Bangles (Walk like an Egyptian). Secret messages are passed on to the people on their way home…
