There is a radio station in Moscow, at 105.2 FM, which broadcasts (mostly, except for ads) in English. Which probably makes it unique in the Moscow FM band.

It used to be called Moscow FM, but then a couple of years ago was renamed to Capital FM.

And only recently I realized that there are other similarly named stations with similar type of content (pop songs) around the globe. For example, Capital FM in London is almost ingistinguishable from Capital FM in Moscow (apart from the accents of the hosts of course).

Now I am wondering whether they are just branches of the same media company.
