Bauer Media has announced details of special live music programming across six of their national radio stations this upcoming Easter Bank holiday.
Absolute Radio, Jazz FM, Kiss, Kerrang! Radio, Scala Radio and Planet Rock will all broadcast content supported by the Audio Content Fund, which made grants available to help support audiences during coronavirus restrictions.
The stations are set to broadcast 52 hours of live music over the weekend, in order to fill the gap left by the cancellation of gigs and festivals around the country. Teaming up with four production companies – TBI Media, Somethin’ Else, Listen, and We Are Grape – Bauer will bring listeners a series of performances from artists and DJs, all recorded in their own homes.
