Yesterday, Classic FM presenters Myleene Klass andAled Jones hosted the Regent Street Christmas Lights switch on. Darcey Bussell, the Strictly Come Dancing judge and former prima ballerina, pressed the switch to launch Christmas across the capital, but it didn’t stop there for the UK radio scene:

  • The weekend also saw the return of Smooth Christmas on national DAB digital radioand on Radioplayer. Smooth Christmas will run until Boxing Day when it will return to Smooth Extra. The station will be the only all Christmas station broadcasting nationally on DAB.
  • Free Radio has joined forces with a Coventry based charity to Give a Kid a Christmasthis year. The promotion launched today with JD and Roisin on breakfast and the ‘winner’ will give a child and their family, the chance to visit Lapland and meet Santa.
  • As part of Blue Revolution’s festive season, Steps singer Faye Tozer is making her network radio debut, presenting a three-hour show ‘Faye Tozer – Steps into Christmas’, to celebrate the biggest festive hits of all-time, which is available for syndication.

The programme line-up also includes ‘Christmas Day with Santa’, which continues to raise money for the Make-A-Wish charity and ‘The New Year’s Vibe’, an eight-hour feel-good show presented by Pat Sharp. Other shows include the eight-hour special, ‘The All Time 100 Million Sellers’ with Claire Sturgess, ‘Totally ‘80s Christmas’ with Gary King and ‘The Stars of 2015’, presented by Paul Hayes.

Ivan Laskov, Blue Revolution’s Head of Content said: “Once again, Blue Revolution offers stations a world-class line-up of festive shows. The shows will also allow sales teams to generate additional revenue across the busy festive period, so it’s a win-win.”

It’s definitely beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
