Two new DAB+ services are launching this month in North West, celebrating the 1980s.
Love 80s Manchester and Love 80s Liverpool will also be available online. The stations will operate as seperate services.
Both stations are part of a new brand being officially unveiled by Dee Radio on the 6th August, according to the Prolific North website, which quotes Dee Radio group's chief executive Chris Hurst as saying:
“The two Love 80s stations are completely separate and whilst they share much of the same music both of these Powerhouse Northern cities have their own unique 80s musical heritage and we have reflected their individual characters in their output.”
DAB+ stations are not available on older DAB digital radios. Radio buyers should look for the Digital Radio Tick Mark (shown below) to guarantee DAB+ compatibility. The stations will appear on the Niocast Manchester Trial multiplex and the MuxCo Wrexham, Chester and Liverpool multiplex.
