UTV Radio launches festive DAB pop-ups

UTV Radio is to launch new pop-up radio services for DAB listeners in Stoke on Trent, Swansea, Bradford and Huddersfield.

From the 17th November through to the 28th December (inclusive), listeners will be able to tune into Pulse Xmas in Bradford and Huddersfield, Signal Xmas in Stoke and Wave Xmas in Swansea - festive offshoots of their local UTV commercial radio station.

The Ofcom approval for the services, published late on Friday, indicates that the temporary stations will operate 24 hours a day from 17th Nov, "playing a broad selection of seasonal songs." The stations will broadcast in stereo.
