Guardian Media Group have launched four Smooth Radio stations this morning – all playing A Star is Born by Barbra Streisand as the first song. The song has been used to launch numerous stations run by GMG Radio boss John Myers, including Century Radio and Smooth FM.
Each station, based in Glasgow, East Midlands, West Midlands and London had been running a preview weekend since Friday at 6pm, inviting listeners to tune in for the launch at 6am Monday.
The 5th station in the group, based in the Northwest changed from Smooth FM to Smooth Radio on Friday evening.
