New Yorks – UK finalists

Almost 30 radio stations and production houses across the UK have reached the final stages of the New York Festivals Radio Broadcasting Awards for 2007. They include Heart 106.2 and Radio City who are up for four awards, whilst Virgin Radio and Kerrang 105.2 receive three nominations each.

Syndicated Blue Revolution show Totally 80s with Gary King is nominated for Best Oldies Show, whilst Bob Strong from Town 102 and Mike Toolan from Key 103 are both nominated for Best Personality in a local market.

Blue Revolution's MD Paul Hollins is over the moon: "These awards truly are the Oscars of the radio industry and it's a great honour to be recognised on a global scale."

It's a battle of Hearts as Ed James from 100.7 Heart FM is up against Jamie Theakston and Harriet Scott from Heart 106.2 are nominated for Best Music/Personality Show.

Other stations up for awards include BBC Radio Berkshire, Capital 95.8, Classic FM, Metro Radio, Oxford's FM107.9 and online station KUBE.

GCap Media's Planet Rock has been nominated in the Best Music Special category for the 'Under the Influence with Ian Anderson' show. Trevor White, Planet Rock's programme director told

"I'd wanted Ian to do a show for Planet Rock ever since I'd started programming the station, but I didn't want him just to be a DJ. 'Under The Influence ' gave us the vehicle we needed to get the very best from Ian, allowing him to pay homage to the musicians that had crossed his path over the years and the music that had directly or indirectly influenced him and his band, from Folk to Blues and onto Prog Rock. The six parts give a rare insight into one of rock's great characters and is a show we are very proud of."
