Oldham-based 96.2 The Revolution has been given the all-clear after a recent Content Sampling Report by Ofcom. The station was monitored for three days in June, and is operating within its recently changed Format, the regulator said today.
Ofcom reports that the station’s required 20% speech minimum is achieved through news, traffic and travel updates, weather, what’s on items and the ‘Revolution Notice Board’. Presenters appear eager to talk about the music they play and display enthusiasm and a keen knowledge.
News provision is on the hour with local content at peak times. There are two extended bulletins at lunchtime and drive time. The music mix is distinctive and reflects the genres specified in the Format. A proportion of the daytime playlist is drawn from the fringes of mainstream popular/rock music. Evening specialist shows include music dedicated to adult rock, electro and dance/hip hop.
The station’s Public File is accessible on its website and gives a comprehensive explanation of the station’s obligations.
Other recent Content Sampling Reports have been carried out on 96.3 Rock Radio and Mix 107. Mix was issued with a yellow card after dropping the specialist Asian and Afro-Caribbean music programming required by its Format.
