Classic FM live from Liverpool

Classic FM is helping to celebrate Liverpool's Capital of Culture year in 2008 by broadcasting live from the city. The station is an official partner of the Liverpool Philharmonic, and will showcase the orchestra and the city for a full 24 hours on January 3rd.

It’s the first time in Classic FM’s 15-year history that the station has broadcast an entire day’s output from somewhere other than its London studios.

Classic FM’s broadcast from Liverpool gets underway with Lisa Duncombe (midnight-2.00am) followed by Mark Griffiths (2.00-6.00am), Jane Jones (6.00-8.00am), Simon Bates (8.00am-12 noon), Jamie Crick with the Classic FM Most Wanted (noon-1.00pm) and Classic FM Requests (1.00pm-4.00pm), Drivetime with Mark Forrest (4.00pm-6.30pm), Classic Newsnight with John Brunning (6.30-7.00pm), Smooth Classics at Seven with John Brunning (7.00-9.00pm) and The Evening Concert with Nick Bailey (9.00pm-midnight).

Speaking about the project, Classic FM Managing Director Darren Henley said: “Liverpool has a very special place in the hearts of everyone here at Classic FM. The Liverpool Phil has been our orchestra in the North West since 2001 and was the first orchestral partnership that we undertook. We’re delighted to be working with the Phil in 2008 to showcase the work of the orchestra and the city of Liverpool to our six million listeners around the UK.”
