CN Group station 96.2 Touch FM in Coventry has flipped to an all Christmas format – for listeners on DAB digital radio. Programmes on FM will remain as normal, and will re-appear on DAB on Boxing Day.
Steve Hyden, programme controller, said: "We’re feeling festive and wanted to share lots of Christmas cheer with our listeners. We’ll be running other special music features on DAB in 2008, so if you don’t yet have a DAB digital radio, perhaps Santa will bring you one".
The Touch DAB signal can be heard across a wide area of the Midlands including Coventry and surrounding areas, and as far away as Stratford upon Avon.
