Jazz FM is back as a full-time radio station, now broadcasting via DAB digital radio in London, the North West, the West Midlands, Glasgow, parts of the west coast of Scotland and South Wales, Sky Digital 0202, Freesat and online at

Richard Wheatly, founder of TLRC and executive chairman of Jazz FM opened the station at 7pm, saying he was delighted to bring back the station to an expectant audience in the UK and around the world.

Back in play is the Listen in Colour idents and straplines along with the once famous Jazz FM chameleon – many of the presenters are those who were part of the line-up before GMG bought the London and Manchester-based Jazz FM's in 2002.

Wheatly went on to say: "We'll be making much of our music available to our listeners on CD’s and downloads and our first album 'The Sound of Jazz FM 2008' will be available in major record shops and online from October 20th."

The 2008 Jazz FM schedule includes Peter Young, Mike Chadwick, Sarah Ward and Steve Quirk.
