Presenter-driven alternative music station NME Radio has launched the first of several temporary FM broadcasts around the UK, starting off in London until November 2nd on 87.7FM.
NME Radio is available digitally on Sky 0184, Virgin Media 975, Freesat 727 and online. The station wants to further increasing the number of opportunities for music fans in the UK by offering them a taste of what is normally available.
An RSL (Restricted Service License) will also be on air in Manchester from November 10 until December 7 on the same frequency.
NME Radio managing director Sammy Jacob says: “We’re committed to making the station available on as many platforms as possible and over the next few months we’ll be rolling out NME Radio on further platforms.”
Highlights of the month-long London RSL include a special Kaiser Chiefs day on October 21 where the band will be Live In Session and chatting about their new album “Yours Truly, Angry Mob” and an acoustic set from Babyshambles drummer Adam Ficek on October 10, during which he will perform two tracks from his recently released solo album.
NME Radio launched on June 24 with a line up of key presenters including Claire Sturgess, Neil Cole, Iain Baker and Chris Martin. The station features live sessions, music news, interviews, gig and festival guides along with the best indie alternative music. NME Radio is an essential listen for any fan of cutting-edge music.
