BFBS: Good Morning Afghanistan

BFBS has launched Radio Afghanistan this morning, broadcasting from Camp Bastion to British Forces across Afghanistan and the Middle East.

The first song played was Wake Up Boo by The Boo Radleys.

The opening is reprised at 9am on DAB Digital Radio in the UK when the BFBS network joins up around the world and, for the first time, connects the UK live with the station in Bastion.

“Being on the ground with our Forces, living cheek by jowl with our audience, is what BFBS Radio is all about,” said Nick Pollard, chief executive of SSVC, the charity behind BFBS Radio. “Today is particularly special as it is the first frontline operational station to open since we launched on DAB in the UK earlier this year – so for the first time in our 65 year history we are connecting the troops in theatre live and direct with their families at home.”
