Glee FM becomes Glide FM

Glee FM, the new name for FM107.9 Oxford, has disappeared after 56 hours to make way for another new station – Glide FM.

The non-stop Glee format turned out to be another stunt performed by Passion Radio Oxford, but made headlines around the world.

According to the Glee FM website, the station has ceased for legal reasons as of 5pm.

Glide’s Programme Director Sue Carter explains: “Glee is simply the biggest show around – it’s more than a TV programme, it has inspired a whole generation – yet not one UK radio station is playing the songs. The Glee catalogue forms an important part of Glide FM’s playlist so we thought we’d make a splash by going all-out on Glee for the first two days. The publicity it has generated around the world has completely amazed us, so we thought we’d better come clean before we get in any trouble”.

Glide is targeting 20-something Oxford professionals, with a clear female skew. It will broadcast music, news and the latest travel live from its Summertown studios 24 hours a day, seven days a week making it the leading local station for the county’s young population.

Glide FM’s Station Manager Ian Walker says: “Simply put: people who like Glee will love Glide. We are confident that Glide’s launch will make as big a splash as Jack’s did, both in Oxfordshire and in the radio market internationally.”
