Absolute Radio extend Frank to network

Frank Skinner’s Saturday morning show on Absolute Radio is to be broadcast on the network’s digital stations Absolute 80s, 90s, 00s and Classic Rock from this weekend.

The comedian’s 8-10am slot on the main station will be timeshifted to run 9-11am on the digital stations with music tailored to fit each of the decade stations’ playlist.

At the moment, the only other Absolute Radio show to be regularly simulcast across all of the network is Christian O’Connell’s breakfast show, which plays a mix of 80s, 90s, 00s and Classic Rock music but airs across all 5 stations.

Absolute Radio’s Head of Presentation Paul Sylvester told RadioToday.co.uk: “As well as being treated to Frank’s unique take on life, listeners will still get to hear the great music which makes each of our decade stations unique. Since his 8-10am show on Absolute Radio started in March 2009, along with the delicious Emily Dean and brilliant Alun Cochrane, Frank’s show is becoming the only way to start the weekend.”

Frank picked up a Sony Gold earlier this year in the Entertainment Programme category and this year so far has received 8 million downloads for his Absolute Radio podcasts, compared with 6m for the whole of last year.

Paul added: “It’s going to be great to have another one of our Faces For Radio broadcasting across the network, joining Christian O’Connell who’s weekday breakfast show is simulcast between 6am-10am. Frank is a unique talent and his audience, podcast downloads and Sony Gold demonstrate his amazing skill and why he’s comedy royalty.”
