GMG Radio trialling new all-70s station

RadioToday.co.uk can exclusively reveal that GMG Radio will introduce a new national 70s station on Digital One.

The new service, to be called Smooth 70s, will start on December 27th on the channel currently used by Smooth Xmas.

The station will begin life as a non-stop music service without adverts, features or programmes. Just station imaging will identify the station between songs.

The move follows Absolute Radio’s recent launch of Absolute 70s on November 29th, which currently brands itself as “The UK’s Only 70s Radio Station”, although only available on DAB in London.

Smooth 70s first started life in the summer as a steam on we7.com, along with Smooth 60s and Smooth Soul.
