Tony Prince joins Olympics DAB station

Former pirate radio DJ Tony Prince will be part of the schedule when International Radio Festival launches this summer.

The temporary station will broadcast on DAB in London from July 20th to August 12th, via the Switchdigital multiplex.

The station will broadcast from a bus and include guest appearances from Tony Blackburn, Ed ‘Stewpot’ Stewart and Emperor Rosko.

Its base will be the House of Switzerland, the official Swiss hospitality centre at the Olympic Games, and feature programming from radio legend Tony Prince, Kerrang! and Q Radio’s Danielle Perry and Karen P, founder of Folded Wing who produce radio content for stations as varied as Radio 1, NME Radio and Roundhouse Radio.

There will be shows from Ministry of Sound Radio, Hoxton FM, Camp Bestival and Montreux Jazz Festival plus reports on events at the House of Switzerland, live music sessions and a wealth of interviews with athletes, celebrities and authorities from the worlds of music and fashion, offering an insight into their musical tastes, their opinions about the Games and its host city, London.

The converted bus/studio will also be open to the public. Founders of the IRF, Miguel Alvarez & Darryl von Däniken, said: “We are really excited to be bringing Londoners a taste of Switzerland with special showcases of both Swiss and British music radio shows, festivals, bands, personalities, athletes and celebrities. We welcome the opportunity of being able to broadcast across the Olympic city of London.”
