Smooth Radio 70s to close after 21 months

Smooth Radio’s younger sibling Smooth 70s will close this weekend less than a week after being under the new control of Global Radio.

Smooth 70s launched in December 2011 as a replacement to Smooth Christmas, but went on to attract an audience of 749,000 within a year by broadcasting on the national DAB platform.

The station was run by a small team based at Smooth Radio based in Manchester, headed by Group Deputy Programme Director Chris Stevens.

The Digital One space will be filled by Global Radio’s latest brand extension, Capital XTRA.
