London community radio station Resonance FM has started a second service, on DAB in Brighton.
Resonance Extra is on the Brighton and Hove Radio digital multiplex, broadcasting 24 hours a day with a focus on new music, sound art and experimentation.
The station says there will be programmes by The Wire magazine, ‘whose Adventures in Music and Sound is a by word for intelligent eclecticism; MogaDisco, collectors of Africa’s finest recordings; and fine artist Bob and Roberta Smith, whose Make Your Own Damn Music is a haven of ramshackle charm’.
Resonance Extra programmer and University of Sussex graduate Peter Lanceley says: “I am thrilled to get this unique and exciting project off the ground and to bring innovative sounds from around the globe to a city renowned for its new music.”
Brighton and Hove Radio chair Daniel Nathan is equally enthusiastic: “It’s very exciting that the technology we developed and tested here in Brighton is opening up the airwaves to radical innovation and experimentation of the kind we will enjoy from Resonance Extra.”
