Smile Sussex to make way for Oldies Sussex

The DAB slot currently used by Smile Sussex will be changing under new owners UKRD.

Smile Sussex, which plays ‘Big Band, Pop Standards, Swing Style, Rat Pack attitude and a touch of Jazz’, will be removed from the Sussex mux and replaced by Oldies Sussex which will play oldies music for a 50+ audience.

Smile Sussex will then continue on the local minimux test for Brighton.

The changes come from UKRD, which now owns the majority of Brighton and Hove Radio Ltd, the parent company of Smile Sussex and Juice 107.2.

Test transmissions for Oldies start from 11th January 2016 ahead of full service in February 2016. RadioToday has been in touch with UKRD who will confirm more details of the new station in January.

UKRD also operates Pirate Oldies in Cornwall on DAB.

* Story changed to confirm Smile moving to another multiplex rather than being rebranded.
