Manchester’s Gaydio has become the first community radio station to launch on Radioplayer.
The station has joined with support from G Media, and now mixes with hundreds of commercial and BBC radio stations around the country who use the newly launched console.
Any Ofcom licenced radio station is welcome to join the service, subject to the relevant fees being paid and “back end” data being provided.
Gaydio Station Director, Toby Whitehouse told RadioToday.co.uk: “Weʼre really excited to be making another UK radio first by joining Radioplayer, which has become the standard method for listening to UK radio online.”
Michael Hill from Radioplayer added: “One of the key principles behind Radioplayer is that it should benefit the entire industry. Iʼm very proud that weʼre beginning to see greatlooking Radioplayers for student and community stations, which are now one click away from Heart, Smooth, Absolute, and Radio 2.”
Radioplayer announced this week that 5.7 million unique users have used the service in the last month.
