Hits Radio asks listeners to pick first song

Bauer’s new national station Hits Radio has created a shortlist of 5 songs for listeners to choose which should be the first track played on 6am next Monday.

Key 103 in Manchester is rebranding, and becoming the first national commercial station to broadcast from outside London.

In an online poll via the Manchester Evening News, listeners can pick from Ed Sheeran & Pharrell’s Sing; You Got The Love by Florence and the Machine; Get The Party Started by Pink, Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop The Feeling; and Greatest Day by Take That.

Voting closes at 10am on Friday, ahead of the station’s launch on Monday 4th June with the new breakfast show of Gemma Atkinson, Gethin Jones and Dave Vitty.
