    It’s now the 12th of November and Radio Wirral still isn’t in DAB yet having scheduled to be launched on 1st November.
    They said there were technical issues but I imagine they’re probably more likely to be money issues. They’ve probably checked their sums again on how much DAB carriage costs will be and they’ve realized that broadcasting on DAB will be too expensive so they’ve decided against it. Probably the reasons why Wirral Radio (not to be confused with Radio Wirral) closed.
