Delux Radio - Delux Radio Station begin broadcasting live on air on Saturday 24 February 2018, boasting established names in Radio alongside some fresh new talented DJs covering many styles of music and genres; some ground breaking for a mainstream station.
The internet station has been running streams online through its interactive website for over two years and featuring on many different digital apps across the globe and has already attracted lots of media attention from the radio industry while gaining hundreds of thousands of listeners along the way; keeping them informed on all the latest developments through its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
Delux Radio station director David Wimble explains the origins behind what inspired him to create the new station: “ 1967 marked the 50th anniversary of both the introduction of the ‘Marine Offences Broadcasting Act’ and the launch of the BBC’s National Radio’s 1 & 2 stations. Listening to those stations along with Capital Radio, and to some extent, Radio Luxembourg through the golden years of the 70’s and 80’s I loved how the DJ’s were given the freedom to express their own unique personalities and to play a vast variety of music. Jump forward to the present day and radio stations have changed beyond recognition and the personality DJ has all but gone with it. So as I collated music for my 50th Birthday party, I realised the wealth of fantastic tracks that I loved but would never hear on the radio. So when I started thinking about the format of the station I knew I wanted an open music policy, to hear an array of great music genres played by knowledgeable, entertaining DJs but bringing it bang up to date with interactive features and listener inclusion.”
