Drg prepare to take London by Storm

Modern pop rock music station The Storm will launch alongside an array of new radio stations in England's capital city at the end of January. The third London digital multiplex will begin broadcasting officially on 25th January 2002. Also included is gay music station Purple Radio in its transition from the internet to digital radio. A full line-up of services is given below, and in our London listings.

                              Spectrum International Radio will also launch on digital radio, on the second London multiplex. This follows news of Big London's demise on the digital platform as parent company The Wireless Group slashes costs in order to safeguard the future of its flagship national station, talkSPORT.
