Bath and West Wiltshire local DAB digital radio services appear

Bath and West Wiltshire's local stations have appeared on Block 12D, ahead of any official announcement by NOWdigital of the multiplex launch. Listeners with a DAB digital radio tuner in the West of England can try a scan for the new multiplex, although the services may disappear until a full announcement is given.

The set of stations on the multiplex serving West Wiltshire and Eastern parts of Bath is comprised of:

DAB digital radio logo
  • GWR FM Bath : contemporary music service (Wiltshire Sound Ltd/GWR West Ltd)

  • Classic Gold Digital : oldies and easy listening (Classic Gold Digital Ltd.)

  • Capital Disney : top 40 pop music for teens (Walt Disney/Capital Radio plc.)

  • The Storm : modern rock and unsigned bands (GWR Group plc.)

  • Passion : Adult contemporary music and environmental & health issues (Passion for the Planet Ltd.)

  • Kiss : current and classic dance music (EG Digital Ltd.)

  • SBN : student radio (Campus Media plc.)

There's no sign of Bath FM, BBC Radio Wiltshire or the planned childrens' station Abracadabra on the multiplex at present.

The news follows an announcement by NOWdigital of a delay in launching the Swindon and West Wiltshire DAB digital radio multiplex.

Thanks to Paul from Upper Weston for the above information.
