Nottingham provides a little excitement for potential DAB switchers

The deadline has been reached, the applications have been counted and NOWdigital has emerged as the only company to provide a local DAB digital radio ensemble for Nottingham.

Notably, four new stations will launch in the city, with five more making the transition from FM and MW to the digital waveband.

Subject to a licence award, April 2004 will see the launch of the multiplex to around 77 percent of the population of Nottingham and surrounding areas. The line-up includes:

  • BBC Radio Nottingham : news, information and music

  • 96 Trent FM : pop and contemporary music

  • Classic Gold GEM : hits of the seventies, eighties and nineties

  • Capital Disney : chart hit music from the last two years

  • 106 Century FM : music and talk

  • Saga Radio : easy listening music and talk for an older audience

  • The Storm : modern rock music and unsigned bands

  • Galaxy : Dance and r&b music

  • A Plus : service for young Asians

With three transmitters located at Mapperley Ridge, Waltham and Mansfield, the above stations hope to launch on DAB digital radio next year.
