Monday, 1st June 2009
Let's have some Fun on DAB

A DAB digital radio station aimed at children, their carers and parents, Fun Kids has been pencilled in for a 27th June launch on the national digital radio multiplex.

The station, which previously could be heard on a small number of local DAB digital radio multiplexes, but presently broadcasts solely to London on the capital's third digital radio multiplex, will prove a boost to parents this summer.

Gregory Watson, MD of Fun Kids said: "Over the summer months, Fun Kids will be able to entertain families across the country - telling them about great places to visit, wherever they are, events to attend and activities to take part in."

Fun Kids features characters such as Thomas and Friends, Angelina Ballerina, Barney and plays music from films and shows, nursery rhymes and tunes for kids.

The station will broadcast 24 hours a day, prividing unwinding and soothing music for parents after 9pm every evening. It will be available from 27th June until 3rd October 2009 on the national DAB radio multiplex.

News of the station's launch on national DAB follows the closure of the Birdsong Channel, launch of new music station Amazing Radio and the relaunch of BFBS radio on the national multiplex.
