The station plays crooners, swingers and jazz all day and is adding festive music. It broadcasts on DAB+ and launched in June this year.

Duncan Barkes, station creator, said: ‘If you find yourself reaching for the sherry bottle when Slade’s Merry Christmas Everybody comes on the radio for the umpteenth time, then our jazzy and swinging festive offering is a classy alternative.

‘It might be early, but the cards and cakes are in the shops, and we want as many folk as possible to enjoy an Unforgettable Radio Christmas.’
