Radio Station Playing Pure Christmas Songs Until 25th December Starts Today

Radio Station Playing Pure Christmas Songs Until 25th December Starts Today

It may be August, but the elves at Magic Radio are already looking ahead to Christmas with the launch of a brand-new radio station dedicated entirely to festive tunes.

Bauble earrings and Rudolph antlers at the ready, folks.

Hitting the air waves four months ahead of the big day, Magic 100% Christmas will play non-stop Christmas hits to lift the nation's spirits during difficult times.

Think Wham!, Mariah Carey, The Pogues and Band Aid - all day, every day.

Listeners can tune in from today and sing along to their seasonal favourites for the 120 leading up to Christmas, which stretch over the August Bank Holiday, Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night.

Talking about the launch on Magic Radio Breakfast Show, presenter Ronan Keating said: "2020 has been a hard year for us all - what better way to lift our spirits than bringing Christmas forward a few months?

"One of the most fulfilling parts of working at Magic Radio is to be able to connect with our listeners and bring a smile to their faces, so I can't wait to launch 'Magic 100% Christmas' and turn up the Christmas cheer!"
