Sorry to all those film buffs who thought I might do a review of the excellent 1976 film. However, I really wanted to talk about the 96.4 variety and landed a slot on local DAB. Today MuxCo, working with UKRD Group, has submitted an application for the Surrey & North Sussex multiplex. Whilst we won’t be featuring Michael Caine, Donald Sutherland or Donald Pleasence, the multiplex will feature the heritage stations of County Sound, Mercury FM and BBC Southern Counties Radio, as well as 96.4 Eagle Radio.
This is MuxCo’s tenth application – and what a busy year it has been. However, we remain true to our beliefs of enabling DAB expansion in an efficient and viable manner. We continue to ensure a wide variety of new choice is carried. NME Radio will provide a new perspective on the rock scene, whilst Easy Radio’s easy listening mix will now be available to a significantly larger audience across the Home Counties. Shuffle is a new service for the area comprising music and listener-generated content for teenagers and young adults, whilst Traffic Radio will provide an up to date traffic and travel service. If successful with our bid, we would hope to make some further announcements of additional services before our proposed launch.
Onwards and upwards, and now down the M4 and M5 to Somerset.
