There’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit then listening to Christmas songs all day and with digital radio it couldn’t be easier with a host of festive stations to choose from.
Since 3 November, Heart extra has been turning up the festive feel good by transforming into Heart extra Xmas, with a playlist devoted entirely to playing the best festive hits all the way through until midnight on Boxing Day.
From Friday 30 November, Magic Radio will embrace the season and turn the station 100% Christmas playing all Christmas music with a selection of much-loved Christmas pop hits from the last fifty years’ – including 80s and 90s classics from WHAM!, The Pogues, Mariah Carey, Elton John and Paul McCartney.
Magic Breakfast’s Ronan Keating, said: “We’ve had this under wraps for three months and I am so excited that the news is out there. I can’t wait to kick Christmas off with our first Christmas song voted for by our listeners.”
Harriet Scott, added, “No major station has ever done this before, what a way to get into the festive spirit!”
