BBC radio Wales taking over R3 relays

Post by Tim Bucknall » 04 Feb 2018 14:31

The next round of coverage building for radio wales FM
Will be at the expense of radio 3
As the station with lowest listener share r3 will be the first to go digital only.

Obviously having radio wales in the 90.2-92.3 range on wales and radio 3 in the same range will make tx identification easier for however long r3 remains on FM in the rest of the UK.

Enjoy late junction, hear & now, night waves, jazz now , world routes, between the ears, the essay (sometimes!)and Geoffrey Smith's jazz on FM while you can!

Nick, someone sent me a free mixing it compilation CD I didn't know existed!
As you'd expect it has jah wobble & holger from can, sun ra, bjork, future sound of London. Aphex twin...

I found it in the 'Ogs Tim: ... se/1021496

Sounds excellent! 'Late Junction' is the closest equivalent now although I very rarely get the chance to listen to it to be honest.

I can't imagine Radio 3 disappearing from FM in England at least for a long time yet.
Good DX.
