The Absolute Radio Breakfast show launches ‘Absolute Radio You’

Ever fancied having your own radio station where it is all about you? This January Absolute Radio is giving one lucky person just that.

On 4th January the Absolute Radio Breakfast show will launch ‘Absolute Radio You’, a competition, which gives listeners the chance to win a money can’t buy prize - their very own station. The station itself will be named after our winner and will feature a series of bespoke programmes and playlists based around all their favourite music and bands. Alongside this the winner will also get to present on the station and potentially interview a famous face or two.

Absolute Radio Breakfast presenter Dave Berry said “I am really looking forward to sharing this unique competition with our listeners in January, it’s going to be loads of fun! Absolute Radio has a station for each musical decade, as well as Classic Rock and Country music, so we thought it was about time that one lucky listener had their own station – Absolute Radio You. What an amazing opportunity for someone to create their very own Radio station and be able to share it with people around the UK.”

To enter the competition listeners can head to the Absolute Radio website where they will be asked to answer a selection of questions about themselves and the station. Shortlisted entries will then be invited to come on air and pitch their station to the Dave Berry Breakfast Show in a bid to win.

The competition launches on 4th January and closes on 21st January with the winner being announced on 28th January. The pop-up station will go live in February in the Absolute Radio app, online at absoluteradio.co.uk and via smart-speaker.

You can listen to the Dave Berry Breakfast Show in the Absolute Radio app and on absoluteradio.co.uk Monday to Friday from 6am.
