Sandgrounder Radio, which is a local independent, commercial radio station for the North West Coast of England, recently gained approval from regulator Ofcom to include the Fylde Coast as part of it’s editorial and broadcast coverage area on DAB Digital Radio.
Content and Commercial Director Andy Hilbert said “The Blackpool Illuminations are one of if not THE biggest attractions in the UK. Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus pandemic the usual switch on show at the Headland couldn’t go ahead so Visit Blackpool have arranged what is to be an amazing virtual switch on that you can watch in the comfort of your own home. Here at Sandgrounder Radio we’ll be broadcasting from various points along the promenade, setting the scene as the lights come on and looking more into this amazing attraction and why people travel from all over the UK to admire the lights”.
Andy added “We have lots of information to share with our listeners with regards to the virtual switch on event and the illuminations in general, thanks to our friends at Visit Blackpool”.
You can listen to Sandgrounder Radio’s special programme to celebrate the switching on of the 2020 Blackpool Illuminations, from Blackpool, tomorrow evening between 6 and 10pm on DAB Digital Radio (channel 10D). You can also download the ‘Sandgrounder Radio’ app for free from the app store or google play. Ask your smart speaker to “play Sandgrounder Radio on Tune IN” and of course you can listen online via the website www.sandgrounderradio.co.uk
