Popular Local DAB Station ‘Sandgrounder’ Re-Tunes As ‘Dune Radio’

Seven years after launching as a local, commercial radio station on DAB, Sandgrounder Radio is evolving. From Monday 3rd July, Sandgrounder will become the brand new ‘Dune Radio’.

Broadcasting across the North West Coast area, Dune Radio will cover the likes of Southport and Lytham St Anne’s on DAB+ Digital Radio from the top of Blackpool Tower, as well as broadcasting Online (apps, website) as well as Smart Speakers and Freeview channel 277.

The New ‘Dune Radio’ will pick up from where Sandgrounder Radio leaves off with the same great line up of local, radio professionals, local news & information, plus ‘Better Music and More Of It’.

Content Director, Andy Hilbert (pictured below) said: ‘After seven years of hard work, we now turn a new chapter and evolve the radio station with a new and familiar name, locally.

Andy added: ‘Dune Radio will be like a stick of Blackpool Rock, cut it half and it will have the word ‘local’ running right through the middle of it.

“We would like to thank everyone who has supported the ‘Sandgrounder Radio’ brand for the last seven years from advertisers to the many people who have listened, as well as everyone that has ever been part of ‘Team Sandgrounder’, including all family members and friends of those involved”.

We’re looking forward to a brand new chapter, continuing to make great local radio for the area in the form of the new ‘Dune Radio’”.

Over the next few weeks, Sandgrounder Radio will begin its transition to the new brand and will officially become ‘Dune Radio’ from Monday 3rd July

Andy concludes by saying ‘Keep listening and watching as we evolve into ‘The New Dune Radio’.
