Rockabye Radio, created by music specialists Mike and Karen Eaves, broadcasts nursery rhymes during activity times and lullabies at nap time.

The daily broadcasts begin with ‘Up and About’ at 7am followed by ‘Daytime Disco’ at 2.30pm and there are lullabies from 7pm until 6am the following morning.

Karen set up the British Academy of New Music as well as training music teachers, while her husband Mike is a renowned composer and guitarist.

Karen said: “We wanted to combine our expertise to deliver a radio station designed especially for young families.
