Video: First Christmas broadcast from Exmouth’s Bay FM
Exmouth radio to run 24-hour-a-day programmes for week up to Christmas
EXMOUTH’S community radio station Bay FM will return to the airways for its first Christmas broadcast.
Operating from its new premises donated by Buildbase, on frequency 107.9FM, the station will open for 24 hours a day from Saturday, December 18, until Christmas Eve.
It will mean a week of early wake-up calls for wacky Bay FM DJ Stuart ‘Huggy’ Hughes, who will host the new 6am maverick breakfast show.
From 6pm each night, there will be specialist music programmes, one including interviews with key figures and performers on the Wednesday evening gig guide show.
