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.

For insomniacs, taxi drivers and other night workers, there will be programmes hosted by live presenters.

Station manager Andy Green said: “Following five success broadcasts, which generated popular support in the area, the station returns with its Christmas programme schedule which will provide listeners with entertainment, information and hours of fun.”

The station will also be streamlined in real-time on the internet:
