We can look forward to classic hits from The Pogues, Wham! and, god forbid, Wizzard, among others.
Speaking to RadioToday, Group Content Director Tony Moorey explained, “Our listeners come to Magic Radio to lighten their mood, and with Christmas music being the number one reason for putting the UK in that festive spirit, we decided to embrace that season and turn the station 100% Christmas all of December.”
Ronan Keating, who fronts Magic Breakfast, added, “We’ve had this under wraps for three months and I am so excited that the news is out there.
“I can’t wait to kick Christmas off this Friday at 9am with our first Christmas song voted for by our listeners at magic.co.uk.”
Keating’s co-presenter Harriet Scott also backed the move.
“No major station has ever done this before,” she said. “What a way to get into the Christmas spirit.”
