Introducing Absolute Radio Kevin – Where Debut Songs Matter

Absolute Radio’s latest competition winner gets his own radio station named after himself.

Kevin McIlmurray beat off competition from hundreds of other entries to launch Absolute Radio Kevin.

The idea to play the very best debut singles and songs from debut albums made Kevin first choice.

Explaining what people can expect from his station, Kevin explained, “Anything from Oasis right through to Shaggy and ‘Oh Carolina’. It’s all those debut songs, debut albums, everything. Those memories of songs gone past and the stories behind them.”

Kevin, who usually spends his days working as a Guest Relations Manager at Chessington World of Adventures, will get to become a music producer, presenter and interviewer for the station as it launches from Friday 10th February.

It will be available to all to until Monday 20th February after which it will be available as one of the exclusive Absolute Radio stations available to Premium subscribers.

Last year, Absolute Radio Natalie – where sing-alongs matter – was the first winner of the competition.

The competition was the brainchild of Absolute Radio Breakfast host Dave Berry, who left Kevin speechless when he revealed him as the winner on Friday. Dave said, “To start a new year on my breakfast show exploring the creative genius of our listeners was a joy. The visions they all shared with us for their own radio stations were truly inspired and no more so than Kevin – His idea for Absolute Radio Kevin AKA Absolute Radio Debut is superb! And I cannot wait to give it a listen!”

Absolute Radio Kevin is Where Debut Songs Matter and launches from 8am on Friday 10th February.
