Radio Essentials launches on Sheffield DAB multiplex

Radio Essentials has started broadcasting in Sheffield offering local residents another choice of music radio stations.

Essentials has been streaming online since October 2022 but has now made the move to DAB.

The station’s programme director Lee Glasby commented: “We’re so excited to be bringing the station to the people of Rotherham and Sheffield.

“Our journey up to now has been amazing from setting up the station a year ago with business partner Stephen to now, broadcasting on DAB.

“The station plays a mix of the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and selected hits from today along with specialist music shows at the weekend including Essential, Rock, Cheese, Synthwave, Dreamscapes, Soul and dance classics.”
