Ken Bruce goes live on Greatest Hits Radio for his first show

Ken Bruce has started his first show on Greatest Hits Radio with The Beatles and Come Together.

It follows on from his last song on BBC Radio 2 – The End – from the same album Abbey Road.

The show will follow a similar format to that of old with just a few subtle differences.

He’s now available via – for text it’s keyword Ken to 61054.

There are new jingles, including a new similar sounding theme for his famous quiz. And if you win PopMaster, the prize now includes 12 months subscription to Greatest Hits Radio Premium.

Welcome to commercial radio, Ken!

The former BBC Radio 2 host announced his departure from the BBC ten weeks ago saying it was time for a new challenge.

Bauer has been putting all of its efforts into marketing the arrival of Ken, who will now host 10am till 1pm weekdays across a network of regional and local stations.

Lincs FM, CFM and Radio Borders have all given up their FM frequencies for Greatest Hits Radio today, along with seven heritage Scottish stations in Scotland.

Greatest Hits Radio Wales has also lost its local programmes in favour of the new national schedule.
