Heart Xmas is back on DAB digital radio across the UK three months before Christmas

Heart’s festive radio station, Heart Xmas, has launched earlier than ever before across the UK today.

The spin-off, which has been available all year on Global Player, is now playing everything festive from Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’, Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’, Michael Bublé’s ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ and Andy Williams’ ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’.

Richard Steel, Managing Editor of Heart, said: “Heart Xmas is back! The countdown to Christmas has officially started and we’re excited to be launching Heart Xmas earlier than ever before.

“We know how much our listeners love to start the festive season early, so we wanted to bring the Christmas spirit straight from the Heart studios to your speakers by playing festive feel good tune every single day.”

Heart Xmas is available across the UK on DAB digital radio, and on Global Player on your smart speaker (“play Heart Christmas”), iOS or Android device and heart.co.uk/xmas.

Last month, Devon-based Radio Exe launched a 24/7 Christmas service four months before the big day – as Radio Exemas appeared on a small-scale DAB multiplex.
