Heart Radio launches new station for club classics

By | Published on Tuesday 18 June 2019


If you’re a fan of Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim and Armand Van Helden then, well done, you’re now officially part of the Heart FM demographic. Grab yourself a wireless, Grandma. Let’s get down and boogie to the some top club classics.

Global Radio has announced a new spin off from its Heart brand that will launch online and across the UK on the DAB network on Friday. Heart Dance will, and I quote, offer “an incredible blend of the best feel good dance and club classics tunes anywhere on the dial”.

That Toby Anstis will front the new station’s breakfast show, while Lucy Horobin will be in charge during drive time. There’ll also be a ‘Heart’s Club Classics’ show that goes out on the main Heart network as well as the new channel on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Says Heart’s Managing Editor James Rea: “Heart Dance will be a brilliant addition to the Heart brand – just in time for the summer! Listeners will be able to re-live the greatest times of their life with the biggest club classic dance tunes of all time”.

Meanwhile Anstis chips in: “To present the breakfast show on a brand new national radio station, playing the music I have always loved with a passion, is a dream! To top it off, we also have my good mate Lucy Horobin getting listeners home at drive time. Heart is my natural home and a place I love. I can’t wait to get started, waking up the UK with some bangers from 7am on Friday live on Heart Dance!”

Just to be clear, Toby is not offering to cook you sausages for breakfast.
