Bauer’s Magic Radio has announced plans to relaunch as a station that plays only Christmas songs. From this Friday you will hear nothing but festive music on the station. Although, showing a shocking lack of commitment to their grand idea, the station’s bosses have already said that they will ditch the bold new format come the new year.

Group Content Director Tony Moorey says: “Our listeners come to Magic Radio to lift their mood and with Christmas music being the number one reason for putting the UK in that festive spirit, we decided to embrace the season and turn the station 100% Christmas all of December”.

The switch will be made during Ronan Keating and Harriet Scott’s breakfast show on Friday. Keating, of course, boasts the admirable achievement of having recorded the worst Christmas song ever. Of his station’s new music policy, he says: “We’ve had this under wraps for three months and I am so excited that the news is out there. I can’t wait to kick Christmas off this Friday at 9am”.

The Magic Christmas playlist will feature tracks from the last 50 years, with a particular focus on the 80s and 90s.
