The new digital rock radio service TeamRock will go live next weekend, at two minutes before midnight on Sunday 16 Jun, with the Iron Maiden song ‘Two Minutes To Midnight’, obviously. Which at six minutes long will take the new station into its first day on air.

The launch will coincide with the conclusion of the Download Festival, highlights from which will be aired during the station’s first few days on air. It will also closely follow the arrival of rival station Planet Rock on FM in the West Midlands. As previously reported, that digital rock station is being put on FM by its new owners Bauer Media, using the frequency currently occupied by the Kerrang! radio station.

Commenting on his new station’s impending launch, TeamRock CEO Billy Anderson told reporters: “This is an exciting time for TeamRock Radio. After three long years, seeing our dreams eventually coming together will be very special, and to launch at such a prestigious event as ‘Download’ makes it even more amazing”.
