Exeter radio station launches Christmas songs service – yes, in August

Happy Christmas everybody! Given you’re all busy getting back into the festive mood once again – you’re all doing that, right? – Exeter-based radio station Radio Exe has launched a new service on the city’s DAB digital radio network playing back-to-back Christmas songs. From now until January.

Yeah, it’s August and I just tuned in to hear Shakin Stevens sing ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’. And if that wasn’t bad enough, they’ve called this new service Radio ExeMas.

Commenting, Radio Exe presenter Matt Rogers told RadioToday: “Whilst I’d simply love to play non-stop Christmas songs on Radio Exe, Mr Scrooge who runs the station has kiboshed that. Radio ExeMas is the solution though, so whenever you fancy a festive fix, select it on your digital radio”.

However, don’t be thinking Radio ExeMas is the only back-to-back Christmas songs radio station on offer right now. Global’s Heart Xmas never turned off its online feed from last December.
