UK’s Cap­i­tal Ra­dio launches in UAE

Campaign Middle East - - CONTENTS -

UK ra­dio brand Cap­i­tal Ra­dio has re­launched in the UAE, play­ing hits from the 1960s to 1980s, plus a se­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary easily lis­ten­ing.

Roger Paine, a for­mer sta­tion man­ager and break­fast show pre­sen­ter of the orig­i­nal Cap­i­tal Ra­dio UAE, is be­hind the re­launch. He said: “Cap­i­tal Ra­dio has a strong rep­u­ta­tion for pro­duc­ing qual­ity pro­grammes along with an en­ter­tain­ing blend of great DJs and fan­tas­tic mu­sic, both tai­lored specif­i­cally for the UAE pro­fes­sion­als aged over 35. We all en­joy a bit of nos­tal­gia but cur­rently none of the other 11 English ra­dio sta­tions based in the UAE plays any of the mu­sic from The Bea­tles, Elvis Pres­ley, The Hol­lies, Si­mon & Gar­funkel, Abba etc.”

The sta­tion will ini­tially only be avail­able online and through apps, but Paine says it will be the first UAE sta­tion to broad­cast on DAB by late Novem­ber, and on two FM fre­quen­cies later in the year.
