About our services

We propose to broadcast six DAB digital radio services to the Portsmouth area, if we are successful in our application to Ofcom. This page explains a little bit more about our proposed services.

Angel XtraA new spin off service from Angel Radio, ANGELxtra will broadcast dance band music from the 1920s to 1950s by day and easy listening music from the 1940s to 1950s by night. Angel Radio has been broadcasting to Havant since 2002 on 101.1FM and on DAB Digital Radio to South Hampshire since 2010. Angel Xtra allows Angel Radio to offer even more programming from bygone times.

Express FMBroadcasting useful information, supporting local music and sounding different to other services, Express FM is a popular local community radio service for Portsmouth. Featuring music, talk and live Portsmouth FC commentary, Express FM has been broadcasting to Portsmouth, from Portsmouth, on 93.7FM since 2006. 

JAMM RadioAn exciting service from Highbury college playing chart hits of the moment, and guilty pleasures of the past. JAMM Radio is the only local service with programmes made by students for students. Currently an internet broadcaster, being on DAB digital radio will allow the service to be heard on terrestrial radio for the first time.

The FlashThe Flash is an alternative to pop music services with a diet of classic rock singles and albums from 1960 to 1990, featuring blues and music from local bands. Based in Havant and broadcasting on the internet, The Flash has also had occasional licensed temporary FM transmissions to the Havant area.

Triple HitsA service aimed at 20 to 44 year olds playing current and classic hits. Triple Hits currently broadcasts on DAB digital radio in Somerset and Bristol. The service aims to cater for the generation that are too old for Radio 1, but too young for Radio 2 playing a mixture of familiar current and classic hits.

Dance ServiceUnfortunately we can’t reveal the provider of our dance music service right now. However, what we can say is that our dance music service will play upfront dance music, and specialist dance music, aimed at 15-30 year olds.

  1. Great to see a lot more content for us on dab. To my total sadness though, there are no stations for the many of us who would like to listen to classic oldies from the 60’s and 70’s. Since the removal locally of the Gold radio service, we have been seemingly cast aside in Portsmouth. So why can’t we have a station on this service?

  2. Thanks for the message Keith.

    It may be worth approaching services or radio groups that provide stations specialising in music from the 60s and 70s to ask them why they aren’t interested in broadcasting to Portsmouth or the wider Solent area. It may be that if there is enough demand they might reconsider their position.
