2 Comments

You may have guessed already, but we LOVE digital radio here at Pure. With so many incredible stations to choose from, we thought we’d give you a run-down of our favourites. From sport, to rock, to jazz, there really is a digital radio station for everyone. 

Enjoy your favourite stations to the fullest with a Pure digital radio. No matter the model, top-of-the-range audio quality and an industry-leading three year warranty is guaranteed as standard. You can even take amazing digital radio on the road with our easy-to-install Highway in-car adapter range! 

Jazz FM

A firm favourite for many jazz lovers, due to its dedication to jazz, blues and soul music. Launched in 2008, Jazz FM has flirted with being a London based station and then national but has now relaunched on the new Sound Digital national DAB multiplex.

Kisstory

Kisstory first began as an hour long programme on sister radio Kiss FM, but due to its popularity expanded to a separate digital radio station. The ultimate throwback station, Kisstory plays “old skool & anthems” and is even easier to listen to now.

BBC Radio 6 Music

A favourite of many, BBC Radio 6 Music generally relies less on chart music than any other mainstream station and tends to have a playlist of more alternative tunes.

Fun Kids

Newly available nationwide on digital radio, the UK’s only children’s station provides a mix of “music, games and silliness” for 6 to 12 year olds. Educational programmes and competitions  gives kids great content and a way to start enjoying digital radio. Fun Kids isn’t just available on your radio, it’s also accessible across the website, podcast and YouTube channel.

BBC Radio 1Xtra

The sister station to BBC Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra was launched in 2002. It specialises in urban music including genres like hip hop, grime, reggae, garage, house and R&B – differing significantly from the more contemporary pop focussed Radio 1.

talkSPORT/talkSPORT 2

If you’re into sport, you might want to check out talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 – the only national stations to broadcast sport radio 24 hours a day.  Its content includes: live coverage of sport, exclusive interviews, transfer rumours, sporting debates, phone-ins and discussion on the nation’s most loved games. It reports on football, rugby, cricket, golf, horse-racing, boxing and other major tournaments – so no matter what your favourite sport is there’s bound to be a programme to suit.

LBC

LBC is one of the most popular talk digital radio stations in the UK with Nick Ferrari’s breakfast show in particular drawing in the listeners. Having started as the UK's first commercial radio station in 1973 as the 'London Broadcasting Company', the station rebranded to ‘Leading Britain’s Conversation' in 2014. LBC’s great to tune into when you’re not in the mood for music.
