This station began broadcasting in 1967 and has had 24-hour transmissions since May 1991. It was launched to attract audiences from the pirate radio stations of the day and has always claimed its target listeners are aged 15-29, although the actual average age of the almost 10 million audience is 30.
To attract a younger age group, the station plays mainly current music through the day and more specialised new music at night. As a public service broadcaster, it is also required to provide news and offers hourly short bulletins and two 15-minute bulletins each day. It now broadcasts on FM and DAB frequencies as well as via TV providers and online.
