Absolute 90s going national on DAB

Absolute 90s will appear on the national Digital One multiplex on Monday 29th January 2018, filling a 80kbps mono slot that has been vacant since Magic’s Christmas radio station finished at the end of December. Listeners may need to retune to listen.

Absolute 90s has in recent years been relegated to a number of local DAB multiplexes serving places including Birmingham, Hull, Inverness, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester, after having been originally available on national DAB until around three years ago.

Absolute’s 80s counterpart is currently broadcast on the Sound Digital (Digital 2) multiplex with around 75% UK coverage. Absolute 90s will reach over 90% of the population via DAB.

Announcing the arrival of the station next Monday, Absolute Radio’s content director Paul Sylvester commented:
“The 90s renaissance is stronger than ever and Absolute Radio 90s perfectly encapsulates the decade’s music and culture. Already a fully-fledged radio stationn with a brillant line-up of presenters and programmes, we’re delighted to be able to share the station with a bigger audience.”
