BFBS Big Salute

Wednesday 20th October 2021

BFBS launches a new Radio app, available for all Android and Apple devices.  

As well as accessing all the BFBS radio stations, anywhere in the world, the app now allows listeners to hear and download their favourite music and BFBS Podcasts, listen to the Catch-Up services, browse all the scheduling information and more.  

It’s available to download, from wherever people get their apps. If they already have the existing BFBS app then they can just run an update – and if they have their apps on auto-update, then it’ll happen automatically.  

Simon Monk, BFBS Deputy Director Radio & Live Events says:At BFBS we strive to ensure that our listeners have the most up-to-date means to access their favourite music and podcasts wherever they are in the world. This app will enable them to listen and catch up with all our latest content and help them feel even more connected to home.”   

Alongside launching the new app BFBS Radio is giving its audience the chance to choose a new BFBS radio station, based on their favourite music genre.  

There is already BFBS Beats (the hottest dance and R&B tracks), BFBS Edge (the best new and classic rock and indie), BFBS Rewind (great music from years gone by) and now BFBS Radio listeners have the opportunity to choose their very own new station.  

Listeners can choose from one of the following options: Best of British, Chilled, Country, Gold – 70’s, Kids or Soul, or even suggest one themselves. 

Voting will stop at 1200 UKT on the 1st of November 2021 and listeners can cast their vote.
