BFBS Big Salute

Tuesday 11th January 2022

BFBS launches its new radio station ‘BFBS Best of British’, available worldwide online, on the BFBS iPhone and Android app, and on your smart speaker.  

Back in October BFBS gave its listeners the chance to vote for a brand-new station from one of the following options: Best of British, Chilled, Country, Gold – 70’s, Kids or Soul, or even suggest one themselves. Today, BFBS is pleased to announce that Best of British took the majority vote and is available to listen to now.   

The station plays great non-stop music, from the very best British music has to offer through the decades, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  

Simon Monk, BFBS Deputy Director Radio & Live Events says: “At BFBS we don’t just want to make sure that we are bringing our listeners the best music – we want to make sure it’s the music they want to listen to. That’s why we’re so pleased to launch ‘BFBS Best of British’, giving them access to a station with music from a genre they have chosen all day, every day – and help them feel even more connected to home.”     

Within its portfolio of stations BFBS also has BFBS Beats (the hottest dance and R&B tracks), BFBS Edge (the best new and classic rock and indie) and BFBS Rewind (great music from years gone by).  

Like all these stations, BFBS Best of British will also be accessible via the 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.
