Former Radio 1 Breakfast show presenter Mike Read has officially opened up a new online radio station founded by former Radio Luxembourg presenter Tony Prince.United DJs launched at 7am Monday 2nd April 2018 and has a number of radio presenter who were well known in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
The new station will be run from Tony’s studios in Maidenhead and Tony says the station will be live 24 hours a day.
Tony says: “Just like the Pirate era the people who became DJs out of their love for music will shape United DJs Radio. I also have certain non-DJs with fabulous A&R skills recommending new music. The DJs on UDJ can play just what they like within a format of a 7-decade mix but they must play an element of new music releases. The DJs are in effect their own programme director.
“We are a radio team who are right behind the music industry and hope that our global attitude to streaming radio, will have a positive impact for everyone. At this time we have no interest in FM or DAB and are convinced, the moment the internet streamed into the car radio, the radio once again faces an enormous game changer.”
Tony appeared on the RadioToday Programme to talk about the new venture recently, and you can hear the launch below.
