Magic Radio to play 100% Christmas music for the festive season

Magic Radio has announced that once again, it will be switching its playlist to 100% Christmas music from tomorrow morning at 9am until midnight on the 27th December.

The announcement was made at The London Palladium this afternoon (Sunday), at a special event hosted by Magic Radio. ‘Magic of Christmas, with new film Last Christmas’ saw performances by Robbie Williams, Will Young, Simply Red, Jack Savoretti and Beverley Knight. Magic Breakfast presenter Harriet Scott was joined on hosting duties by Martin and Shirlie Kemp, who also performed a festive song for the sold-out audience.

Magic 100% Christmas promises the most-loved Christmas pop hits from the last fifty years – with an emphasis on 80s and 90s classics such as WHAM!, ‘Last Christmas’, The Pogue’s ‘Fairytale of New York’, Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want Christmas’, Elton John’s ‘Step into Christmas’ and Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmastime’.

The switch tomorrow morning will be made by Robbie Williams, who will be in the studio to join breakfast host Harriet Scott and guest presenter Rick Astley, to press the button to turn the station, 100% Christmas.

Speaking at today’s Magic of Christmas event, Robbie Williams said “I think it’s great that Magic Radio are doing this. I mean, let’s face it who doesn’t love Christmas music? I’ve even done a whole album of Christmas songs! It’s a sure-fire way to get you into the festive spirit.”

Breakfast presenters Ronan Keating and Harriet Scott said, “We LOVE Christmas here at Magic Radio so thought, what better way to celebrate the season than dedicating our entire playlist to festive hits?  So whether you’re online Christmas shopping, decorating your tree, or just sat in the office counting down the days until you can put on your out-of-office, we can give you the perfect festive soundtrack!”
