We’ve not even reached November yet, but Heart has switched on Christmas with the launch of its festive sister station earlier than ever before.
As the clocks turn back and British Summer Time ends, it’s officially Christmas time with Heart Xmas playing non-stop festive favourites.
With just over 60 days to go until the big day, Heart Xmas is “turning up festive feel good” with a seasonal soundtrack including Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You, Wham!’s Last Christmas, Chris Rea’s Driving Home For Christmas and Band Aid’s Do They Know it’s Christmas?
Heart Xmas is available on DAB digital radio and on Global Player on your smart, iOS or Android device and at heartxmas.co.uk.
Andy Everett, Managing Editor of Heart, said: “With the nation turning to radio for light-hearted escapism and comfort, we are thrilled to bring listeners some festive feel good cheer earlier than ever before this year as we launch Heart Xmas today!
“With the clocks going back, we’re switching on Christmas as Heart’s much-loved festive sister station returns, playing the nation’s favourite festive tunes from the past 50 years, non-stop, 24/7. The countdown to the big day is officially on here on Heart Xmas!”
Heart Breakfast’s Jamie Theakston said: “It may be October, but we’re kick-starting our Christmas countdown on Heart earlier than ever before! As the clocks go back, we’re bringing the festive feel good forward to help lift the spirits of the nation over the next few months.”
If you love Christmas songs, at least you’ve got a couple of months to enjoy them, then perhaps it’ll be time to start thinking about Easter!
We've switched on Heart Xmas to turn up the festive feel good! Anyone else BUZZING Christmas has come early?! 🎄 🎅 ⛄️
