Heart Xmas 24/7 radio station launches

Sod it, let’s get the decorations up and the eggnog flowing too

Heart radio has once again launched Heart Xmas – a 24-hour Christmas radio station packed with every festive banger you could wish for on your Christmas list.

First launched in 2016, Heart Xmas was the rebranding of Heart Extra and features all the sounds of the holiday season. It’s been running every year since and this year it returns with its earliest launch date ever – 10 days before its 2020 debut.

We’ve heard of people putting decorations up early but mid-October is something else entirely, we must say!

Still, we’re not complaining, these last two years have been awkward and difficult enough – especially last Christmas – so why not make up for lost time and pretend like the holiday season is already here?

You can listen to the station on Global Player and DAB radio or simply via your web browser online – and it’s available 24/7, no less. You love to see it.

You’ll be able to get the frequency in the following areas across the UK:

  • Berkshire and North Hampshire
  • Bristol
  • Cambridgeshire
  • Cornwall
  • Derbyshire
  • Devon
  • Essex
  • Hereford/Worcestershire
  • Herts/Beds/Bucks
  • Humberside
  • Kent
  • Leeds
  • Leicestershire
  • Lincolnshire
  • London
  • Norfolk
  • North Yorkshire
  • Northamptonshire
  • Nottinghamshire
  • Oxfordshire
  • Peterborough
  • Plymouth
  • Somerset
  • South Yorkshire
  • Swindon
  • West Wiltshire

They’ll be on air until December 27 so you might as well start soaking up the Christmas cheer.

Some of you sensible folk have probably already sorted some of your Christmas shopping (don’t rub it in), so why not reward yourself with a bit of The Pogues or Mariah Carey?

In fact, we might whack a bit on now…
