BBC Wales Launches Its First Pop-up Radio Station
BBC Wales has launched its first ever pop-up radio station, as BBC Radio Cymru Mwy takes to the digital airwaves. A BBC Radio Cymru pilot, the pop-up is part of a series of digital innovations from the national Welsh-language radio station as it approaches its 40th birthday.
For the first time in its history, BBC Radio Cymru will offer a choice of listening with a lively breakfast show on BBC Radio Cymru Mwy. The daily news programme, Post Cyntaf followed by the Aled Hughes Programme will continue on BBC Radio Cymru. The pop-up’s schedule will continue until midday, with an option to experiment occasionally with lunch-time programmes.
From 10am until 12noon new and familiar voices will take to the airwaves; Swansea comedian Steffan Alun, Cardiff DJ Elan Evans and Gwennan Mair from Llan Ffestiniog.
