Upcoming Birthdays: RadioPlayer – March 31st! We wish you many Wi-Fi returns…

15 Mar

The 31st March marks the one year anniversary of the brilliant RadioPlayer, the non-for-profit industry online radio player part funded by the BBC and commercial radio industry. Boasting some impressive first year listening figures (7 million visitors and counting…).

With news that they are developing mobile apps in time for the summer and the announcement yesterday that Virgin Media will be providing free wi-fi on the London Underground. Also combine this with the world’s media descending on the capital all using London underground during the summer’s Olympic games, festooned with the latest smart phones from around the world, paves the way for a very strong summer for commercial radio and RadioPlayer/digital listening.

At Radio Experts we don’t really need a second invitation to listen to radio but the chance to sit and listen whilst we watch the world go by on Kings Cross, Victoria Line platform 3, might come in handy once or twice during the Olympic Crush!
