Virgin Radio Groove launches on DAB in London and Scotland

A new digital radio station from Virgin Radio is now available on DAB digital radio in London and Central Scotland.

Virgin Radio Groove will play dance and R&B music from the 1970s to today. The station says it will play “stone-cold classics” from artists like Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston, as well as more recent songs from Rihanna and David Guetta. Other artists currently being played on the station include Kylie, Average White Band and Snap!

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show will start the day on the station from 6am, followed by Chris Brooks (10am-2pm), Steve Denyer (2pm-6pm) and Bam (6pm-10pm). The new digital station joins Virgin Radio Anthems and Virgin Radio Chilled which launched a year ago.
