WARNING It is with great regret that we have to announce the planned withdrawal of this radio app from the Windows Phone Store on 8th February 2013. We are responding to a request from the BBC who, quite rightly, made us aware that we were not fully operating within their Terms of Business Use.

The good news is that you can continue to enjoy this station after 8th February by installing our Radio Lounge app. This has a free trial mode that gives access to this radio station with the bonus of several others. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope you continue to enjoy our apps.
