A radio station playing only Christmas tunes 24/7 is back on air in the UK

Don't say it's too early, we don't want to hear it.

It’s that time of year again… a radio station playing only Christmas tunes 24/7 is now back on the airwaves in the UK.

Too early to say the ‘C word’? Never mind, you’ve already clicked on this article.

Autumn may have only just started, and we may still have all the fun of Halloween and Bonfire Night to get stuck into first, but for some people, the festive feels are already in the air – but whether or not you’re in the camp of it being too early to talk about Christmas at this point, it’ll soon be pretty tricky to escape from.

Especially not when a radio station that’s dedicated to playing non-stop Christmas bangers has just relaunched in the UK.

You heard that right – Christmas songs, 24-hours a day, seven days a week.


If you’re the type that’s got Mariah blasting in September, and like to start the day with Slade baring out loud, then you should be absolutely made up to hear that Heart Radio has revealed its much-loved festive station, Heart Xmas, is now back up and running.

With just over three months to go until the big day, Heart Xmas has switched-on earlier than ever before this year, and is now live to listen to on DAB digital radio and online via Global Player.


Mariah Carey, Michael Buble, The Pogues, Wham!, Wizzard, Slade, and Shakin Stevens are just some of the artists with those classic Christmas hits you can expect to hear in the run-up to December, as Heart says its dedicated Christmas station promises to bring listeners “the ultimate festive soundtrack at all hours of the day”.

Done denying the festive season’s just round the corner?

If you’re on board and fancy getting into the Christmas spirit, then you can now tune into the Heart Xmas radio on your DAB digital radio, Global Player, or via the Heart website.
