Steve Penk has started off an Internet Radio Station named Radio Dead! Not as morbid as you may think, only qualification for music is that the artist is dead, Not all 60s stuff either! http://www.stevepenk.co.uk/radio-dead/ He also has a wind up station on air, not sure how often the spoof calls out to innocent members of the public go out. There can’t be enough wind ups to fill 24 hours with surely! http://www.stevepenk.co.uk/wind-up-channel/. Finally he has his music channel, which is very good, and one that I have listened to on and off for some time http://www.stevepenk.co.uk/music-channel/ . The Wind Up Channel is on DAB in one area, sorry but missed the

Chris Evans was on the receiving end of another breakfast show swearing incident today as actor Jeremy Irons dropped the F word.
Both Chris and Jeremy immediately apologised, before some of his team making light of the situation, much to Chris’ annoyance.
Irons was on the show promoting the new Ben Wheatley film High-Rise. The actual sentence went something like: “You know what I do when I find a good actor? I say to him, ‘You have a wonderful voice. Have you ever listened to it?’ And the actor is f**ked”.
“You can’t say that on the BBC!” Chris then said. “So not only is the actor, but so it the programme,” he continued.
New radio station wants you to Sit Breathe Love
SBLSound, an internet radio station aiming to help you relax and manage a hectic lifestyle, has launched today.
The station sits alongside mindfulness and wellbeing website, SitBreatheLove.com and is the brainchild of voice-over Emma Clarke.
Emma says: “The station is very accessible and appeals to both those experienced in practising mindfulness and those looking to find some peace in their busy lives.
“There’s no weirdy beardy whale music here; instead, we’ve built the daytime broadcasts around how our listeners want to spend their perfect day.”
Listeners can start each morning with a ‘welcome the day’ programme (6am – 10am), ‘refresh’ themselves from 10am – 2pm, ‘reflect’ on their day from 7pm and relax with ‘Sounds for Sleeping’ from midnight.
SBL Sound uses international, non-professional voiceovers, aiming to give the new station a global feel. Emma herself is also heard on the station.
“The SitBreatheLove.com website has been live for just over a year. We understand who our audience really is and exactly the kind of things they’re into. This knowledge has been invaluable and has helped us create content our audience loves.”
Emma continued; “If you’ve never meditated and haven’t got a clue what mindfulness is, don’t let that put you off. You don’t have to be a vegan Buddhist yoga enthusiast to enjoy it! If you just want to feel happy and peaceful, SBL Sound is for you.”
The new station started broadcasting online and via an iOS app today, 23rd March.
