Tony Prince has left the station due to some internal problems – this was posted on Facebook today
We have Caroline on three platforms now, am, Internet and DAB in some areas. Also some good test transmissions from DELUX Radio and the former D-Lux Radio. David Symonds is doing a test show identifying as D-Lux at the moment. The station is much more than on oldies station judging by the test programmes, where I have heard a refreshing mix of music. The Internet is awash with plenty of good radio stations.
I was fond of the Jack FM automatic radio system that operated in Oxford on FM, very clever pre-recorded announcements which are amusing as well, and good music. I am not listening to their Jack FM 3 outlet which has some good oldies on it and the same announcer. Not that fond of it’s replacement SAM FM with announcers,
