How have I managed without this for the last three years?
DAB digital radio listeners are again going to be treated to a relaxing rural soundtrack. Following the closure of Oneword, at midnight tonight, listeners tuning into Oneword will find the Birdsong channel has been reinstated for a limited period.
The audio was originally recorded for the test transmission of Classic FM prior to its launch in 1992. It was last used three years ago for the imaginatively named station “D1_temp” and won plaudits from listeners who complained when it was taken off air in June 2005.
Listeners and Birdsong enthusiasts should note the transmission could cease at any time and that the recording is not commercially available.
Birdsong will be broadcast between 0600 and midnight each day.
