BFBS launches new radio station: BFBS Best of British

BFBS launches new radio station: BFBS Best of British


07 Feb, 2022

BFBS recently launched its new radio station, BFBS Best of British, available worldwide online, via the BFBS iPhone and Android apps, and on your smart speaker …

You may remember that, back in October 2021, BFBS gave its listeners the chance to vote for a brand-new station from one of the following options: Best of British, Chilled, Country, Gold – 70s, Kids or Soul, or even to suggest one for themselves. Best of British that came out on top and is available to listen to now. The station plays the very best that British music has to offer through the decades, non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Says Simon Monk, BFBS deputy director radio & live events: ‘At BFBS we don’t just want to make sure that we are bringing our listeners the best music – we want to make sure it’s the music they want to listen to. That’s why we’re so pleased to launch BFBS Best of British, giving them access to a station with music from a genre they have chosen all day, every day, helping them feel even more connected to home.’

The BFBS portfolio of stations also includes BFBS Beats (the hottest dance and R&B tracks), BFBS Edge (the best new and classic rock and indie) and BFBS Rewind (great music from years gone by). Like all of these stations, BFBS Best of British will also be accessible via the new BFBS radio app, which is available for download to all Android and Apple devices. 

As well as accessing all the BFBS radio stations, anywhere in the world, the app allows listeners to hear and download their favourite music and BFBS podcasts, listen to catch-up services, browse scheduling information, and more. 

The app is available to download from wherever you get your apps. If you already have the existing BFBS app you will just need to run an update to access the new content (if you have your app set to auto-update, then this should already have happened automatically).
