New DAB service Amazing Radio to play only new music by unsigned artists,
on channel previously occupied by birdsong.

Monday 1 June 2009 07.18 BST

A new national radio station, Amazing Radio, launched on digital audio
broadcasting (DAB) today playing entirely new music by unsigned singers
and bands – but replacing the "birdsong" service.

The station will play songs uploaded to music website amazingtunes.com.
Launched in 2006, it currently has about 15,000 tracks, all of which can
be downloaded with 70% of the revenue going to the artist.

However, while the station is good news for new music fans, it is bad
news for the small but committed band of listeners to the birdsong
channel, which was due to close last night.
