Capital FM, once London’s largest commercial pop radio station, went national today in a bid to compete with BBC Radio 1. It’s the first of it’s kind in the UK, aiming to reach 6.5 million listeners weekly. In reality though, it’s just a bit of a name change for several outer-London radio stations owned by Global Radio. Each region will still have it’s own staple of local DJ’s, but I suppose all the regions will share the same playlist. Should be interesting.

Remember when you listened to something new for the first time and it sounded so amazing that it nearly blew your mind?
This is the place where those first times are born.
The best of new music from Scandinavia and the rest of the world.
