The commercial radio industry has revealed plans for the second UK Music Week. The event will see over 250 stations across five commercial radio networks collaborating on a week of special programming.
The week, which will run from May 21 to May 28, will see programming tailored to suit the individual needs of the networks taking part. Programming will be split into contemporary hit radio, adult contemporary, gold, rock and rhythmic. It will also be supported on EMAP TV channels, Q and The Hits.
The week will include lunchtime sessions and interviews with artists such as Amy Winehouse and Mika for the contemporary hits stations, a listener vote on the greatest guitar band ever for the rock stations and the story behind the songs, a series of documentaries, for the gold stations.
Andrew Harrison, chief executive of RadioCentre, says: “The stations are pulling together some fantastic programming for what will be a great week to tune into commercial radio.”
