A NEW 24-hour English radio station has launched across the Balearic Islands. Radio OneMallorca is a collaboration with English Radio Mallorca and is headed by Laura Penn and Richie Prior who have returned to the airwaves with their popular breakfast show. “It is great to be back seven days a week,” said Laura who has been presenting weekend programmes on Radio Marratxi.
These will continue but are complimented by the broadcasts of Radio OneMallorca, a radio station that is online and on mobile phones.
“There is a huge demand to know what is going on here on the islands from residents and visitors alike” said Richie.
As well as the return of the “Penn and Prior Breakfast Show”, the new station has world-famous DJ Des Mitchell presenting a weekday Drivetime programme and specialist shows at the weekend including the “Ex-Pat Chart”, “The Mitchell Project Sessions”, “Soul Kitchen” and the infamous “Pirates Radio Show”.
“Technology has moved on quickly” said Laura, “now people can listen to radio on the internet and with a radio adapter cable they can listen to internet radio in their cars.” Radio OneMallorca is giving away free adapter cables and car stickers in various outlets across the island.
