Angel Radio Norwich DAB Initiative

From Tony Smith, Angel Radio:

Following a series of letters in the Norwich Evening News from older people bemoaning the fact that there is nothing on the radio catering for them, I wrote to the editor, David Powles, and told him Angel Radio is available on DAB in Norwich and we would send free digital radios, to the total value of £1,000, to the first people aged over 65 who wrote to me by letter (not email).

The Norwich Evening News published my piece and we have now donated £1,000 worth of brand new DAB radios to older people in Norwich. The radios fit with Angel Radio’s nostalgic broadcasts as they are retro-designed:
