Well I've been listening to Smooth Xmas in short bursts for the last few days and I've been pleasantly surprised. Lots of old favourites and some real oldies that I've never heard or R2 and NO ADS apart from what is on the normal Smooth radio at that particular time.

I'll give it the thumbs up!

Although I listen to normal Smooth Radio I haven't heard the Xmas station

Do they have presenters or is it simply music interrupted by a few adverts? Confused

I've not heard any presenters and there are no commercials bar a few smooth programme ads.

Smooth Christmas will launch again this year on digital One platform until Boxing Day. That will mean Smooth will have three stations after Smooth 70's was launched early this year.

I'll look forward to that, a bit nearer the time though!

Last year they played a few I'd not heard for a long time.
