Elf Radio back again for Christmas
“The North Pole’s favourite radio station” is back, with Christmas-focused Elf Radio returning to Australian Radio Network’s (ARN) iHeartRadio.
Elf Radio has been available for over a decade, and this year will air on iHeartRadio.com, and via DAB+ in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane until December 27.
Rival Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) recently launched Santa Radio on DAB+ across the same east-coast cities, touting it as the solution everyone needs to 2020.
Despite Santa Radio’s launch, Elf Radio still claims to be the North Pole’s #1 hit music station.
iHeartRadio’s content director, and for now “chief elf officer”, Brett ‘Nozz’ Nossiter, said audiences deserve the joy of Christmas this year.
“With everything going on in the world right now, audiences deserve the joy of Christmas more than ever. We’re excited to deliver the greatest gift of all to Aussies with Elf Radio. It’s back again in 2020, with music to uplift, entertain and help bring loved ones together these holidays. We’re keeping the playlist fresh with new Christmas hits, along with all the timeless favourites, so Elf Radio once again earns its place as the North Pole’s Number One Hit Music Station,” he said.
The station’s playlist includes Michael Bublé and Mariah Carey, plus fresh hits from Gwen Stefani, Sia, Ariana Grande, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Pentatonix.
