Magic Radio

‘Tis the season to sing along to all your favourite Christmas music!

To get you in the Christmas spirit, our friends at Magic Radio have gone 100% Christmas! Expect non-stop Christmas hits all day, every day for the entire festive period.

Magic 100% Christmas kicked off with the one and only Dolly Parton calling in to Magic Breakfast studio to join Ronan Keating and Harriet Scott.

The ‘Queen of Country’ lead a Christmassy Countdown before the first Christmas track aired and the festive station officially began! This year, the first song played on Magic 100% Christmas was a timeless favourite… Step Into Christmas by Elton John!
