Global launch ‘Smooth Relax’ station

Smooth Radio, from Global this week announced a brand new radio station, Smooth Relax, dedicated to “Your Relaxing Music Mix”.

Smooth Relax launched across the UK earlier this week (Monday 8 January), playing a mix of the most relaxing pop songs of all time from some of the world’s biggest artists including Lionel Richie, Adele, George Michael, Elton John, Whitney Houston and Phil Collins.

Ashley Tabor-King CBE, Founder & Executive President of Global:

“Smooth has enjoyed tremendous growth particularly recently, and at the same time, the main Smooth channel has evolved and grown. I’m delighted that we are offering something new for listeners from the heartland of Smooth’s music mix. This station has been created to be a non-stop sanctuary to our listeners, an oasis of calm. Your relaxing music mix. It’s fantastic to welcome Smooth Relax to the Global family.”

From finding your oasis of calm during the morning commute or school run, to unwinding at the end of a hectic day, Smooth Relax has the most relaxing music mix for every part of the day and throughout the night.

Smooth Relax joins sister stations Smooth, Smooth Chill and Smooth Country on DAB Digital Radio across the UK, on Global Player – the official Smooth app – and at as well as on smart speakers.

The launch of Smooth Relax follows the massive growth seen by Smooth Radio, which has 6.2 million weekly listeners*, including its sister stations Smooth Chill and Smooth Country, which have nearly 1 million weekly listeners between them. The move to these stations as well as independent Boom Radio follows the BBC focusing on youth, with Radio 2 now aimed at a much younger audience and no signs of the corporation providing a Radio 2 Extra for those now left without a Beeb station for their age range.

Senior Managing Editor for Smooth, Heart and Gold, Sally Ardis:

“We know our listeners love “always the best music” on Smooth and I’m delighted to be able to bring them more of the sanctuary part of Smooth, a restorative retreat, an oasis of calm, from what can sometimes be a hectic life.  From waking up and feeling an instant wave of relaxation to drifting off at night, Smooth Relax is your relaxing music mix.”
