Pirate FM has revealed plans to launch two new radio stations, expanding listener choice in Cornwall and Plymouth.

The first, Pirate Oldies, will play music from the 60s and 70s, mixed with a selection from the 50s and 80s.

The second, Escape, will feature “nothing but the sounds of Cornwall, from the crashing surf of Polzeath to the relaxing sound of birds on Frenchman’s Creek”.


Both radio stations will be available on DAB digital radio, online and on mobile devices via dedicated apps.

The move sees a return to Plymouth for the Cornish radio station, since Pirate Oldies will be available on DAB transmitters on both sides of the Tamar.
