David Bowie, Oasis, Craig David, Blur, Spice Girls, The Jam, Coldplay – there is no denying that British music is iconic. 

To celebrate everything British music has to offer, BFBS has put on its union jack dress, Dr Martens boots and star glasses and launched a new radio station, 'BFBS Best Of British'.

In October 2021, BFBS gave its listeners the chance to vote for a brand-new station from one of the following options:

  • Best of British 
  • Chilled 
  • Country 
  • Gold – 70’s 
  • Kids 
  • Soul 
  • Suggest your own 

Best of British took the majority vote and is available to listen to now - here.

As the name suggests, the station plays great non-stop music, from the very best British music has to offer through the decades, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. 

Speaking about the launch of the new station, Simon Monk, BFBS Deputy Director Radio & Live Events, said:

"At BFBS we don't just want to make sure that we are bringing our listeners the best music – we want to make sure it's the music they want to listen to.

"That's why we're so pleased to launch 'BFBS Best of British', giving them access to a station with music from a genre they have chosen all day, every day - and help them feel even more connected to home." 

BFBS also has some other great stations to please your ears. 

Like all these stations, BFBS Best of British is available to listen to around the world at bfbs.com, via your smart speaker and the new Radio app - available for all Android and Apple devices. 

As well as accessing all the BFBS radio stations, anywhere in the world, the app now allows listeners to hear and download their favourite music and BFBS Podcasts, listen to the Catch-Up services, browse all the scheduling information and more. 

It's available to download from wherever you get your apps. If you already have the existing BFBS app then a simple update will give you the latest version. 

Enjoy losing yourself in the absolute best British music has to offer.
