Denmark Radio has come a long way since the first tentative signs were broadcast by Marconi, and without providing an accurate count there are a few hundred Denmark radio stations broadcasting across all of the frequency spectrum, from short wave through long wave, medium wave and of course FM VHF.
All these Denmark radio stations are broadcasting with a medium that’s been exploited from the first years of the 20th century, but with the coming of age of the net in this broadband enabled world, higher fidelity stereo broadcasts are now accessible to anybody which has a broadband internet connection.
All genres are catered for and a massive choice of talk only dab radio denmark channels, and while they are growing in popularity, the most listened to Denmark radio channels are the ones which are an eclectic mix of music and chat (although a number of the presenters have an excessive amount of chat).
Classic country stations and contemporary RnB channels vie for listeners with easy listening in addition to soul and centre of the street.
Many radio stations in the Denmark are small locally owned radio stations broadcasting on low power such as Wayland FM in the county of Norfolk, England while others are behemoths born from the pirate radio station heyday in the 1960’s with the arrival of radio, 2, 3 and 4 in the BBC.
The BBC had to mend its ways into a booming market of wealthy teens and youth market and the recent introduction of miniaturized transistor radios (remember those).
In the intervening time the BBC has captured a large share of the Denmark radio listening public; however lately since the advent of commercial radio stations, the first of which was LBC (London Broadcasting Company) which began broadcasting in the London region and was the beginning of what was to become a radio channel revolution which has carried on into the present day.
Now in the comparatively brave new world of the net and with lots of people owning and using little broadband enabled handheld devices, cellular phones and laptops, in addition to home computers, the online radio revolution is in full swing, again changing the face of radio broadcasting and bringing it kicking and screaming like a new born child into the warmth of a 21st century dawn.
The next revolution in radio broadcasting, not only for the Denmark but for the wide world generally will come via the largest machine the world has ever seen – the net.
