TeamRock Radio unveils launch video
TeamRock Radio has released a 30-second commercial advertising its forthcoming launch. It will be broadcast on the big screens at Download this weekend – and you can get a sneak peek below.
TeamRock Radio will launch officially on Sunday, June 16 at 11.58pm. As that unconventional time indicates, the first song to be played on the station will be Iron Maiden’s 2 Minutes To Midnight.
TeamRock Radio’s launch will be the culmination of the Download festival, which starts on June 14 with Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein as headliners.
Once the festival ends, TeamRock Radio will make its official debut. Directly after spinning the Maiden classic the station will broadcast The Best Of Download 2013, a retrospective show telling the story of this year’s festival.
In the lead-up to Download, TeamRock Radio will be sponsoring the Heavy Metal Truants – a 161-mile bicycle ride leaving Alexandra Palace on June 12 and arriving at the festival at midday on the 14th. This charity event will raise money for children’s charities, Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and Childline.
Billy Anderson, CEO of TeamRock, said: “This is an exciting time for TeamRock Radio. After three long years, seeing our dreams eventually coming together will be very special, and to launch at such a prestigious event as Download makes it even more amazing.
“I will also be taking part in the last leg of the Heavy Metal Truants with Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson and the Editors of all three of TeamRock’s stable of magazines – Classic Rock, Metal Hammer and Prog.”
TeamRock Radio is currently broadcasting test transmissions. It is available on national DAB digital radio, through Radio Player and TuneIn apps, and at teamrockradio.com
