Various times during the week
Music Mix is what you hear when the studio is empty and everyone has gone home. But don't panic. We wouldn't leave you without some of your favourite mixes and our backroom boys have been careful in selecting only the best sounds for your delicate, refined and sophisticated ears. Some Music Mix one hour sessions are literally that, an eclectic mix of genres, whilst others have been crafted for a single type of music, from such diverse sources as modern jazz to synthetic soundscapes (and introduced by guest presenters! Woooh!).
The title on the Music Mix flash on the homepage will alert you to the type of music playing that hour (and you can checkout the weekly schedule).
It's all here for your entertainment on Spectrum on Air - we really are - the Colour of Radio!
