MUSIC COLUMN: Tune in to the dead air

It’s often been suggested that popular music radio is in its death throes, with so many people now using Spotify or just listening to mp3s on their phones. So it’s surprising but apt that a couple of new stations have emerged. The first is Radio Dead, which does precisely what the pun suggests – no, not playing tunes by Thom Yorke (although the way celebs have been going this year I should add “at time of going to press”). No, the new station’s remit is to play only records by artists no longer of this world.
