As Christmas is fast approaching you may find yourself unable to escape one thing, Christmas music! Love it or hate it, the same old songs get played...
There are two roles within the music side of Xpress Radio, one being playlist co-ordinator. This role consists of creating an A, B and C playlist to broadcast. The A playlist consists of bigger names such as The 1975 and Florence And The Machine. The B playlist features artists that are becoming more popular, for example GIRLI and Sigrid. I try and include artists who are different sounding and creating a buzz in the music industry! With the C playlist I focus on really new names, especially those that are Welsh as Xpress is keen to promote and support the local music scene. It’s a great opportunity to be featured on the playlist as it gives you a lot of exposure due to Xpress being the biggest student radio station in Wales. Tuning into Xpress is a fab way to discover new music. I aim to create a playlist that features a lot of different genres, so anyone can tune in and enjoy what we play!
