ARC Radio is the brain child of Simon Birds and Charlotte Elizabeth.
As an established presenter, Simon has had much success with his long running radio show CMS - The Collective Music Showcase and a daily show Morning Live, which attracted the attention of Country Music artists including Crissie Rhodes of The Shires and Charlie Worsham amongst others.
These shows, particularly through lockdown, got Simon to thinking how he could meet the gap in the country radio market.
Along with his partner, Charlotte, they realised that country music listeners had increased by 40% during lockdown but that stations were still not offering a full scheduled mix of music.
ARC Radio will be the first of its kind in the UK offering a full schedule with Americana, Roots and Country Music from signed, unsigned and emerging artists. There will also be a range of shows from 50's country through to the present day, specialised shows including Charlotte's very own Nashville news and of course Simon's Drive Time! With quality syndicated shows and special guests, ARC Radio will certainly provide a listening platform for everyone!
