About The Wave

Listen to the internet radio of The Wave live, which started in 1995 as Swansea Bay’s local radio station. The radio is owned by Bauer Radio Ltd., and part of the Planet Radio Group. The playlist of The Wave radio offers a more diverse musical palette than typical pop-oriented stations, because in addition to pop, it enriches its repertoire with rock, urban, and dance genres. The song selection primarily rides the waves of the present, occasionally punctuated by older tracks that expand the timeline of the wave-palette. Being a local station, The Wave consistently delivers pertinent news, travel-traffic updates, and weather information for the residents of Swansea Bay and South West Wales. The broadcaster airs "The Wave Breakfast with Leigh and Claire", a lively morning show that runs from 6am to 10am on weekdays. Claire Scott and Leigh Jones infuse Swansea Bay's foggy mornings with cheerful conversations and tuneful melodies, creating a joyful start to the day. "The Hits UK Chart" is broadcasted from 4pm to 7pm on Sundays, which is Bauer's own chart show led by Sam Thompson, with the hottest 40 songs.

The Wave slogan: "The Biggest Hits - The Biggest Throwbacks"
