About XS Manchester 106.1

Listen live to the internet radio of XS Manchester, which launched in 2008 as 106.1 Rock Radio, and after a few name changes, finally in 2016 got its current name. The station is in the ownership of Communicorp UK Ltd.
The broadcaster works as a local radio station serving primarily Manchester and North West England with locally related news, travel-traffic information, and weather updates. XS Manchester is home of the XS Football Social, so the radio is dedicated to be the number one correspondent of Manchester's sports community. XS Manchester’s playlist brings rock and indie rock music all day long without decade restrictions. The daytime’s schedule is filled with talkative shows with presenters through the day, starting with the Breakfast Show on weekdays from 6am to 10am commanded by Alex James, and on weekends from 8am to 12am Shell Zenner takes the air.

XS Manchester 106.1 's slogan: “Let The Good Times Roll”

Ofcom rejects XS Manchester’s request of format change
XS Manchester’s request of format change to rebrand as Capital XTRA has been rejected by Ofcom. The request was made last October by Communicorp (now known as CCUK) to change from a rock and speech service for 35 – 64-year-olds, to an urban contemporary music service featuring music of an Afro-Caribbean origin and was subject to a public consultation. Ofcom originally said it was minded to approve the change, which would have resulted in Global’s Capital XTRA service being broadcast on 106.1FM in Manchester, closing XS. There were over 70 individuals and organisations who responded, with all but two opposed to the proposed changes...More >>

Opinion: RadioToday industry predictions for 2020
One thing is for sure – radio is changing at an incredible pace. Keeping up with emerging products and making full use of smart technology is key. But whilst the art of ‘input’ is changing, the ‘output’ has remained fairly static for many decades. Listeners can still hear a friendly voice on the radio at all hours of the day – the major difference is where the voice is located and when they were recorded. But let’s dig deeper down into the industry and see what 2020 might bring...More >>
