The Breeze (radio station)

The Breeze was the name of two easy listening radio stations in Essex and Surrey.[1] The stations are today part of the Gold network.

History

Breeze Essex

Starting life as the medium wave frequencies of Essex Radio, the frequencies split in July 1989, when Breeze AM was born. It later changed name to simply Breeze, then The Breeze. In 1999, the GWR Group bought Essex Radio and Breeze became Classic Gold Breeze despite petitioning by locals. The word Breeze was later dropped as it became part of the Classic Gold Digital network.[2]

Breeze Surrey

Breeze 1521 was formerly known as Fame 1521, Mercury Xtra and Extra AM. It came about when Mercury FM spilit its AM and FM frequencies to form two services. Just like its sister station in Essex it became Classic Gold Breeze then it became part of the Classic Gold Digital network.[2]

Today

Since August 2007 after another take over by Global Radio, both services have became Gold and offer very few local programmes.[3] At present Breeze Digital Radio is an online station with a similar music policy as both UK services.
