Forever FM becomes a real station

Perfect for the Car Share...

Comedy news

Forever FM, the fictional radio station from Peter Kay’s Car Share, has become a real broadcaster.

The new station even features the voice of Rob Charles, who plays breakfast DJ Mike on the BBC One comedy.

With a pledge to be ‘good, positive, fun and joyous’, Forever FM can be heard on DAB in Greater Manchester, where Kay’s show is set, and online.

It has been launched by former Key 103 and Capital presenter Steve Penk, who also runs Radio Dead – featuring only music from dead artists – and a ‘wind-up channel’ featuring his telephone pranks.

He told industry website Radio Today: ‘You can’t help but smile when you hear Forever FM and we need more things in the world that make us smile and happy. 

‘I wanted to do it as a tribute really to Peter Kay, Sian Gibson, Paul Coleman, Tim Reid and the whole team behind TV’s Car Share, I hope they like it and enjoy listening’

Forever FM will broadcast no news, just ‘uplifting singalong music’ 24-hours a day.
