New LGBT radio station launches

New LGBT radio station launches

A new internet radio station has been launched and it sounds very promising. Sunday 14th of July 2019 GlitterBox was born. The project, completely no-profit and without advertising, is ran by 4 enthusiastic men: Eugenio Ceriello, Diego Paganelli, Michael Walton-Dalzell and Ross Walton-Dalzell. The station is owned by the Canadian company “Torontocast” but managed almost entirely from UK.

The Station started with a special show, recorded the previous Saturday at Pride In London, with interviews and backstage. The team is intentioned to keep following the biggest LGBT+ events in UK for the whole summer, travelling across the country.

“GlitterBox” wants to be a different kind of LGBT+ station. Good music to dance and sing, of course, but also explore interested topics that are out of the mainstream world of modern radio.

The music format is quite simple: “if you don’t sing it, or dance it, then it’s not on the station”. A very inclusive playlist, comprehensive of big classics (from Sister Sledge to ABBA) and more recent songs (From RuPaul to Todrick Hall and Lizzo).

Other productions have been announced:

A weekly “update” live from UK with all the best news of the week around LGBT+, Science, Culture and Music (starting in August)

A new show (“Secret Horizons”) broadcasted from the most ghosts haunted location in UK which will perform paranormal investigations on air to understand if the venue’s “fame” is real (from September)

A weekly show dedicated to the Eurovision Song Contest (from September, live from Italy)

The overall format wants to be popular, but also different from the other LGBT+ stations currently on air.

“GlitterBox” has also started a heavy social media presence, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, where the team share interesting news and facts.
