Cruise FM



Although not licenced by Ofcom, as Cruise FM only broadcasts through the internet, using various portals such as tune-in, our own player app and Pure Connect we have decided to place a public file on the website to give you an idea of what you can expect from Cruise FM. We hold the necessary licences provided by PRS for Music and PPL to broadcast online, and this is indicated by the use of their logos on the home page of this website.

News Bulletins

News bulletins are broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are provided by Radio News Hub on behalf of Cruise FM. The service also provides us with the latest Sport, Showbiz and Business news which is broadcast at various times during the week.

Each day, the news bulletins will run as 2 minute bulletins between 0600 and 1800 - at all other times the bulletins are 1 minute updates. Radio News Hub are also supplying a 10-minute news programme which is broadcast at 1300 on Weekday lunchtimes.

Programme Schedule

An up-to-date version of the station's programme schedule is available here.


In order to provide a 24/7 service there is the use of automated music output which is provided by the station's playout software which is supplied by StationPlaylist. The system allows for live, pre-recorded and automated output and ensures that the station is always on air. The system also monitored to alert station staff of any problems with the transmission feed so that any interuption can be dealt with quickly.

Music Playlist

Cruise FM prides itself on the wide variety of music that is included within the programme service. The music core choice ranges from 1964 to the current music charts with a sprinkling of new and pre-release songs, the database does contain music prior to 1964 so that could be incorporated into the programme service as required. The weekly playlist is published on the website and is available here.
