British radio stations portal

A single website which offers a one-stop-shop for listeners to tune into all BBC and commercial British radio stations could be available before Christmas.

Director of audio and music at the BBC, Tim Davie, has expressed his support for the plan, which could offer instant, live access for up to 500 different networks.

A beta test of the site is being readied for launch this side of Christmas, with a public launch scheduled in for the first half of 2010.
