BBC to launch visual radio online


January 15, 2009

The BBC are taking radio to another level by launching the trial version of Visual Radio, which runs in line with radio shows and offers the audience the chance to do more than just sit and listen to the radio.

The trial starts on the Chris Moyles show in the morning.

All people have to do is to visit the webpage for each show where they will see a variety of information including the tracks that are currently being played, contact details, and more.

The system allows the users to see what is going on in the studio and check out the details of the track currently being played.

There is the opportunity to send short messages to the studio through an instant messenger type interface.

The trial is only going on for the rest of the week, so it is going to be a case of catch it while you can.
