Kids up and down the country have demanded that the Folder Media’s children’s radio station Fun Kids bans all of the songs from the Disney movie Frozen. So that’s exactly what they’ve done!
Love is an Open Door, Do You Want To Build A Snowman and the iconic Let It Go have been staples on Fun Kids for over two years, but the kids who listen are finally sick of them so the station has been forced to ban them from the playlist.
Station Manager at Fun Kids Matt Deegan says “We’re shocked! We love the songs from Frozen and thought kids loved them too!” In our survey, over two thirds of kids wanted them off, so I’ve told all the presenters to let them go from their shows or face the consequences!”.
A quarter of a million children listen to Fun Kids each week, a number sure to rise as the station begins broadcasting nationally on DAB Digital Radio from Monday.
Matt continues: “As we go from being a London station to a national one from Monday, more kids will be listening in their cars and homes than ever before. Kids’ views often get ignored by grown ups, but at Fun Kids we think they’re our bosses, so if they want a song off, it’s off!”
Fun Kids broadcasts to children aged between 6 and 12 at Breakfast, Hometime and the Weekends whilst playing songs for pre-schoolers in the middle of the day. The Breakfast Show is presented by Sean Thorne alongside his Robot co-host and Dennis and Gnasher from the Beano have a show on weekend mornings.
Recent guests on Fun Kids have ranged from Little Mix and Fleur East to author Danny Wallace and TV stars Dick and Dom.
