At long last, the UAE will not have to ‘make do’ with TOP 40 on repeat, as on October 23, DANCE 97.8 FM – the UAE’s first dedicated dance music radio station launches.

The focus is set to be on more music and less talk. (We hope this stays)

The first dance music station in the region, DANCE 97.8 FM will broadcast the best in dance music across various genres, with an emphasis on live music during evening and weekend shows, featuring globally recognised names such as David Guetta, Rodger Sanchez and Paul Van Dyk.
