CMU's Andy Malt writes.....Children's radio broadcaster Fun Kids has added eight new digital stations to its roster. This includes what the company is claiming is Europe's first classical music radio station aimed at children.

Fun Kids Classical is being launched in partnership with pianist Lang Lang, who has worked for many years to engage young people with classical music. "I am passionate about giving children the opportunity to hear classical music from a young age, so it's wonderful to work with Fun Kids Classical to help inspire a new generation of classical music lovers", he says.

Fun Kids boss Matt Deegan adds: "We know how much children enjoy our regular Fun Kids and Fun Kids Junior channels, but we feel that as grown ups have lots of options about what to tune in to, that kids should have that choice as well. We're over the moon to be working with Lang Lang to help curate Fun Kids Classical and we are excited about bringing classical music to a young audience".

The other newly launched Fun Kids stations are: Fun Kids Animals, Fun Kids Silly, Fun Kids Party, Fun Kids Pop Hits, Fun Kids Naps, Fun Kids Classics and Fun Kids Soundtracks.
