Nova stations join the world to play You'll Never Walk Alone

Friday 20 March, 2020

NOVA Entertainment has joined forces with radio stations around the world, to simultaneously play ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’

It was a sign of unity in the face of the coronavirus pandemic broadcast on Friday 20 March at 6.45pm AEST.
 
An initiative arising from 3FM’s Dutch radio presenter Sander Hoogendoorn, and supported by BBC Radio 1’s Greg James, BBC radio stations and countries across Europe including Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, Latvia, Slovakia, Romania and Spain, NOVA Entertainment felt it was important for its stations in Australia to support this important initiative.
 
NOVA’s Chief Programming & Marketing Officer, Paul Jackson, says “In this rapidly changing landscape, there has never been a better time for us to band together across the world. When we heard about this wonderful initiative, we wanted to show our solidarity and join our international colleagues to provide some positivity and hope. We feel it is a very powerful song and now is the time for us all to unite as a global force. What better way to do that than through the power of music and this empowering song.”
 
“You’ll Never Walk Alone” was written by Oscar Hammerstein II and composed by Richard Rodgers and released in the USA in 1945.
 
It spawned a number of cover versions, including the most successful released by Gerry and the Pacemakers in 1963, which has become the iconic anthem of the Liverpool Football Club.
 
“You’ll Never Walk Alone” will be played simultaneous across the Nova and smoothfm Networks, as well as on radio stations across the world tonight, Friday 20 March at 6.45pm
