Mix 96 is the Independent Local Radio station for the town of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, England.

History

First airing in 1994, it was the first radio station to gain a permanent licence to broadcast from Aylesbury. The launch slogan was 'Bucks Best Music' but the station now uses the strapline "Your Town, Your Station".

Originally an independent, it was solely owned by local group Bucks Broadcasting Ltd. The original Chairman of Mix 96 was Richard Morris-Adams, MD was Mark Flanagan, SD was Erika Sorby-Firth and PC was Keri Jones.

The group invested in a number of stations throughout the UK including FM 102 The Bear, in Stratford-upon-Avon, 107.7 The Wolf in Wolverhampton, Arrow FM in Hastings and Surf 107 in Brighton.

Fox FM increased their shareholding in Bucks Broadcasting, and were themselves wholly acquired by Capital Radio plc, leading the company to become part of Capital until they were divested to Radio Investments (later known as The Local Radio Company).

MIX 96 is now part of the UKRD Group.

Present format

Its playlist is a mix of contemporary and new hits, and provides local and national news, weather, travel, and whats on information for Aylesbury Vale. The current presenters are Adam Morris, Danny Cox, Nathan Cooper, Neil Quigley, Pete Denton, Richard Hutchinson and Jenny McConnell.
