P3 specializes in popular music from both established and upcoming artists, with popular entertainment shows and hourly three-minute news bulletins. The network also covers major sporting events.
It commenced broadcasting on 1 January 1963 as Musikradioen in response to the popularity of the offshore pirate radio station Radio Mercur, which had been outlawed by the Danish parliament in June 1962. In April 1966 the station became Danmarks Radio Program 3 and to Danmarks Radio P3 in 1971.
