History[edit]

dabbl, was a user-controlled radio station broadcast on the Internet and on DAB Digital Radio in Cardiff 24 hours a day and in London from 7pm to 6am daily. Its content was chosen by members of Absolute Radio's website VIP Service, who select songs which are then voted for. Songs with the most votes are then broadcast. It operated from 1 October 2009 until 25 August 2010.[1]

CTRL[edit]

dabbl first appeared on DAB in London under the name "CTRL", however this was just broadcasting the "Absolute Radio" launch clock sound.
