And finally, this weekend Radio Nova is making radio history. Nova is the first Irish radio station to team up with Shazam, the world’s leading music discovery app and they’re giving listeners a chance to win tickets to the Rolling Stones. Once Nova plays a Rolling Stones track across the weekend listeners are encouraged to ‘Shazam’ it and click to win tickets.
