Apple has recruited Radio Disney to offer its songs through iTunes Music Store.

This means Radio Disney listeners can now buy songs from iTunes that they hear on the radio shows. The channel is described as the most popular radio channel for US children.

Radio Disney president and general manager Jean-Paul Colaco said: "iTunes is a great way for our loyal listeners to find and buy the music they love. Consumers count on Radio Disney to bring them fun, contemporary music that's appropriate for families. This is yet another important step in our strategy to bring our music to kids and families in every platform."

The channel covers 97 per cent of the United States through 50 terrestrial stations that include 18 of the top 20 DMAs; XM and Sirius satellite radio and digital cable and satellite TV music provider, Music Choice.

It can also be heard in Japan, UK, Poland, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.
