The Absolute Radio family of stations is made up of Absolute Radio, Absolute Classic Rock, Absolute Radio 60s, Absolute Radio 70s, Absolute 80s, Absolute Radio 90s and Absolute Radio 00s. From landmark documentaries to intimate live sessions, from festival exclusives to specialist programming.
Absolute Radio is commercial radio’s most ambitious and innovative brand, home to a whole host of fantastic radio talent and the No Repeat Guarantee. We champion the very best in rock music, from breaking new acts such as George Ezra and James Bay to favourites such as Coldplay and Foo Fighters; along with the best of rock legends like The Beatles, Bon Jovi and Queen. We don’t do plastic pop pap – we do real guitars, real drums and real singers.
ONE STATION, SEVEN PLAYLISTS
Dave Berry and Matt Dyson wake up our listeners every morning, and on top of having the biggest guests and greatest gigs, Breakfast Show listeners will continue to enjoy UK radio’s first ever tailored music service. Ground-breaking technology allows listeners to choose the music they want to hear on the breakfast show. From Absolute Radio 60s to 00s and Classic Rock, there’s seven options. Put simply, one button is pressed and seven different songs play out across our stations. Each is matched for duration, mood, artists and tempo, meaning that when the microphone re-opens, there’s no jarring and all of the services unite for the link.
NO REPEAT GUARANTEE
We like to keep things fresh with our No Repeat Guarantee, which means you’ll never hear the same song twice between 9am and 5pm, 5 days a week.
Absolute Radio boasts a wealth of award-winning comedy talent. We are the home of Frank Skinner, Jason Manford and star of the IT crowd Matt Berry in his role as the voice of Absolute Radio. We have pioneered ad-funded comedy programming too, producing ‘Masters of Man Time’ with Just For Men hosted by Danny Wallace, the ‘David Bowie Is’ documentary with the V&A fronted by Tim Minchin and ‘The Alternative Vote’ panel show with Matt Forde.
