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 Sam Fender and Dermot Kennedy 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.


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 10s and Classic Rock, there’s seven options. Put simply, one button is pressed and eight 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. This technology is also used on The Hometime Show – presented by Andy Bush and Richie Firth every weekday from 4pm.


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. If that wasn’t enough, they also have thousands of hours of on-demand comedy programming on their podcast channels too, enjoyed by millions every year.

We put digital innovation at the heart of what we do. With a modern, sleek design, the Absolute Radio website is fully responsive for every screen size and focused on driving listening.

Our homepage is a continuous scroll of information putting all decade stations at the forefront of its offering along with a Listen live button.The main menu is stripped back to just six options; Music, Schedule, Podcasts, Tickets, Win, Live.


Absolute Radio account holders hear fewer adverts, compared to listening through a normal radio. This instream technology ensures users get more songs and allows advertisers to target ads tailored to their age, gender and location.

Absolute Radio Live

From the Isle of Wight festival to Abbey Road, from Hyde Park to St Paul’s Cathedral, Absolute Radio Live is responsible for some of the most spine-tingling live music moments in modern memory.

Coldplay played an unforgettable show for us at the London Palladium and Elbow, Liam Gallagher, Noel Gallagher, Biffy Clyro, Kasabian and Stereophonics have all performed gigs in out-of-this-world places for Absolute Radio.

It’s not just these landmark events where we excel though. We’re also the official radio partner for the Isle of Wight festival, where we’re on-site with exclusive interviews, live tracks and uninterrupted stage sets from star-studded line-ups. Sometimes, there’s no place like home. We open our doors for intimate sessions from stars such as Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Paul Weller, Richard Ashcroft, The Courteeners and Supergrass.

Absolute Radio is proud to support both established legends and the future superstars of music.
