What's new in this version (6.2.82):
Minor update to station selection
Listen to live radio from the station that champions the best REAL music from the last 40 years. You won’t find any pop pap on this station, but you will find real guitars, real drums and real singers – music from artists such as The Beatles, Arcade Fire, Adele, Foo Fighters, U2, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, REM, Muse, Coldplay, Oasis, The Kings of Leon, Queen, The Killers and lots more.
Absolute Radio is also the home of the No Repeat Guarantee which means they keep things fresh by never playing the same song twice during your work day. Wake up to the 7-day Breakfast Show with Christian O’Connell during the week, and Frank Skinner and Dave Gorman on weekends. Listen to Ian Wright’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Football, Ronnie Wood’s Classic Rock Show and make your evening commute more bearable with Geoff Lloyd’s Hometime Show. Absolute Radio has music, comedy and football covered.
As well as Absolute Radio, you can also listen to Absolute Radio extra, Absolute Classic Rock or a range of decade stations to hear the music from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.
