Absolute Radio 90s expands to cover UK

Absolute Radio 90s is now available across the UK on DAB digital radio.

The radio station is dedicated to music from the nineties decade, playing artists including brit-pop bands Oasis and Blur. The station also plays music from Primal Scream, Prince and the Chemical Brothers.

Launched in 2010, the digital radio station has only been available in some parts of the UK on DAB. The station says the expansion “is set to serve the UK’s growing demand for nineties anthems and culture”.

Many well known names from Absolute Radio already appear on the station, including Christian O’Connell, Andy Bush, Danielle Perry and Pete Donaldson. Comedians Frank Skinner and Jason Manford can also be heard with their weekend shows.

Absolute Radio 90s also features ‘The 90s Chart Show with Sarah Champion’ and ‘Forgotten 90s with Chris Martin’, both delving deeper into the decade’s music than the main Absolute Radio.

“The 90s renaissance is stronger than ever and Absolute Radio 90s perfectly encapsulates the decade’s music and culture,” said Absolute Radio’s Content Director, Paul Sylvester.

“Already a fully-fledged radio station with a brilliant line-up of presenters and programmes, we’re delighted to be able to share the station with an even bigger audience.”

This February the station will host a special on Liam and Noel Gallagher, the brothers famous for Oasis. The tributes will air on 3rd and 4th February and will feature extended interviews, documentaries and live music performances.

It may be necessary to retune DAB digital radios to find the station, which is now broadcasting on the Digital One network. Absolute Radio 90s is also available in the Absolute Radio app and online at www.absoluteradio.co.uk.
