Dedicated To Promoting Melodic Music For The Older Listener
With one of the countries largest nostalgic music collections we pride ourselves in bringing those memories flooding back as we take you on a journey down Memory Lane.
Whether you’re a fan of the dance bands of the 1930’s & 40’s, long for Louis Armstrong or crave The Carpenters, we’ve got it all and more. But, it’s not all about the music, we also have hilarious comedy material to lighten your day, programmes that specialise in hearing your memories, whether local history – family history or anecdotal stories from your past.
And with music being a proven therapeutic tool in prompting memory, we also cater for people living with dementia, helping those affected to recall – to interact and to re-engage using specially selected music that calms listeners at key times of the day.
The expertise behind the sound comes from a small dedicated team including Paul Wappat who has more than 25 years experience of broadcasting for the BBC and Smooth Radio.
We plan to go live in early 2018 and need YOUR help in launching this unique, exciting sound for the UK. We have to raise £60,000 to build our studio and site the archive material along with upgrading our playout system ready to go online.

Music is a proven therapeutic tool in prompting memory and engaging people who may have withdrawn from other activities, helping those affected by dementia to recall, interact and to reengage.
Songs and melodies from the past often have an almost magical effect. With more than 850,000 people affected by dementia in the UK, reminiscent entertainment is a highly effective tool to help avoid social isolation and to increase engagement.
