Dedicated To Promoting Melodic Music For The Older Listener

Memory Lane Radio
Memory Lane Radio is a brand new online radio service for the UK that is specifically crafted for the older listener.  While other streaming services say they’re for the more mature music enthusiast, they often don’t deliver on that promise – but at Memory Lane Radio we guarantee to play the songs and artists you simply don’t hear anymore.
Your Memories

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.

Music Therapy

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’re Launching Soon

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.

How Music Helps

Music is a proven therapeutic tool in prompting memory and engaging people who may have withdrawn from other activities, helping those affected by dementia to recall, interact and to reengage.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.

Memories Are Made Of This

Memory Lane Radio prides itself on a world-class database of nostalgic tunes from the 1920’s to the present day as well as owning the exclusive rights to recordings of local comedians and singers unique to the North East.Memory Lane Radio helps to bring special times flooding back with music from dance bands like Glen Miller, crooners such as Bing Crosby, Al Martino, Frank Sinatra and icons of jazz including Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong through to Abba, The Rolling Stones and Michael Buble.
