Absolute Radio


There’s an Absolute Radio station for every decade. The official Absolute Radio player app is the best way to listen to music from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s & 2000s, plus Absolute Classic Rock and Absolute Radio – home of the No Repeat Guarantee, Frank Skinner, Ian Wright and The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show.

You won’t find any plastic pop pap on our stations, but you will find real guitars, real drums and real singers with music from artists such as The Beatles, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, U2, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, David Bowie, REM, Muse, Coldplay, Oasis, The Kings of Leon, Queen & The Killers. With the No Repeat Guarantee you won’t hear the same song twice between 10am-5pm on any of our stations.

I wasn't a fan of the stations, really. The app was pretty good though. Couldn't save to SD card and it was pretty big. Uninstalled.

PLAYLISTS FAILS TO LOAD!! I just get the rotating circular symbol as if it's trying to load, but they NEVER do!! Therefore, only 4 STARS. If this gets fixed then I'll happily change to 5 STARS!!

Podcasts?????? Where've the podcasts gone? That was the best thing about the pre-update app. It's beyond me why the link wouldn't be included. Incredibly senseless.
