Our Programme Features
9am & 3pm Mon-Fri
Memory Lane originated as a simple half hour when Graham Dene was on The Wireless. It proved so popular that we decided to make it a regular feature in the morning and the afternoon. So now you can hear hits from one particular featured year at 9am and another at 3pm UK time. Along with the music we bring you some of the news stories from the year in question and we challenge you to guess the year.
On Sunday afternoon at 3pm it's "The No1 Show on The Radio" - on The Wireless. Every song is a No1 hit except one song which didn't make it to the top of the charts. Can you work out which track it is?
The Saturday Club
7am - 1pm Saturdays
Back in the days of the BBC Light Programme and then Radio 2, the late Brian Matthew presented what we remember as a brilliant show, focusing on all the new music that was coming out in the 60s. The Beatles and many others appeared with Brian. We can't promise you any appearances from those legendary stars but we can guarantee you a whole morning of solid gold from the sixties.
Diana Luke opens up the doors of the Saturday Club at 7am and Gary Champion picks up the baton from 10am .
The Dinner Party
We've gone Disco on the early part of the Dinner Party. From 6-9 (6-10 on Friday & Saturday) you'll hear great tracks to dance to from the 60s and 70s. That's followed by a smoother, older sound with standards, classics, show-tunes, big bands, bossa nova and the Rat Pack. Artists like Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jnr, Dean Martin, Barbra Streisand, you name it we've got it in The Wireless kitchen and we'll serve it up to order.
Just like our Saturday Club on Saturday morning, 70's Sunday takes us back to the sensational seventies. It's Pop and Soul, Rock'n'Roll, Disco to Punk and no junk! You'll hear a Top 3 from a seventies year at 7.30, 8.30 and 9.30am.
At 8am we'll play one of those great seventies TV themes.
