Why I Love And Recommend ‘Absolute Radio’

Absolute Radio (formerly Virgin Radio) based in One Golden Square London is a Rock and Indie station that also broadcasts British music festivals and football matches live. So, if you’re a fan of lighter Rock, live music, and football Absolute radio is perfect for you!

Recently, Absolute radio was reviewed by The Guardian and described as being a bit like “Lidl FM”. I think that was a very harsh review, although I can sometimes see how it would be the case. I would suggest that you give the station a try either by listening on DAB in the UK, Online at www.absoluteradio.com, or by downloading their application from the Android, iOS, Nokia, Blackberry, Mac app stores.

My favorite show is hosted by Iain Lee from 11pm Monday-Thursday. It is a very funny show, and is much better than some of the ridiculous shows other stations (both Radio and TV) have at that time. I also love their live coverage of music festivals such as ‘Hard Rock Calling’ and ‘The Isle Of White Festival’.

These days it seems unpopular to listen to the radio unless you are in a car or in bed, but I see it as being by far superior to TV, and you can have it in the background whilst you are working or reading. What do you think?
