Memory Lane Radio

Welcome to Memory Lane Radio

Memory Lane Radio is an online radio station also available on your smart speaker.  We’re  specifically crafted with the older listener in mind.  Whilst other broadcasters 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, from Sinatra to Sinitta…..

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.
