Angel Radio was the UK’s first radio station to provide 24-hour programmes specifically for the over 60s.
Angel Radio has a team of over 70 volunteers, most of them older people.
Angel Radio was one of the very first community radio stations to go on air and has been broadcasting a full radio service 24-hours a day, 7-days a week since February 2002.
Angel Radio provides uplifting nostalgic entertainment in the form of music, humour and memories from the years 1900 to 1963.
Angel Radio brings its audience current information regarding health, diet, pensions, finance and local service providers.
Angel Radio stimulates listener’s mental health with reminiscence therapy and enhances their physical health with dance and exercises.
Angel Radio accentuates the positive aspects of old age.
The station broadcasts on 89.3 MHz fm, also on the South Hants DAB digital network, several local DAB multiplexes, and online.
Angel Radio creates a sense of value and self-worth for staff and audience and gives a voice to a section of the community who are often segregated, lonely and generally undervalued and underserved by the media.
