1940s Radio is a jazz music radio station based in the UK. The vintage radio station specialises in broadcasting Swing, Big Band, Jazz, Jive, and Old time radio shows 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 1940s Radio features cherished music memories going back to the 40s. The station broadcasts the best wartime tunes and artists as part of vintage comedy and drama.
1940s Radio's main aim is to promote music that other stations don't dedicate enough airtime to since they feel it's unpopular and non-profitable. The station broadcasts historical news and music from the 20s, 30s, and 40s that were heard mostly in England and the USA. 1940s Radio is the first radio station in the UK to broadcast such a level of original archive material online. Apart from this, they also have their high-quality programmes presented live. These presentations have set a benchmark for various internet radio stations.
The station operates two channels: the Light Programme and the Home Service. The latter concentrates on old-time radio programming, while the former focuses more on music. The Light Programme also airs comedy, drama, and variety. The two stations are part of Pumpkin FM, Old Time Radio Network, a popular brand in the UK, and you can listen to them online for free.
