A surprisingly good AM radio station in the UK. Also available on FM in London, and various other places around the world.

The playlist is nearly all classic rock - what they call "real music" - with a little chart indie and alternative in there too. There's no pop or cheese to be found, which is a Good Thing.

The station is no longer under the control of the Virgin group - it was formerly owned by Chris Evans' Ginger Media for a while, but this has since been acquired by the Scottish Media Group.
