Welcome to the return of Retro Hit Radio

That's right, we're back baby!

It was never over but for three long years, Retro Hit Radio has been sitting quietly on the sidelines. Key crew had other things to pursue at the time... but the band is back together and we couldn't be more thrilled!

We reluctantly turned the switch off back in 2010 after a series of technical mishaps forced us off air. In a way, it was a bit of a sign to take the break we probably deserved a lot. We started in 2001 as you might be aware, and really cranked things up in 2004. Six years on, then three off ... and now we're ripped and ready to burn some rubber!

We hope you come along for the ride - and for heavens sake, tell a friend!
