There’s an Absolute Radio station for every decade. The official Absolute Radio player app is the best way to listen to music from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s & 2000s, plus Absolute Classic Rock and Absolute Radio – home of the No Repeat Guarantee, Frank Skinner, Ian Wright and The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show.

You won’t find any plastic pop pap on our stations, but you will find real guitars, real drums and real singers with music from artists such as The Beatles, Arcade Fire, Adele, Foo Fighters, U2, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, Duran Duran, REM, Muse, Coldplay, Oasis, The Kings of Leon, Queen & The Killers. With the No Repeat Guarantee you won’t hear the same song twice between 10am-5pm on any of our stations.

UK listeners can sign-in to hear fewer ads and more music.

    If this app worked properly it would be amazing. I cant get high quality. I registered, im in the uk but still it sounds like an am radio. Disappointed because I like absolutes different decade stations. The hq button just freezes.
