Facts and stats

Absolute Radio was born on 7.45am on 29 September 2008. The station is based in Golden Square in London, and plays popular rock music. The station was originally known as Virgin Radio, owned by Virgin then Chris Evans's Ginger Media Group, followed by Scottish Media Group and the Times of India who rebranded it. It's now owned by Bauer Media.

Hampered by a poor quality national AM signal, the station embraced the possibilities afforded by new technology. It was the first station to stream online 24-hours a day in Europe, and the first with a mobile phone app.
